Comic concert review: Ghost’s bloated, bewitching black mass

The Swedish metal band descended on the Sony Centre, and we turned it into a comic


GHOST at Sony Centre, Saturday, December 8. Rating: NNN


Between their costumes, elaborate stage design, shifting personas and endless Satanic imagery, Ghost are one of metal’s most cartoonish bands. So when we found out the Swedish band were rolling through the Sony Centre on their A Pale Tour Named Death, we knew we had to send Eric Kostiuk Williams, NOW’s resident comic concert reviewer. As it turns out, he caught them in a period of transition.
