Ghost Bring The Word Of Impera Live

At Giant Center in Hershey, PA, the band Ghost brought forth the good word of Impera, the band’s upcoming album due March, 11th, 2022. With the changes that have gone on since Ghost’s last tour before the pandemic and the christening of a new Papa, Ghost have created a new ritual with newly designed fashion for the Nameless Ghouls.

Hearing new songs from the upcoming album such as “Hunter’s Moon”, “Call Me Little Sunshine”, and the yet to be released “Kaisarion”, this performance felt special. There was a sense that Ghost were ready to take over the heavy music world again and gain new fans (Worshipers? Cultists? Ghouls?). With the little we know about Impera, it appears that it’s going to have Ghost leading fans into another bold direction.

One of the best things about Ghost is how they are able to make albums sound different as well as compelling and unique. Papa and the Ghouls are making music that stands out as something unique. The show in Hershey, PA was captivating from the opening of a new song all the way through “Mummy Dust” where the crowd was show with Ghost currency and gold glitter. Whether it was headbanging hard to “From The Pinnacle To The Pit” or having the crowd dance to “Dance Macabre”, the crowd of thousands (many of which came dressed up), loved this entire night.
