Ghost To Release Limited Edition “Prequelle” Deluxe Box Set

Ghost will be releasing a deluxe box set edition of their latest album “Prequelle“ on September 27. The set, which is called “Prequelle Exalted,” will be limited to 5,000 copies and pre-orders can be found HERE.

Here’s all the contents:

  • Prequelle Limited Edition Transparent Orange with Black Smoke Colored Vinyl
  • 60-page arena tour photo book, hardbound and wrapped in black gator skin
  • Exclusive die-cut Prequelle artwork with a 12-page booklet featuring brand-new, mind-blowing illustrations
  • Four 12″ X 12″ live photo prints
  • Bonus 7″ with two Ghost rarities
  • Ghost 7″ vinyl adapter

A press release also provided more info on the books and artwork:

“For the arena tour hardbound photo book and the exquisite, suitable-for-framing 12″ X 12″ prints, Ryan Chang photographed Ghost on tour over the course of a year, documenting the band’s live performances throughout Europe, the UK, Canada, and the United States, including the Special Guest spots on Metallica European ‘WorldWired‘ Stadium tour this summer.

The 12-page booklet of new prints was created by Ghost‘s longtime visual collaborator Zbigniew M. Bielak, offering 10 stunning illustrations, each one a visual representation of the 10 songs on Prequelle.”

Furthermore, it is assumed that the two rarities included in the set will be “Kiss The Go-Goat” and “Mary On A Cross.“ A leaked product listing previously suggested that the tracks will also be available as a standalone 7” on September 27 as well.

Ghost’s Tobias Forge: “I Can Definitely See The Concept Of Doing More Of A Rock Opera In The Future”

During an interview with The Metal Voice, Tobias Forge was asked if Ghost would ever record a full-blown concept album. He responded by saying his previous albums have been “thematical” and “that the next record will be more thematical in the same vein as the previous ones.” However, he did add that he could “definitely see the concept of doing more of a rock opera in the future.”

Forge said the following:

“The records that I’ve done so far [have] been thematical — loose conceptual… litte bit of a framing… As of right now, I know that the next record will be more thematical in the same vein as the previous ones. I can definitely see the concept of doing more of a rock opera in the future… If I’d ever make a rock opera the way that I think we’re talking about here, it would probably — probably — not be necessarily a rock record; it would probably be more classical, more vocal and more traditionally the sort of stuff that you’d hear on a musical — not any musical, but more score-based, if that makes sense.”

He continued:

“For eons, there was this QUEEN musical in London, and I think it was called ‘We Will Rock You’ — that or ‘Mamma Mia!’ [musical based on the songs of ABBA] is based off of a huge catalog of already established music. And I don’t think that that would be what we would be going for. It would be probably something more like, ‘Here’s a completely different record written for this purpose.’ Having said that, I don’t feel necessarily that a rock record would be suitable for that. But I don’t know. We’re not there yet. Maybe in the future. We will see. We will see.”
