2018 live release from the Swedish occult metal band. The album was recorded during the band's critically exalted Popestar tour during the summer of 2017 and documents Ghost's unforgettable live show in pursuit of becoming the world's next great arena band. Ceremony and Devotion was produced and mixed by Tom Dalgety and features fan favorites spanning the band's entire catalogue from Opus Eponymous (2010) to Infestissumam (2013) to Meliora (2015) to the Popestar EP (2016). Ghost's most recent studio album, Meliora, and it's accompanying EP Popestar, elevated the Swedish rock band into the pantheon of the greatest rock bands on earth and resulted in a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance. Meliora debuted at #1 at Independent Retail, #2 at Rock, and in the Top 10 on Billboard's Top 200 Album Chart, selling over a quarter million copies globally. Popestar debuted at the No. 1 position on Billboard's Top Rock Albums and Hard Rock Albums chart and produced an Active Rock chart topper with "Square Hammer". Along the way Ghost have racked up both widespread critical acclaim and adoration from a legion of fans across the globe in a genre stagnated by Nü metal for nearly two decades.
