(Metal Hammer) Metal purists think Ghost are "too funny" to take seriously, according to one of the band's Nameless Ghouls. But he explains that in medieval times, humor and laughter were believed by some to be the work of the devil - and hints they also use these tools to "screw" with people.

The Nameless Ghoul tells Live Nation: "A couple of record pressing plants didn't want to print our previous record. it was not the upside-down cross or anything, it was a vagina. They just couldn't stand to look at that - that was just too downright blasphemous.

"I do think to a certain degree that we are misunderstood. We started off doing this with the intention of becoming this small horror rock band. It was supposed to be entertaining.

"The more puritan sort of metal people think we're too funny, or too this or that. We want people to be happy." He adds: "We represent humor and happiness. It's quite commonly known that laughter, satire and humor - at least from a medieval point-of-view - was very much regarded as a craft of the devil.

"I've been listening to 'devil music' ever since I was a kid. For me it's so natural, but its rock'n'roll. The tool of the devil is to trick with you to screw with each other." Read more here.
