has posted what seems to be strong evidence that Tobias Forge
is in fact Ghost
frontman Papa Emeritus
The theory that Forge is the man behind Papa is not a new one, but the latest photo posted by Darski
seems like a definite indicator that it was a legitimate claim all along.
So specifically, Nergal checked in from FortaRock
festival, an event at which both Behemoth and Ghost performed, sharing an Instagram
photo of himself and Tobias, along with a caption "If you have ghosts... U have everything;)"
Of course, "If You Have Ghost
" is a clear reference to Ghost's Roky Erickson
cover and title track of their latest cover EP
."What we're trying to do, it's very hard to maintain,"
one of the Nameless Ghouls
told Full Metal Jackie
back in 2012. "If the actual goal was to not be known, we try to maintain that, but in the long run, we can't really expect that to be something everlasting. Most of our fans are actually quite keen on not knowing, which works to our favor, but I think there is a difference between people knowing who is behind the mask or being unmasked."
So without further ado, the nearly-definite evidence of Papa's true identity (and a major spoiler for some) awaits below.
