Ghost B.C. – The Olde One – Papaganda Ep. 1

Here is the first part of a Ghost/Ghost B.C. that appeared on the web yesterday. Probably one of the coolest bands in the world.

Much has been written about enigmatic Swedish theatrical metal band Ghost B.C.—”subversive,” “refreshing,” “blasphemous”—but even in all those countless reviews, interviews, and think-pieces do we miss the words that properly encapsulate what it is about this clan of nameless ghouls that makes them so endlessly captivating, hooking listeners from the most disparate corners of music fandom.

With a live show that more closely resembles a pre-apocalyptic occult ceremony than anything you might refer to as a “concert,” the collective, helmed by current harbinger Papa Emeritus II, delivers spiritual awakening and religious deviance to their devoted followers. In the first episode of Papaganda, our mini-series on the cult of Ghost B.C., we explore the papal lineage, the reign of Emeritus II, and the future of the Ghost dynasty.
