Ghost B.C. – “Year Zero” Video (NSFW) (Stereogum Premiere)

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.
