This Ghost is Swedish, heavy, and tasked with slicing your soul to bits–or at least your ears. The sextet brings black metal tenets to bear on monolithic melody, wears hoods, and saddles their debut with the decidedly goulish title Opus Eponymous. Yikes. This is Ghost’s US bow and their only scheduled stateside show besides Maryland Metal Fest. With Sabbath Assembly and Natur.
