Ghost’s Tobias Forge: “I can proudly say ABBA are one of my favorite bands of all time… I’ll always feel like I’m in the shadow of their legacy”

Over the last decade, no new metal band has taken the world by storm quite like Swedish occult rockers Ghost. The group – masterminded by core songwriter and founder Tobias Forge, who is backed by a revolving door of ‘Nameless Ghouls’ – have gone from performing at London’s 500-capacity Underworld to headlining at the O2 Arena.

Ghost’s debut album Opus Eponymousreleased in 2010 on cult stoner label Rise Above, won them fans far and wide for its devilishly melodic doom, drawing comparisons to Blue Öyster Cult and The Doors alongside heavier influences like Black Sabbat.
