GHOST: Fan-Filmed Footage Of FORTAROCK Performance

Fan-filmed video footage of Swedish occult rockers GHOST performing on May 31 at the FortaRock festival in Goffertpark, Nijmegen, The Netherlands can be seen below.

A Nameless Ghoul from GHOST told Kaaos TV on May 28 about the band's plans for a new studio album: "The songs are done, demo-wise. We know what it's going to sound like, what it's gonna look like, what it's gonna feel like, but we are yet to record it. We'll do that in the fall, probably in October or November sometime. So as for now, we've got most of the work done as far as the songs go. And the whole visual idea of the album…"

Regarding the musical direction of the new GHOST material, he said: "As much as we took a different step from the first album to the second, we'll do the same now. There's a bit of everything in there. We are inspired from so many different things, so it's a blend of everything we want to sound like and what we like. But it's taking it one step further than we already did, so…. It's not necessarily… I wouldn't say it will be a copy of the two previous albums. We try to evolve all the time. Otherwise we wouldn't have fun, and hence there's no reason doing it. It's about having fun."

GHOST was honored in the "Best Hard Rock/Metal" category at the Swedish Grammis awards (Swedish Grammy equivalent), which was held on February 19 at Cirkus in Stockholm. The bands were all nominated for their most recent releases, all of which came out during 2013. GHOST was also honored with the P3 Guld award (for "Infestissumam") from Swedish radio station P3 in the "Best Rock/Metal Album Of The Year" category. The winners were announced on January 18 during a live awards ceremony broadcast from the Scandinavium in Gothenburg, Sweden.

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".

GHOST was forced to modify its name in the U.S. to GHOST B.C. for "legal reasons."
