I am still a newbie when it comes to the music of the band GHOST, but so far, I’m loving what I’m hearing!
A few weeks back, as part of our bonus Halloween edition of the Shock Waves podcast, I played a little snippet from their latest EP release “Popestar,” the album opener “Square Hammer.” You can listen to that episode embedded below for your convenience.
Ever since, a lot of listeners have reached out to me making plenty of GHOST-related suggestions.
But my friend Dustin Sain went as far as to point out the many horror homages that the band has done over the years with their album covers, magazine spreads, T-shirts and merchandise. It’s actually quite astounding! So much so, that we’ve decided to collect them here, all in one spot for all of you to enjoy!
Among the art you’ll find below, a lot of it comes from David Brinley, who also has done original artwork for the band PURSON. You can find much more of his stuff over on his official website.
