Ghost’s mastermind, Swedish rocker Tobias Forge trades in his papal regalia for a new persona on a darkly comic album that is lots of fun despite its flaws. “Prequelle” is the fourth studio album by Ghost and delves into the plague, apocalypse, and dark ages. It was released on June 1, 2018 and produced by Tom Dalgety and is starting to get a strong following in the metal world. The anonymity of the musicians in Ghost always seemed so important to the overall concept of the band. The album’s first single “Rats” peaked at number one for seven weeks on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart. Available formats include CD, LP, Digital and Streaming via Loma Vista Recordings.
