Ghost – “From The Pinnacle To The Pit” Video

Ghost, Swedish masters of theatrical metal silliness, just released their new album Meliora last month, and now they’ve followed their spectacular “Cirice” video with a new one for the album track “From The Pinnacle To The Pit.” For this one, director Zev Deans uses animation and what looks like manipulated silent-movie footage to tell a mythic origin story about Ghost frontman Papa Emeritus II. There aren’t many bands around these days who are this into maintaining their own mystique, and a video like this is a prime example of what they’ll do to keep it going. Watch it below.

Meliora is out now on Loma Vista Recordings.
