Ghost were feeling surprisingly talkative for a relatively reclusive band, and decided to do a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) yesterday and here are the best questions and answers from that:

Each week on ‘Throwback Thursday’ we dust off a crucial but underrated album, without which heavy metal’s evolution would have turned out quite differently. This week we’re smashed, banged and walloped by the seminal New Wave of British Heavy Metal trio, Raven: self-proclaimed creators of “Athletic Rock” and twisted uncles to thrash.
"Working with the lyrics and with Efthimis conceptual guidance, I set up a vast backdrop of space and time for our characters to inhabit, incorporating various planetary and astronomical elements. The characters include mythical deities such as Gaia, Prometheus, Venus / Pandora, as well as Astron Black, who symbolises mankind and its progress through time. [...]
If you follow GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus on Twitter, you are aware that he is currently in New York City, on quite the publicity blitz. Earlier today, the Facebook page of Obscura Antiques & Oddities, the storefront from the TV show Oddities, posted the attached photo of Oderus Urungus and Balsac visiting their store.

Hopefully, this will give you some ideas for [...]
If you missed it, over the weekend, Ghost unveiled a new track to the masses, called "Secular Haze" and it is pretty great. The band know how to make a catchy number. Additionally, the band launched a YouTube page, and released a live performance of the song, and this is where things get interesting.
Yesterday, we reported some bummer news, as longtime All Shall Perish guitarist Ben Orum announced he was leaving the band. The decision wasn't an easy one, as the last 10 years of his life were spent being in the band, but with having children and a business to maintain, the touring lifestyle was no longer [...]
We've had some fun this week with the news that Chris Brown was seen out and about in a leather jacket featuring metal/hardcore patches, which he may or may not have gotten from his girl Rihanna. Yesterday, we learned the jacket was custom made by DNA designer Noel Austin. The fine sleuths at Metal Insider [...]
This is intense news. Moments after writing about his Halloween costume, I was forwarded a link to this page which reports that the Suicide Silence frontman was killed in a motorcycle accident last night. He was pronounced dead at 6:17 a.m. this morning at UCI Medical Center in Orange County. He was checked into the [...]
What Did METALLICA, MACHINE HEAD, VEIL OF MAYA And Some Of Your Favorite Bands Dress As For Halloween?Posted on November 1st, 2012
Halloween is not just a time for awesome pumpkin carvings, it's a time to play dress up. While my Danzig costume didn't go exactly as planned, it still got some good laughs. That's what Halloween is about… just having some fun, and perhaps a few LULz. Which is why, we've scoured the social networks to [...]
Let's kick this story off by stating the obvious: none of the characters mentioned are remotely metal. Still, this one is too funny to pass up. A few months ago, we all had a good laugh/scare when the news broke that Canadian abominations Avril Lavigne and Nickelback's Chad Kroeger would soon be tying the knot. [...]
There's a storm coming, so we're leaving you stocked with plenty of non-perishable news items and videos for the weekend. This was an interesting week, where for the second straight week in a row, people can't get enough of that gross Cattle Decap video. We also learned perhaps a bit too much about two metal [...]
With Halloween around the corner, and Down in the dressing up mood in their most recent video for "Witchtripper", the band has launched a Halloween costume contest on their Facebook page asking fans to share their Halloween garb, with bonus points if you dress like one of the Down dudes from the video. The band [...]
So here I am back at Station 4 in St. Paul, waiting in line to be conquered by some of the finest metal bands that Greece, Brazil, Jerusalem, Canada Rome, and Colombia (via the US) have to offer. Three patch-vested teenagers who reek of B.O. are doing their best Beavis & Butthead impersonations behind me [...]
NOTE: The following article was originally posted in 2010, but is being reposted in light of the Halloween season. It's October!? Fuck this year went by quick, but I'm stoked none the less because that must mean it's Autumn here in NYC. This of course means my metal hoodie and beanie attire is finally back [...]
