Sweden Rock FestivalThe most secretive band in Sweden – GHOST confirmed for Sweden Rock Festival 2011!

GHOST have not, and will not, disclose the names of their members. This knowledge would only distract the public from what is really important – the fact that GHOST was created to accompany the end of the world.

Using music brought to them by a non-worldly entity of demonical origin, according to the band. Their debut “Opus Eponymous” overflows with both diabolical and seductive sounds reminiscent of both the 70s’ Black Widow and Coven, the 80s’ Angel Witch, Demon and Mercyful Fate, and the present time’s The Devil’s Blood. A fascinating sound, and Ghost on stage at SRF promises to be a fascinating experience.
