    About Ghost B.C.

    As the tides change and the flames mount, Papa Emeritus II and the Group of Nameless Ghouls
    reflect upon man's fall and the Antichrist's rise.

    In the year of 13, the second phase of Papa Emeritus II and the Group of Nameless Ghouls
    begins with the release of the sophomore psalm INFESTISSUMAM. Papa Emeritus II succeeded
    Papa Emeritus at the conclusion of phase one in the year of 12, and the Nameless Ghouls joined
    him under the unholy church's current moniker Ghost B.C.—the "B.C." is silent when spoken
    aloud, please remember that. The name is also phonetically written [goʊst]. Their rituals demand
    reverence and praise, fortified through a delivery of sweetly satanic melodies, snaking distorted
    riffs, and vaudevillian keyboards.
    The world's introduction to the troupe, the year of 10's Opus Eponymous, closed with "Genesis",
    a foretelling of the Antichrist's coming. He is here now on INFESTISSUMAM and shall be treated
    accordingly.
    Here are the details. This collection was captured to tape in Christian epicenter Nashville, TN with
    the help of producer Nick Raskulinecz. It will now be disseminated through newly formed Loma
    Vista Recordings and Republic Records.

    As for the story itself, this is what you should be prepared to hear and see.
    "INFESTISSUMAM"—Latin for "The greatest threat"—refers to the Antichrist as being the biggest
    danger to the Christian world, and ironically a choir conducted by Papa Emeritus II heralds His
    onset.

    "PER ASPERA AD INFERI", translated to "Through Hardship to Hell", slyly dissects the
    overblown ambitions of youth who can't come to terms with their own insignificance. All of their
    sanctimonious gloating forges a pact with the Devil. This hubris is the most tragic of flaws.
    "SECULAR HAZE" refers to the mist that sweeps over the earth as His power slowly takes hold.
    "JIGOLO HAR MEGIDDO" talks of the Antichrist moving among us in the form of an attractive
    young man. Driven by lust, females flock to him and, after "the act," dub him the Antichrist. The
    first half ends with "GHULEH/ZOMBIE QUEEN" a dirge ballad that mourns the passing of days
    gone by, wrongly yearning for the past.

    "YEAR ZERO" laughs at the reaction of small individuals to His arrival as its bellowing bombast
    pays homage to the horned subterranean god. "BODY AND BLOOD" deals with the cannibalistic
    ideal of communion, while "IDOLATRINE" shines light on the church's preoccupation with
    attracting sheep. "DEPTH OF SATAN'S EYES" overturns the notion that intellectualism and freethinking
    are a work of the Devil and, in fact, man's greatest tools. Everything leads up to
    "MONSTRANCE CLOCK". It's a ritualistic event involving a ministry coming together to witness
    the consummation and birth of the Antichrist. Sexually charged and demonically conveyed,
    procreation stands regarded as one of the most utterly evil works of Satan. Ironically, it's the
    source of life.

    Speaking of life, Papa Emeritus II and the Group of Nameles Ghouls invite all to witness their
    rituals on stage. The front row remains continually comprised of females willing to do anything for
    Papa Emeritus II as a dramaturgical exposition of the Antichrist's ascent unfolds on stage. Rituals
    have taken place in front of sold out audiences across the world and at festivals such as
    Download, Orion Music + More, Coachella, and more. The congregation has grown to include
    such high-profile members as James Hetfield of Metallica, Philip Anselmo of Down and Pantera,
    Fenriz of Darkthrone who has the honor of being the first public supporter, and Dave Grohl of Foo
    Fighters and Nirvana, who participated in the recorded ritual on a cover of ABBA's "I'm a
    Marionette".

    The age of INFESTISSUMAM is formally underway. Allow Papa Emeritus II and the Group of
    Nameless Ghouls to open your mind or simply play witness.
    Either way, you're under their spell now.
