Swedish metal band Ghost is best known for its eccentric, costumed, sermon-like stage presence powered by its metal and pop-infused hard rock. Tobias Forge leads the band and serves as the songwriter and conceptualist. Along with him are his bandmates, dressed in various demonic Pope costumes. He is supported by a group of "Nameless Ghouls" concealed by cloaks and elaborate makeup. The main themes of the band's music are horror, occultism, and Satanism. Starting with their debut album "Oppos Eponymous" (2010), the band has become an odd preference of rock enthusiasts. They have gained a solid following as "Infestissumam" (2013), "Meliora" (2015), and "Prequelle" (2018) came out. Their latest album, "Impera," came out in 2022 with themes focusing on"the rise and fall of empires."
"The Lord of the Rings" inspired metal band Amon Amarth is best known for their "Viking metal," a genre dedicated to them because they consistently incorporate themes from Norse myth and its history into their music. After they formed, they made a demo called "Thor Arising," but due to technical difficulties with the recordings, they decided not to release it. Their second demo, "Arrival of the Fimbul Winter," was successfully released in 1994. Afterward, it ended up taking them more than ten years to become well-known. When their sixth studio album, "With Oden on Our Side," ascended the Billboard chart in 2006, it all began for them. The breakout album "Twilight of the Thunder God" followed it, peaking at number ten on year-end lists and receiving favorable reviews in 2008. In 2022, they released a new album called "The Great Heathen Army" after a few reasonably well-received follow-up albums.
Ghost will be headlining their "Re-Imperatour" American tour this year. If you are a long fan time or someone interested in their aesthetic, see them at the Pine Knob Music Theatre on Monday, August 14. Buy tickets now!
