True. I saw Ghost at a festival this past June and they were great - I disagree with whatever ravenheart has to say about their live performances. Gwar were pretty fun live as well, but I'd never listen to them on CD. Nevertheless, Ghost's costumes are still a gimmick whether they make good music or not. The image of the Priest (frontman) is probably burned in everyone's mind, when you think of Ghost, you think of the Priest's costume and badass facepaint.
