This being Ghost after all, they needed to go about it in probably the most trolling approach attainable, placing it out within the type of a pulpy information present on YouTube on April Idiot’s Day – suppose America’s Most Wished, Brass Eye or Inside Probe (if you happen to’re a very ardent My Title Is Earl fan).
Titled Steel Myths Half 2 (there is not a primary half), the ‘present’ explores the inner historical past and universe of Ghost through speaking heads (that includes interviews with ‘specialists’ together with Buzz Braverton and host Dusty Comstock) and clips that profess to uncover the mysteries behind the band.
Granted, they throw a number of humorous curveballs into the combination (“there’s rising help for the theories that post-’69 [Papa] Nihil was pulling the strings behind Kiss”), however the video does do a reasonably nice job of explaining the mythos of the band, from on-stage ‘kidnappings’ of former Papas to the legitimacy of Papa Emeritus IV (previously Cardinal Copia).
With the Impera tour because of totally kick off this coming Saturday (April 9), Ghost will little doubt broaden their mythos extra with extra updates, costumes and set items (and hopefully a number of new songs for good measure). The band already hinted on the daybreak of a new period with their US tour in the beginning of 2022, so a primer on their historical past is precisely what we have to get totally into the spirit of all that’s but to come back from the Ghost universe.
