There's a pretty huge difference between that and straight up Satan worship.

Ghost is even less serious than Marilyn Manson. That being said I still don't see the public eating up a retro-rock act with satanic imagery.

A whole lot of this. Not to mention the fact that Antichrist Superstar was just a metaphor. Ghost definitely know how the public perceives them, and they clearly like to have fun with it. I'd be willing to bet that none of them even believe Satan exists.

I know they don't, but most people wouldn't care. I know a few people who won't listen to Ghost because the Satanic lyrics.

That's really intersting. When I saw them at the MastOpeth show, I was next to some guy who treated the whole thing as if it were a true black mass. Even after I told him it was a tongue-in-cheek routine, he didn't believe me. On the other side of me was a 22 year old woman who looked terrified the whole time. It's kind of fascinating to see how people react to Ghost.

Me too.

I have to say it has been since the Manson days since I have seen fans undecided on how to accept a bands image. Its not near the level of publicity Manson was at right when Antichrist Superstar was released but its not exactly too far behind that level of publicity either. Ghost's retro late 70's/early 80's hard rock sound is nothing new but there has not been any similar sounding bands at the level of popularity Ghost has acheived in decades. Its makes Ghost's sound refreshing when compared to other known metal, hard rock or core bands. It would not be a big surprise to see Ghost's popularity explode if their new album is good. I could see them reaching the level of popularity as a band like Anthrax, Testament, etc is at this time due to the push their new label is giving them.

I'm not crazy about the baby. What is that on it? A mask?

At first I took it to be a baby Jesus. Now that I look closer, you're right, it's a bit odd. Still, the color scheme is quite cool.
