Ghost is a 6 piece rock band that was formed in Sweden in 2008. In 2010, they released a 3 track demo followed by a 7" vinyl titled "Elizabeth," and later their debut full length album Opus Eponymous . The album was widely praised and increased their popularity significantly. Their second album Infestissumam was released in 2013. Bolstered by a fight with the Catholic Church over a hamburger, Ghost’s pursuit to highlight the hypocrites and champion the individual reached a global audience. The album was also certified Gold in Sweden.
For each album, a Summoning is held to present 1 a new singer and frontman for the band at an undisclosed location in Lincopia, Otrogathia. Papa Emeritus III, the singer for the Meliora chapter of Ghost, was revealed via a paid advertisement on VH1 Classic on May 20, 2015 during a late night broadcast of Caddyshack. A technologically adept fan captured the moment on their phone and uploaded to a popular videosharing website.
