That was my first thought when I found out that Ghost are set to appear alongside Trivium, In Flames and Rise To Remain in the UK this coming winter as part of the Defenders Of The Faith package. Now I like Ghost and while I can think of bands more deserving of the hype, I’m glad they’re making their way up the ranks by not just preaching to the converted.
However, I’m a little disappointed at the prospect of never being able to see them without having to sit through some performances by bands who just hold no interest for me (Trivium) or bands who are just plain awful (Rise To Remain). I can only hope that they reach a level of popularity where a headlining UK tour is viable…with support from Church Of Misery…because they’re awesome.
