MUSIC—The anonymous Swedes who make up Ghost BC (formerly just plain Ghost) shroud themselves in robes and masks befitting a satanic liturgy, but despite all their evil iconography, their hard rock isn't as scary as all that. Skirting just shy of metal, these nameless ghouls set the mood with soaring guitars, churchlike organs, and arena-sized melodies. NL
