Photos: Ghost holds mass at the Paramount Theatre

Grammy Award-winning metal band Ghost brought their dark mass to the Paramount Theatre Wednesday night. The Swedish six piece are touring on their latest record, Popestar, and brought French electro act Carpenter Brut, who sound like the the most badass ’80s action movie soundtrack you’ve ever heard. Everything about Ghost’s set was big and dramatic, feeling as much like a church service as it did a metal show. Papa Emeritus commanded the crowd from the moment he hit the stage in his full “Anti-Pope” regalia; it really felt like mass once the “Sisters of Sin” took the stage offering communion to fans. The dynamics of the stage show matched the music perfectly and, dare I say, they sounded even better than they do on record.


  1. The photo quality in the last 7 months has gone down. I used to see good work but this is simply trash. I thought your publication actually cared about art. You need hire real photographers.
