One of the nameless ghouls from Swedish occult rockers GHOST is featured in Amoeba Music‘s “What’s In My Bag?” segment in which he talks about some of the records and books he is into. In the clip below, he can be seen shopping at Amoeba in Hollywood, where he picks up music by CANDLEMASS and KISS, among others.
As previously reported, GHOST will perform on the October 30 episode of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert”. The show airs at 11:35 p.m. EST / 10:35 p.m. CST on CBS.
GHOST‘s third album, “Meliora”, entered The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 8 with first-week sales of just over 29,000 units — nearly all from pure album sales. The set follows the No. 28-peaking “Infestissumam”, which was released in 2013 and has sold almost 70,000 copes in the U.S. to date.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
“Meliora” was released on August 21 via Loma Vista Recordings. The CD was helmed by Klas Åhlund, a prolific songwriter, producer and guitarist who is also a member of the Swedish rock band TEDDYBEARS, and was mixed by Andy Wallace (SLAYER, NIRVANA, SEPULTURA, LINKIN PARK, GUNS N’ ROSES).
