Ghost B.C.

Thursday, April 18, Ogden Theatre, 888-929-7849.

Founded in 2008, Ghost B.C. created a bit of mystique for itself right from the start. The sextet is essentially anonymous in its elaborate costumes, with singer Papa Emeritus II decked out like a satanic pope, and his cardinals, The Ghouls With No Name, performing in uniform brown robes whose cowls obscure any identifying features. Yes, it's a gimmick to bring a sense of mystery and ritual to an art form that, these days, doesn't have nearly enough theater. The music, though, is far from gimmicky: Part progressive rock and part hard rock and metal, Ghost's sound could have come from any era of metal in the past forty years. On tour in support of 2013's Infestissumam, Ghost B.C. and its darkly humorous show is a must-see.
