We wish to inform you. Last night’s only Ghost show for 2020 in Mexico proved to be one that the fans in attendance will never ever forget. Not only was it an astounding display of music for the final night of touring for the “Prequelle” album, but they also witnessed the appointment of Cardinal Copia to be the bands newest Papa as Emeritus IV made his debut appearance. Please enjoy this fan filmed video of the happening and I will follow with more by me after the clip.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: There is a lot to absorb here from the clip and I was so glad that this fan was not only close to the action but also had a decent charge on their mobile device. Now according to what I’ve read online about this show, just before this clip begins his Unholiness Papa Nihil aka Papa Emeritus 0 fell down and died onstage just after his saxophone solo. As many diehard fans know, Nihil was the sire of all three of the previous Papas and with his passing the bloodline ends. We then see the Cardinal Copia surrounded by the Sisters Of Sin who adorn him in the proper garments of his station and appointment to Papa Emeritus IV. Once revealed he takes to the microphone and continues the legend for the masses. This show in Mexico City was to be the only show for the band for the 2020 year so they will likely be working on some new music and presenting some sort of EP in the not too distant future. Over the years they’ve finished an album and then toured and then released an EP of covers. As more develops on this story, I’ll be sure to share it with you since the band is officially a phenomenon now. Historically speaking I’ve been following Ghost since the first album but never managed to see them play with Papa 1 or the Cardinal. Stay tuned, and congratulations to Papa Emeritus IV. We all look forward to serving you.
[MESSAGE FROM THE CLERGY] We wish to inform you Papa Nihil has been feeling particularly nostalgic as of late…Chapter 8 is available now for your viewing pleasure.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: As a fan of history, I have to say that I really enjoyed this latest chapter because it gives the Flock a great look at some rare and truly vintage performance footage from times long ago when Papa Nihil was heralding the charge and the message. Dare I say that this was very “Groovy” and had lots and lots of soul (or is it souls????). You gotta also love the quasi-Beatles coif that Papa was sporting. Now the tune while approximately 50 years old has stood up across the sands of time and I am glad to find them considering a re-release for all of the newbies to their brand of sonic soul procurement. Could Papa 0 be considering a return to the stage with all of the original Nameless Ghouls? Let’s raise the interest by sharing this clip and rallying behind them by posting to social networks and speaking about it to the hapless passerby on the street. The Clergy summons, and I’d suggest you comply. Until next time.
[MESSAGE FROM THE CLERGY] We wish to inform you Ghost’s song “Faith” has a deliciously disturbing lyric video ready for viewing.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: It’s not common for me to post the lyric videos unless they are something interesting, and well, when it comes to the band Ghost, the word interesting comes part and parcel with anything that they do. The song “Faith” is a solid track and comes from their hit “Prequelle” album which features Cardinal Copia on vocals with the assorted and mysterious cast of players that make up The Nameless Ghouls. The video behind the lyrics is a brain surgery of some kind and as I am more squeamish than I’d care to admit I had to look away a few times. I’ve never been too good at stuff like that. As you members of the Flock are aware, Ghost continues to remain in the news of the day on websites such as this one as they’ve recently announced a European tour (seen HERE) and are set to embark on their North American dates which were outlined HERE. Closing up I wonder what you readers think about the latest lyric video, you can chime in down below as you enjoy it and determine which shows you are planning on attending. I’d suggest that you bring the kids along with you because perhaps in the future they’ll do stuff like these talented high school choir members did in this Video Post. Until next time, which will be soon since its way early in the morning.
