Pics: Ghost at Palace Theatre in Albany

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, June 13, 2017 at 5:16 PM (PST)

We have not had any photos for a little bit from our beloved butter muffin/camera pro Matt Slater (also of the band Beneath The Remains), as he has been chillin’ and here and there doing some stuff for the cool Outsider Magazine. Today Slater Master Hate returns to the Metal Riot fold with some cool shots of Sweden’s reigning melodic spooky gang Ghost from their recent off night from Iron Maiden tour headlining stop in Albany, NY. I can imagine it was a hell of a great show in such a good venue to see Ghost and Zombi.

Check ’em out!

KNAC coming back to the airwaves

Posted by Metal Dude on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 4:01 PM (PST)

After more than 20 years of anticipation and recent reports of Ted Pritchard (best known by the nicknames Thrasher and Thrashpie) mentioning the possibility of returning to the radio industry, a spokesperson has revealed that the long-defunct legendary radio station KNAC Pure Rock will return to terrestrial radio in Los Angeles, California later this year.

The spokesperson, who declined to reveal his name, said, “I know many fans have been waiting over 20 years for this. I know I have. It’s about time we give a younger generation of metal fans what they deserve”. Although the spokesperson said that it’s unlikely the revamped KNAC will return to its original frequency 105.5-FM, it will “definitely be an all-metal and hard rock radio station just like the old KNAC”, playing music from classic bands like Black Sabbath to Metallica to White Zombie to today’s music like Ghost and Steel Panther. For more info and updates on the upcoming return of KNAC-FM, go here.

KNAC signed off before 2PM on February 15th, 1995, ending it with Metallica’s “Fade to Black”, and it was replaced by the Spanish-language format KBUE (Que Buena). KNAC was resurrected in 1998 as the internet radio station KNAC.com, which still exists to this day.

UPDATE: This was an April Fool’s joke. We owe those (including KNAC fans) who have been waiting for years for the return of KNAC as an FM station our sincere apology.

Ghost’s “Cirice” video is a talent show of Satanic delight

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at 8:02 AM (PST)

ghostmelioracd

Ghost‘s highly anticipated (by ghouls and trolls alike) new record Meliora has an official first video for Sabbath meets Flash Gordon sounding first single “Cirice”? I love everything this refreshing band touches.

Best talent show ever? I dunno. I remember my sixth grade performance of Partners In Kryme’s “Turtle Power”  was pretty shell-tastic (me and my friends had paper mache turtle masks and hockey goalie padding for shells). But this new Ghost video might ust have us beat. You decide BELOW.

“Put the lotion in the Papal Tiara!”

Hmm, that title is not meant to disparage the mighty Ghoul, but let’s face it…there aren’t a lot of bands anywhere remotely as subversive as Ghost. People can talk shit but they are home doing something a fraction as cool and probably wearing three day old underwear. Their new song is called “Cirice” and comes with maybe the coolest piece of artwork they have done yet, like listen to “American Girl” and get freakin’ kidnapped and thrown in a pit levels of WOAH. Slam dunk for Satan and Big Papa III. Ad the song is brilliant, one of their more adept  and certainly a net level for the band. It’s like a dark cloud got thrown over 80’s arena pop rock and haunted with heavy metal’s bloody trail of conquest.

While these Swedes are not as Kvlt anymore as some other cool band like like Night Viper or , but they can still stomp a Mercyful mudhole in your ass and whistle Abba during a black Sabbath mass over your grave of mutilation, as blood is pissed and wine is sipped. “Can you hear the rumble?”

“Cirice” is from the upcoming album MELIORA (which has nothing to do with Linkin Park’s METEORA, though both may be works of the devil. Actually, I can’t even front and pretend I don’t bump Linkin Park, haha.

Available August 21st, 2015. Download this track for free at: http://found.ee/Ghost_CiriceDL

Ghost B.C. posts “Papaganda” documentary clip

Posted by GageT on Friday, September 13, 2013 at 8:14 AM (PST)

ghostbc2013cdMysterious doom metallers Ghost B.C. (or Ghost, as you still probably know them in Europe), premiered part one of their new documentary series called Papaganda. 

