A nameless ghoul from Ghost
took some time to discuss the band's infamous anonymity, revealing just how hard it is to maintain it.
During a chat on Full Metal Jackie
radio show, the ghoul also pointed out that the group members "aren't really from big bands as people tend to believe."
"I think what were doing with our anonymity is very hard to maintain because it makes our lives miserable to some extent,"
he said (via Loudwire
). "What we're working towards with everything else in terms of we want to put forth a grander show and in order to do so we need to reach a lot more people. Since we have been at the mercy of the good will of people liking the band for so long I think the further we reach above the radar, people that aren't into the band will be more prominent."
The ghoul continued, "For anybody that wishes to just f--k the band over it's very easy to do so, so I think it's just a matter of time before someone will go, 'Oh so youre anonymous, right?' and then they just take a photo and 'Here they are, here you go.'
"I think as long as we don't screw with our music or our performances and how we like to present the band on a live basis - having an image and being covered up onstage is not the same thing as being anonymous, those are two different things but they go hand in hand in our case."
The latest Ghost record, "Infestissumam
," dropped back in April as the group's sophomore release. Apart from topping the Swedish album chart, it also managed to peak at No. 28 on the US Billboard 200 chart.
