Ghost Frontman Unmasked by Behemoth's Nergal
Behemoth frontman Nergal 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.
