Alternative Press recently connected with Ghost in issue #405 to talk about the band's trajectory and new album Impera.
Instead of lamenting the loss of hard rock's dominance on culture, Tobias Forge and his bandmates have stayed true to themselves and the decisions that have brought them success. Hard rock's not on the way out, and neither are they.
“We’re not a nostalgia band,” Forge says. “I refuse to be there yet. Maybe one day, when whatever I put out won’t matter, which is fine and natural. But I feel like this [album] is still relevant in the context of Ghost — it adds another 20% to peoples’ impression of the band. It’s adding to the bigger picture. That’s not talking about the commercial appeal of the record because I don’t know that; I just know that the vibe around the album is vibrating, and people are very fucking excited.”
