Ghost B.C. - "Year Zero" video

The theatrical, absurdist Swedish metal band Ghost B.C., previously known as just plain Ghost, are the latest band to find international fame by scaring the hell out of parents and authority figures, dressing up as cult members and demon-priests and plying an infernally catchy form of craftsmanship. Last year, we posted their Dave Grohl-abetted cover of Abba’s “I’m A Marionette,” and now they’re getting ready to unleash the sophomore album Infestissumam upon the planet. Below, we’ve got the super-NSFW video for their song “Year Zero.” It’s gleefully Satanic silliness about a coven of witches who welcome a dark stranger into their midst. Nudity abounds.


Infestissumam is out 4/16 on Loma Vista.

  1. The devils power is the greatest one!!!!!!

  2. FYI they’re still technically called “Ghost.” The B.C. part is only used in North America.

  3. It’s always amusing to see how bad music can be. This was terrible. It’s embarrassing. It’s like HIM except worse.

    • Your either deaf or only listened to about 2 seconds of it, because you have no idea what your talking about.

    • ^ ^ Agreed with the last reply. HIM? I obviously can hear Mercyful Fate, In Solitude, King Diamond, Blue Oyster Cult, even snippets of the Beach Boys. HIM?!?! Ghost is a super talented post-NWOBHM style band that DELIVERS. Their Opus Eponymous record just very well may be the best hard rock album of the 2000′s. You don’t have to like it. But it most definitely is not bad or terrible. Go back to watching the MTV shows that introduced you to HIM. Your ignorance is what is embarrassing.

    • You’re stupid and DEAF! This band is what Metal needed to make it come alive again.I’m so sick of these type of band that pass off growling and screaming as singing guitarist who play like it’s their first day in beginners guitar class. Finally a band who’s members know how to play their instruments and a singer that tunes up before he hits the stage. This band is a straight forward no nonsense METAL band.

  4. Spanish people is not allowed to see the video.
    Funny xDD

  5. Cirith Ungol > Ghost

    That is all.

  6. This is horrible

  7. It’s blocked for south america? Ssscarae!

  8. This sucks so bad.

  9. People who live where I am are not allowed to watch this video ?? Can you BE more stupid ?
    I’ve seen GHOST last year and got autographs and guitar picks from them, so who cares what you think ….
    I’ll wait a few hours for the youtube !

  10. Ghost are SO good. I feel sorry for all the haters. They are so fun live, there is NO doubt their tongues are firmly in cheek, they make great, catchy hard rock done right. They clearly love Blue Oyster Cult and Mercyful Fate. And they dress as ghouls. What could be better?

  11. I cant see it because I live in Mexico :C

  12. Tongues may very well be firmly in cheek, but my fingers are in my ears. I just don’t get what is so good/different about this band.

  13. They will always be known as Ghost so fuck you.

  14. Ghost are a very talented band. Just because they choose to do what they respectively do doesn’t mean that you naysaying douche bags can try and discredit what they do. They are amazing

  15. The bald guy with the hat is the singer, and at the end – when the singer lifts his robe to show his dick (really unnecessary) – its a different guy’s body. You can see that the footage gets cut, its not the same take.

    • Hmmm……..are you Sherlock Holmes? Maybe Einstein? I can’t believe you put the two together. He put the two together everybody. Look a goddamned genius!

    • Yes, the singer is the bald guy (Papa Emeritus II). The wrinkles in his forehead match his costumed appearence later. I also agree with the dick not being his. You can see a seam in the film right when he lifts his robe, so the dick we see isn’t his. But I did originally agree with you on the dick thing being unnecessary, but then I began thinking about it, and found that it was also rather unnecessary for the women to be showing their tits (and it happens frequently in media, not only in this video). The theme is sexual objectification, and it’s only fair that men are being portrayed as being objectified just as the women are. This almost never happens.

      The band promotes the anti-Christ, and by extension, sexual freedom. So the showing of the dick is appropriate for their message in this video.

  16. This band is great. Can’t wait for the new album.

  17. Papa should’ve been the new Pope. He wuz robbed!

    • As funny as that is, the Facebook promotion for Papa being pope was supposed to be a joke, because you can’t have an active pope named “Emeritus” (Which translates to “One who has served his time”). However, interestingly enough, Pope Benedict is now called “Pope Emeritus”, because he is the “One who has served his time”. That was the thing that Ghost found funny.

  18. Same in Polang go to check on Youtobe.Here is the link :)
