A Nameless Ghoul talks about religion and anonymity on Brazilian TV

Dear fellow Ghost devotees,

in this interesting interview from São Paulo, aired on Brazilian TV, our Nameless Ghoul explains more thoroughly why Ghost chose the Christian religion as a reference point to create their concept, inverting its symbolism and basing their lyrics mainly on the subjects that are deemed by the christian culture as 'blasphemous'. He also talks about how the original idea of being anonymous started, how it has then evolved in time as they have gained more success and how this does not affect anyway the peculiarity of Ghost's presentation and their way of delivering their live rituals . Let us enjoy together the entire interview below.

Interview with two Nameless Ghouls at Rock in Rio

Dear fellow Ghost devotees,

a new (and sort of unusual, we should say) interview today has been brought to our attention by a kind
 devotee from Brasil: two of the Nameless Ghouls have been interviewed after the ritual at Rock in Rio and have talked a bit about how it felt to perform there, what the whole idea of being masked is about and what it represents in the concept of Ghost, and their musical influences. (Additionally also a brief attempt at the unfamous groupies question was made, but our Nameless Ghouls handled it like the gentleGhouls they are and elegantly cut it short). Overall a brief but nonetheless interesting interview that we appreciated a lot here in the Coven, also because, after playing an amazing ritual and giving their best on stage just right before doing the interview, we wonder how they could even manage to sound so fresh and be so talktive like they were not tired at all and conducted it so smoothly. Ah well, we almost forgot they are not of this world, so that is probably the reason...;)

Ghost at Rock in Rio, Brazil 19/09/2013

Dear fellow Ghost devotees,

did you enjoy the live streaming of the ritual at Rock in Rio? We think it has been one of the most heartfelt and intense performances our beloved Ghost have ever delivered, and we are still in awe. Our Papa and all the Nameless Ghouls have been simply flawless,they always are of course, but this was a special occasion which has made us unbelievably proud of being Ghost devotees, for many many reasons that probably we do not need to explain here in details, not that we would be able to do that anyway at the moment, we are barely able to put together a sentence as we still are in a mystical trance after witnessing such awesomeness. When Papa sang the 'above the stars of God' verse, it never felt so true! {And needless to say, when He introduced 'Stand By Him' saying, 'I think they are in badly need of a steady, sexy drumbeat...hey Drummer Ghoul!' one of us was literally levitating off the ground}. The whole ritual was impressive and we are sure that all the fellow devotees in Rio de Janeiro will never forget this experience! By the way, apparently Papa's clothes in Mexico City were missing only due to a delay with the luggage, and not because they were stolen, at least this is what we have been hearing lately and actually, earlier at Rock in Rio he was wearing all his usual garments, so hopefully this is what happened. We know that a very kind fellow devotee has recorded everything, so we will soon be able to re-watch this amazing ritual over and over again, in the meanwhile, let us enjoy some humble screen caps we took. But before doing that, we really have to end this brief comment of ours with a very sincere 'Thank you, Ghost'. For being everything that you are and for never ceasing to thrill us with your great music and art!

Ghost at Foro Sol, Mexico City 17/09/2013

Dear fellow Ghost devotees,

after reading Ghost's post-ritual message yesterday, mentioning something about coming back to Mexico "properly dressed",  many of us were wondering what might have happened, and as some first videos, even though a bit blurry, started to appear, we could see that actually our Papa was performing without his Papal hat and wearing a different robe! Well, in the video of "Stand By Him" that you can find below, we can listen to an explanation directly by him: somewhere along their path, his unholy garments got stolen!, but without hesitating, they have promptly come up with an alternative solution and delivered their awesome performance anyway. Nothing can keep them from spreading their gospel, and may whoever tried to ruin their crusade be swallowed by the the eternal boredom of Heaven while we instead enjoy the pleasures of Hell along with Ghost! Here is some footage from the ritual, unfortunately so far there are only a few, low quality videos, but hopefully something better will pop up soon. At least, in certain moments the blurry quality adds a eerie touch indeed! For sure, we can anyway hear and see a very passionate support and devotion coming from the crowd: well done, fellow devotees in Mexico ;)

A brief update: apparently Papa's outfits were missing only due to a delay with the luggage, not because they were stolen, so we guess that just one hundred years of boredom instead of the whole eternity might suffice as punishment for whoever caused this to happen. ;)

Ghost in Latin America and Rock in Rio Live Streaming

Dear fellow Ghost devotees,

today our Papa Emeritus II and the Nameless Ghouls start their tour in Latin America together with Iron Maiden and Slayer, and of course we wish them, and all the fellow devotees who will attend the rituals there, a great and blasphemous time! As usual in the Coven we will be avidly following every ritual through pictures, videos and comments by other fellow devotees - Thursday will be especially unblessed because it is possible to watch a live streaming of the performance at Rock in Rio on the festival's channel:

Ghost will be performing on World Stage at 20:30 (Rio de Janeiro local time) - we hope you will join us to witness the ritual and celebrate once again their awesomeness together!
