Get Revolver's new Ghost special collector's issue, plus exclusive colored vinyl variants and merch, at our shop.

Swedish Satanic-rock troupe Ghost have come a long, long way since their cult 2010 debut, Opus Eponymous, to their latest LP, Impera, Revolver's top album of 2022.

One of the many things that have helped buoyed mastermind Tobias Forge and Co. to their current chart-topping, arena-headlining, award-winning success is a host of famous fans, including Dave Grohl, James Hetfield and Duff McKagan. Count among this murderers' row M. Shadows.

We asked the Avenged Sevenfold vocalist to pick his favorite Ghost song — see his selection below.


Something about the rawness and production of their debut, Opus Eponymous, really drew me in. "Elizabeth" is one of my favorite choruses of all time, juxtaposed with dark riffs and groove.
