Their sound is reminiscent of early melodic metal, like Black Sabbath and Mercyful Fate, and their look is straight from the grave--the lead singer, Papa Emeritus, wears skull make-up and a Cardinal's robes, and the other band members, the Nameless Ghouls, wear hooded monk-like robes. Their lyrics are overtly Satanic, but the band makes a point to say that it's all tongue-in-cheek and that their mission is to put on a show. "We want people to go into the experience the same way that you would lose yourself in a horror movie for an hour or two," says one Ghoul. They've even covered an ABBA song! That's the kind of musical versatility I can appreciate.
Here's a touching power ballad about a zombie queen. Black light guides you, ghuleh!
