Ghost

AKA: Ghost B.C.

About Ghost

Ghost, (formerly known as “Ghost BC” in the US until the release of Meliora), is a Swedish doom/glam/satanic metal band with psychedelic elements that harkens back to a more eerie period of metal, evoking the sound of bands like Black Sabbath and Blue Öyster Cult. They won the Grammy in 2016 for Best Metal Performance.

They are well known for their occult-themed lyrics in their songs, as well as the way they portray themselves in a distantly tongue-in-cheek manner as a dark, sinister religious sect, commanded by the Emeritus bloodline.

(Papa Emeritus 0, the oldest family member)


The band members retain a greater degree of anonymity, five of whom are known by name as, “Nameless Ghouls,” signing their names as the alchemical symbol they’ve each been assigned:

  • Fire (lead guitarist)
  • Water (bassist)
  • Air (keyboardist)
  • Earth (drummer)
  • Aether (rhythm guitarist)

It is also noted that all songs are written by “A Ghoul Writer,” but it’s known that Papa Emeritus writes the songs and only 2-3 members are part of the songwriting process.


Papa Emeritus himself has changed appearances thrice and now, for Prequelle, the lead singer is known by Cardinal Copia (though the vocalist himself remains the same man).

The first such instance occurred on 12/12/12, when Papa Emeritus introduced a younger man in a similar costume as Papa Emeritus II.

The second instance occurred on June 3rd, 2015, when an ad released by the band revealed that P.E. II had been ‘fired’ for not having opened any churches, toppled any governments, or converted any world leaders in his time as Papa Emeritus. Papa Emeritus III was introduced as his younger brother.

Papa Emeritus III was after kicked off by Papa Emeritus 0, known for being the oldest member of the family and, after some months, for the band’s fourth album Prequelle, a new leader was announced, Cardinal Copia, the only lead singer that is not of the Emeritus’ bloodline.

Regarding the small change of name during a period form ‘Ghost’ to ‘Ghost B.C.’ a Nameless Ghoul said:

The “B.C.” is for “Because of Copyright” or “Before Coachella,” if you want. No, it’s just an amendment. We don’t call ourselves that. The name of the is still Ghost. We are still referred to as Ghost. That’s what we are. We just put on the B.C. when we need to do that. It’s like saying, “Let’s go to the ‘Jack in the Box, LLC.’” You don’t do that.
