Professionally filmed video footage of Swedish occult rockers GHOST performing the song “Secular Haze” live on May 11 at Webster Hall in New York City can be seen below.
A nameless ghoul stated: “Playing in New York will always feel very special for us, since it was the first city in the U.S. that embraced us. Every time we play there, it marks another step up for us — going from filling up the basement at Webster Hall, to filling up the Bowery to finally play at sold-out Webster Hall. We simply love New York.”
According to Bravewords.com, On September 20th, Swedish heavy metal band GHOST (aka Ghost B.C.) were featured guests on Brazil’s Multi Show following their appearance at the Rock In Rio festival. Check out the interview below along with the band’s complete Rock In Rio show:
On September 19th the Swedish metallers GHOST performed at the Rock In Rio festival in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. Check out below the professionally filmed video footage of the entire show:
According to Blabbermouth.net, Part one of a documentary web series focusing on Swedish occult rockers GHOST can be seen below (courtesy of Vice’s Noisey.com). Director Greg Olliver, who co-directed and produced 2010’s “Lemmy” film and the soon-to-be-released psychological thriller/horror “Devoured”, directed the video for GHOST.
Filming for the series and planned feature-length documentary began on the summer festival circuit and continues through the year.
The first episode features live performance, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage from GHOST’s tour in Sweden, Germany and Belgium.The project is being produced through Olliver’s New York City-based production company Secret Weapon Films.
“Greg has the perfect mix of story-telling acumen, musical taste and a fondness for the macabre… it made him the ideal choice to tell the story of GHOST,” said Adam Farrell, creative director of the band’s label, Loma Vista. “You can’t point a camera at GHOST without every frame of footage looking like heavy-metal gold,” said Olliver. “I was thrilled to hear that they wanted to work with me. Making films with legends like Lemmy and Johnny Winter, who have well-known stories, is one thing, but to work with a band that’s on a fast rise to fame and has a mysterious story which is currently unraveling requires an entirely different approach. Add in the anonymity of the group and the look that they have… and you suddenly have a whole lot to chew on as a director. The only downside is that I felt a bit silly on stage filming while NOT wearing a robe and black mask.”
GHOST’s sophomore album, “Infestissumam”, sold around 14,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 28 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD topped the official chart in the group’s home country after selling nearly five times as many copies as the No. 2 album, MISS LI’s “Wolves”.
