Get Revolver's new Ghost special collector's issue, plus exclusive colored vinyl variants and merch, at our shop.
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 Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford.
We asked the Metal God himself to pick his favorite Ghost song — see his selection below.
Ghost are an important band on a variety of levels. Rock & roll — I use that term loosely in this context — needs a band like Ghost to refocus and re-energize us. Tobias meticulously created and sought out, firstly, the strength of Ghost musically, and secondly, the crucial visual elements, and both have drawn us into his world of Emeritus mystery and intrigue.
As a fan, I am choosing the song "Elizabeth" because of its valuable insight [into] the origins of Tobias' singular manner of composition, arrangements and textures, whereby one can sense enormous potential.
