Ghost branded ‘dull’ by their cult leader

Ghost are described as “dull” by their cult leader Sister Imperator in the latest teaser video for their Popestar EP.

She appeared in a clip last month as the band threw away their clutch of music industry awards after she told them: “We don’t need their approval – the truth of our work is not measuring by nods from the establishment.”

In the latest video, entitled The Summoning VI: The Proceedings Intensify, Sister Imperator says: “You have sat for insipid interviews, answering insipid questions, afraid to reveal your true undertaking.

“Your masks are the visage of the gods – and you mock them with your senseless orgies and trysts. Even your depravities are dull!”

Popestar was released last month. One of the band’s Nameless Ghouls recently said the full-length follow-up to 2015’s Meliora would be recorded in the early months of 2017 and released a few months later. Ghost are currently touring North America.

Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
