The new album from Ghost is a sort-of concept album about death and doom, that’s according to frontman Tobias Forge.
Forge, who performs as papa says , “It’s a themed album around medieval times, but it’s definitely clinging onto a lot of very current things. The black death is a great example of a turning point for a whole civilization. Complete villages were annihilated. Most people knew very little, so all of it was God or the Devil — and about their faith being questioned: Why are we being stricken down. It must be because of our not fearing God enough and all this superstitious BS.”
