After nearly a year of working out the logistics, Tobias Forge of Ghost and Lou Brutus sat down for an hour long interview in New York City in early-December.
“Tobias and I have spoken in person on many occasions,” said Brutus. “However, it’s always been around the hustle and bustle of a concert tour. This was the first chance we’ve had to sit together in comfortable quiet for a long form interview. I believe he’s currently one of the most creative and interesting people in music so I’m ecstatic to have had this happen. It’s probably no surprise I picked the band’s ‘Prequelle’ as my top album for 2018.”
Tobias and Brutus made special trips to NYC to make this happen. The conversation was both filmed and recorded at the hardDrive Radio Studios in Manhattan. You can see much of it via YouTube here, here, and here. You can also read about it here on Blabbermouth.
Both gentlemen returned to the area a couple weeks later for the closing night of “A Pale Tour Called Death” at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. After receiving a blessing from Cardinal Copia backstage, Lou hit the photo pit to capture images of the show that you can see on his social media accounts.
