Ghost At O2 Academy, Birmingham 23/03/2013

Dear fellow Ghost devotees,

Some live videos from the ritual in Birmingham have been uploaded on Youtube, let us enjoy them together:

"Infestissumam" + "Per Aspera Ad Inferi" + "Con Clavi Con Dio"



"As incense wafts ethereally through the venue, white smoke emerges (any issues of Papal leadership are thankfully kept backstage), before the faceless, hooded ghouls that comprise the band take their positions onstage. Stoic and solemn, Satan's representative on Earth, Papa Emeritus emerges, gliding to the fore within a jet black cassock adorned with inverted crosses. Benign waves of his hand bless the flock, his eerie skeletal make-up accentuated by the sickly green light show. 
[...]The metal scene should be grateful for Ghost and all those who dare to be different; nothing is more stultifying than a glut of bands that all look and sound the same."
