GHOST - Serbia 22/06/2014 (my Maiden Europe 2014 backpacking to Serbia, France, & Hellfest 2014 PART 8)

"Rock Maintain", but lets not forget the sufferings in Gaza, Palestine.
Lets support them, in anyway we can, for example thru our local humanitarian supports and charities link-up or just thru our prayers and in our thoughts.
I enjoy the songs and the eye-catching gimmicks of the Sweden band Ghost
When they cover a Depeche Mode song, the more I like them LOL!!, 
though Ghost with all their metal music magazines front-covers popularity, can never touch the evil and darkness of DEPECHE MODE.

Ghost lyrically they tend to be straightforward Satanic, their latest cover EP release is produced by Foo Fighter’s Dave Grohl. To make it more complicated, they tend to remind me of Jim Morrison’s The Doors. They really got their whole package well-done.

So when Ghost (also known as Ghost BC for USA market) were slotted to open for Iron Maiden in Kalamegdan Belgrade Serbia on 17th June 2014, it means I have to be early for the event that evening, as it gives me a chance to checkout Ghost live though I envy other countries on the History Maiden England 2014 Tour which got ANTHRAX warming up for Maiden instead.

Papa Emeritus II ( same person as always but its a new presentation of this character so thats why we have a 'II" in his name, always with a skull make up and a Pope robe and dressing style.

The Nameless Ghouls total number of FIVE. Two guitars, one bassist, keyboards and drums. I was checking out their soundcheck and stage preparations and trying to speculate if it is their crew members who are really the Ghost Nameless Ghouls themselves. I guess not.

They open with Year Zero. As usual I tend to record the very starting of a band for a minute or two for my own memories before I soak myself into the atmosphere, but Year Zero is a nice song so I record the whole song and upload it...

So here is how Ghost enters the stage, and opening song of Year Zero.

Its worth it for me to come early to catch Ghost before Maiden plays their show later.

Just to give the idea, this is the lyrics of Year Zero..
 Belial, Behemoth, Beelzebub, Asmodeus, Satanas, Lucifer
Belial, Behemoth, Beelzebub, Asmodeus, Satanas, Lucifer

Since dawn of time the fate of man is that of lice
Equal as parasites and moving without eyes
A day of reckoning when penance is to burn
Count down together now and say the words that you will learn

Hail Satan, Archangelo
Hail Satan, Welcome year zero
Hail Satan, Archangelo
Hail Satan, Welcome year zero

Belial, Behemoth, Beelzebub, Asmodeus, Satanas, Lucifer

Crestfallen kings and queens comforting in their faith 
Unbeknownst to them is the presence of the wraith 
Since fate of man is equal to the fate of lice 
As new dawn rises you shalt recognize now behold the Lord Of Flies 

Hail Satan, Archangelo
Hail Satan, Welcome year zero
Hail Satan, Archangelo
Hail Satan, Welcome year zero
Hail Satan

Love how the Iron Maiden light blue and whte snowy and icebergs stage ramps are already in place for showtime!!! and once the Ghost huge backdrop and equipments were removed....

Ghost plays not long, about 30-40 minutes, but I had a lot of fun. You can’t avoid being happy with songs like “If You Have Ghost” LOL!!
They did play this song that evening... and it sounds so very POP! live. This band is like ABBA or Roxette, similar Swedish bands, and very accesible to all ages and music lovers LOL!!!
