Mysterious Swedish heavy rock buzz band GHOST performed at Orion Music + More, the two-day festival created by METALLICA that was held June 23-24 at Bader Field in Atlantic City, New Jersey. METALLICA frontman James Hetfield personally took to the stage to introduce GHOST, telling the audience, “I appreciate you coming coming down early and checking out one of my new favorite bands. From Sweden… It’s never too early for scary, all right? Please welcome from Sweden… GHOST.”
Fan-filmed video footage of Hetfield’s GHOST introduction, as well as the first song of the band’s Orion Music + More set, can be seen below.
GHOST is rumored to have inked a deal with Seven Four Ent. The band is said to be the first signing for the label, which is led by former Warner Bros. Records Chairman/CEO Tom Whalley.
