Famous for their eccentricity, costumes, and sermon-like stage aesthetics, the Swedish band Ghost is one of Europe's biggest metal rock bands. With over 120,000 albums sold worldwide, the band has expanded its fanbase outside Europe. In fact, the band has been nominated in the Grammy awards four times, winning its first nomination in 2016 for the song "Cirice" as Best Metal Performance. The band is led by Tobias Forge, who also refers to himself as "Papa Emeritus IV."
The band's latest album, "Impera," was released in the first quarter of 2022 and peaked at number one in many territories, including Germany, the US, Spain, Sweden, Austria, and many others. The album's release was preceded by three singles: "Hunter's Moon," "Call Me Little Sunshine," and "Twenties," all of which introduced the overall theme of the album about "the rise and fall of empires." The album received widespread critical acclaim and was deemed by the heavy metal magazine Metal Hammer as one of "The Best Metal Albums of 2022."
To further promote the album, the band is embarking on a US tour this summer. Dubbed the "Re-Imperatour," the tour will run in 27 cities, including Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Chicago, Concord, and Clarkston, among many others. The band will stop at Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island on August 15 with another Swedish band, Amon Amarth.
Known for hits like "Blood Eagle," "Twilight Of The Thunder God," "Cry Of The Black Birds," and "Guardians Of Asgaard," Amon Amarth is a metal band heavily influenced by Norse myth and has popularized a subgenre known as "Viking metal."
