Sweden's Ghost B.C. today premiered part one of a new documentary web series entitled 'Papaganda' on Vice's Noisey.Com. 'Papaganda' explores the papal lineage, the reign of Papa Emeritus II, and the future of the Ghost dynasty.The series was directed by Greg Olliver, who co-directed & produced 2010's 'Lemmy', and a soon-to-be-released psychological thriller/horror, 'Devoured'.

"You can't point a camera at Ghost without every frame of footage looking like heavy-metal gold." said Olliver.  "To work with a band that's on a fast rise to fame and has a mysterious story which is currently unraveling requires an entirely different approach.  Add in the anonymity of the group and the look that they have... and you suddenly have a whole lot to chew on as a director.  The only downside is that I felt a bit silly on stage filming NOT wearing a robe and black mask."  

"Greg has the perfect mix of story-telling acumen, musical taste and a fondness for the macabre... it made him the ideal choice to tell the story of Ghost." said Adam Farrell, creative director of the band's label, Loma Vista.


Filming for the series and planned feature-length documentary began on the summer festival circuit and continues through the year. It is being produced through Greg Olliver's NYC based production company, Secret Weapon Films.


Ghost B.C. released their second psalm INFESTISSUMAM on April 16th via Loma Vista Recordings. The 10-song offering was produced by Grammy® Award winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains) in Nashville, TN and debuted today at #1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart. SPIN called the album, "one of the most anticipated heavy metal albums of 2013."
