Ghost: Settlement Over Legal Dispute Considered

Ghost vocalist Papa Emeritus (aka Tobias Forge) and four former members of the group look to be reaching a possible settlement. Their legal representatives were due to meet in Linkoping, Sweden court yesterday, to begin to discuss the possibility of resolving their legal dispute.

Aforementioned dispute was brought against Tobias Forge by four ex-musicians from the outfit —Simon Söderberg (Alpha), Mauro Rubino (Air), Henrik Palm (Ether) and Martin Hjertstedt (Earth)— and saw them seeking to get their hands on the band’s accounting from 2011 to the end of 2016. The four claim they were underpaid for their work with the band and also claim a partnership was in place to distribute proceeds from the band.

Tobias Forge himself previously disputed all claims and the existence of such a partnership. He also went on to allege that the above musicians were essentially "musicians for hire" with himself being the mainman of the band.

Ghost Guitarist Steps Forward About Lawsuit

Recently it was reveled that several Nameless Ghouls from the past lineup of Ghost are suing front man Papa Emeritus (Tobias Forge). Now one of those Ghouls has unmasked himself and several others as well. Former Ghost guitarist Simon Söderberg issued this statement via Facebook:

"As of yesterday we, four signatories from the band Ghost, have filed a lawsuit with the Linköping District Court. We are suing Tobias Forge (”Papa Emeritus”) – the band’s lead singer who has also been responsible for the finances of the band since its founding.

"As of the filing of this lawsuit we are requesting that the court, under penalty, oblige Tobias Forge to declare the incomes as well as expenses of the band concerning the years between 2011 and 2016.

"Throughout all the years we have been on tour with Ghost (between 2011-2016 some of us have performed something like 500 shows with the band) and throughout the band’s album recordings, we have neither been allowed to share in the profits of the band, nor have we seen any of the incomes accounted for.

"The only thing we have received have been minimal advance payments to allow the band to keep going. This despite the fact that we had an agreement that any profits should be shared fairly between the members of the band.

"When we have attempted to raise the issue of the band’s finances with Tobias Forge his sole response has been that there are so far no profits to be share, but that everyone will be generously compensated once the band turns a profit.

"The reason that this lawsuit is now being filed is a contract dispute that has escalated during the previous year (2016). Over the last year we have received multiple proposed contracts from Tobias Forge in which he seeks to redefine his role in the band.

"Since the conception of Ghost our common understanding and agreement has been that we are a band on equal terms, but that Tobias will act as band leader and manage the band’s finances through his own companies. More...

Former Ghouls Suing Papa Emeritus

Update: former guitarist Simon Söderberg has now issued a statement about the reasons behind the lawsuit and which Ghouls are involved.

After winning both U.S. and Swedish Grammy awards, sadly not all is well within the Ghost camp.

According to a story posted on Swedish site Corren.se, several former Nameless Ghouls are now suing Papa Emeritus of Ghost.

An excerpt from the article (translated to English so a bit is lost) reads as follows:

"Leader of the rock band Ghost of Linkoping sued by four of the band members. He is accused of having managed the stores around Ghost completely without insight from someone else in the band. It appears from a lawsuit Linköping District Court.

" Behind the mood is four musicians in the world famous, acclaimed and secret hard rock group Ghost. According to the lawsuit claims the Quartet (the partners) to:

* Court states that partnership exists between the five musicians
* Jointly conducts the music group Ghost
* Partnership agreement prescribes that the band leader to carry out the management of the company's operations.

"The four musicians behind the application also demand that the court should require the bandleader under penalty of SEK 200 000, or the amount that the court considers reasonable, the company reported revenues and expenses for the financial years 2011 to 2016 and that he also recognizes the company's assets at December 31, 2016. The reason for the lawsuit is missing wages and allowances for several years."

According to the full article, relations between the Ghouls and Papa Emeritus soured over the years, with complaints of missing payments and un-signable contracts that put the musicians into untenable positions. It's unclear just which of the Ghouls are involved in the lawsuit and what their real identities are at the moment.

Papa Emeritus has declined to comment on the lawsuit thus far, but a statement is expected to be forthcoming at some point.

"The Devil's Candy" - The Most Metal Movie Of 2017

Metal fans who dig horror movies take note: this is seriously the most metal movie you are going to see this year. Although originally released in 2015, "The Devil's Candy" wasn't available in America until yesterday and is out now via all the various VOD platforms.

From the same director as the utterly demented (in a very good way) "The Loved Ones," this follow-up flick from Sean Byrne features a metalhead dad and daughter caught in a very bad situation when the family buys a house with a nefarious past.

Heavy metal is essentially its own character in the film, and you'll see all kinds of nods to bands from Sunn O))) to Isis and of course the more well known like Metallica and Ghost.
