There are two sides to every story. Many of us have been waiting to hear a response from Papa Emeritus (Tobias Forge) after the recent lawsuit between him and four former Nameless Ghouls, who are no longer nameless.

Ghost member says there have been ten lineup changes so far

Posted by on March 13, 2017

Did Behemoth’s Nergal leak Papa Emeritus II of Ghost’s real identity?

Posted by on July 3, 2014

A few years back, speculation began to circulate that Papa Emeritus (and his “replacement” Papa Emeritus II) was actually Tobias Forge. While Ghost has still kept the real identities a secret (at least from the public, that is), it looks like we can thank Adam “Nergal” Darski for essentially confirming the rumors behind Papa’s real […]
