Ghost: The Popestar Tour/Zombi

When: Wed., Sept. 21, 8 p.m. 2016

st isn’t your typical Swedish death metal band. For each album, a “summoning” is held at an undisclosed location in Lincopia, Otrogathia, and the group of anonymous Swedish musicians tweaks the lineup and decides what direction it will take things. For its latest album, Meliora, the band anointed Papa Emeritus III to assume lead vocal duties. The lead single, "Cirice," even won the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance. Meliora is the Latin word for "better" (and it also means "the eternal pursuit for something better"). As a result, the songs on Meliora strike a balance between metal and prog and feature the mellow, more nuanced side of the band’s music. (Niesel)