Papaganda looks at the reign of frontman Papa Emeritus II and the future of the band. Director Greg Olliver had this to say:

“You can’t point a camera at Ghost without every frame of footage looking like heavy-metal gold. 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 NOT wearing a robe and black mask.”

Filming for the series began earlier on the festival circuit and will continue through the year. Apparently a full-length documentary will follow after that.

Check out the Papaganda clip here.

Ghost B.C.’s new album just topped the Swedish charts

Posted by GageT on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 8:09 AM (PST)

ghostbc2013cdIn an oddly awesome turn of events, Ghost B.C.‘s new record, Infestissumam, has risen to the top of the Swedish music charts, according to the Swedish music-industry web site Musikindustrin.se, selling nearly five times as many copies as the number 2 spot, Miss Li’s Wolves. Apparently Sweden just can’t get enough of those lovable ghouls.

What makes this even better is the fact that four CD manufacturers initially just refused to print the CD because of some of the deluxe edition’s artwork. The manufacturers all objected to the Gustave Dore-inspired sacrilegious imagery, which apparently depicts something like a forest nymph orgy.

Ghost cover and release studio version of ABBA’s “I’m A Marionette”

Posted by SeanB on Sunday, January 20, 2013 at 5:34 PM (PST)

Mysterious Swedish heavy metal group Ghost have released a studio recording of their cover version of ABBA’s “I’m A Marionette.”  It is being reported that the track actually features Dave Grohl on production and drums, but that hasn’t been confirmed.  Release is via Spotify and as the B-side on a limited 10-inch clear vinyl of the band’s new single, “Secular Haze.”

To listen to the song for yourself click right here.

Ghost are slated to unveil their sophomore album Infestissumam sometime in the spring 0f 2013. It will be released under the new label Loma Vista Recordings and produced by Grammy Award-winning Nick Raskulinecz.  One of the band’s Nameless Ghouls recently spoke with Decibel about the decision to cover ABBA:

“We are Swedish, and ABBA has always been a very, very strong part of our modern musical heritage. We all grew up with their music very present. Not only that — ABBA basically took a few hundred years of traditional Swedish music and made it into pop songs. I’m talking about folk music from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Anybody outside Scandinavia probably isn’t familiar with those tones or musical language. But one of the reasons ABBA broke through so enormously first in Sweden was probably because of their folk music influences. I think anyone from Scandinavia is easily infatuated with that sort of music, so ABBA has a deeper meaning to us, I think.”

Ghost sign major record contract

Posted by SeanB on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 at 8:50 AM (PST)

Swedish satanic mystery metal group Ghost have been signed to Seven Four Entertainment, reportedly for an advance in the neighborhood of $750,000.  This is apparently a new label formed by ex-Warner Brothers exec Tom Whalley and is part of the Universal Republic family.  There’s not much info around about Seven Four and there’s a Myspace page for what looks to be a defunct hip-hop label that goes by the same name, so this may be their first signing.

Ghost recently wrapped up a North American tour where they opened for Mastodon and Opeth and no doubt earned quite a few new fans and probably some leverage with contract negotiations.

MR Staff Picks: Top Ten Metal Albums Of 2011 (MetalRiotJD)

Posted by JDKleinhans on Tuesday, January 3, 2012 at 11:43 PM (PST)

A good new year to you, my fellow heathens, JD here with the list of the “Top Ten” metal albums of 2011.

I was hoping to have this list out before the end of 2011, but good lord… Not only was it a phenomenal year for metal but for music as a whole and narrowing it all down to a “Top Ten” list sucks! With that said, we’re here to keep it 100% Metal Riot.

Seeing how you heathens enjoy commenting on our picks for our Cover Art contests, I am thoroughly looking forward to the shredding I’m sure to receive for my “Top Ten” picks. So, take a wander through THE LIST and please, leave a comment.
