Ghost is a heavy metal band formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 2008. In 2010 they released a demo, followed by the single "Elizabeth", and eventually their debut full length album Opus Eponymous. The album has received mostly positive reviews, and has since increased their popularity significantly.
Ghost are easily recognizable due to their eccentric on-stage presence (five of the group's six members don dark hooded robes, while the vocalist appears in skull makeup and a cardinal outfit), heavily satanic-based lyrics, and highly secretive nature of their identities, referred to as "Nameless Ghouls".
On June 11, 2011, the band played at the annual Download Festival in the United Kingdom on the Pepsi Max Stage.
