ABOUT GHOST B.C.
Hailing from Linköping, Sweden, Ghost B.C. formed in in 2008. They released their heralded debut album, Opus Eponymous, on October 18th, 2011. UK's Metal Hammer praised the album saying it was "an arcane occult feast”, while in the US Decibel Magazine said they "compel on pretty much every sensory level”, and the Village Voice proclaimed "Ghost is Swedish, heavy, and tasked with slicing your soul to bits – or at least your ears”. In 2011, Ghost B.C. performed at the annual Download Festival in the United Kingdom. The band's fan-base began to swell, and not long after added some of hard rock's finest to this group. Additionally that year, Ghost B.C. took part in the ‘Defenders Of The Faith III’ tour with Trivium, In Flames & Rise To Remain. In early 2012, Ghost B.C. embarked on their first tour of the United States, and later that year they shared the stage with Mastodon and Opeth on their ‘Heritage Hunter Tour’ in North America. That summer, the band was invited by Metallica's James Hetfield to perform on the main-stage of Metallica's first annual ‘Orion Music + More’ festival.
