Nergal talking about his collab with Tobias - how it happened & why TF used the name Mary Goore, from this month's Sweden Rock Magazine
How did you create Under The Spell together with Tobias Forge from Ghost?
I had the music ready when I went to Sweden. Even though I had booked studio time, it was uncertain to the very end whether Tobias would do it. He said that he had done some guest appearances in the past that he wasn't happy with, but if he could contribute something worthwhile to MATM he might be able to join in. When he came to the studio, he wanted me to sing and he wanted to produce. I said, "No. That's not the point. You must be in it." We went through the lyrics and realised that there was a lot that needed to be rewritten to suit the melody. We didn't rush anything, but stayed in all day, took long breaks, went out for lunch, and I couldn't be happier with the final result of 'Under the Spell'. Mary Goore, as he called himself, did a fantastic job.
Is there any reason why Tobias Forge uses the name Mary Goore even though in the song he doesn't sing the way he did when he called himself that in the death-metal band Repugnant?
Label politics. He isn’t allowed to use the name Papa Emeritus, but there was no way I was going to release the album without him, so Tobias suggested doing it as Mary Goore, since it's not associated with Ghost. But I don't give a shit. I don't care whether there's a Ghost sticker on the cover or not, I'm just happy that my friend did a brilliant job on my album.
Clémence guitar solo
So my guitar’s hard case is super beat up, like, falling apart at the edges, and I could just put some tape on it, but I’d just get a new one if I could find one cheap. I already have a soft one. But I don’t really know how much things like that cost. I thought I could find a really basic one for below $50, but I don’t see any. Is that not a thing, or am I just looking in the wrong places? It doesn’t need pockets or humidity control or a bunch of padding; this one is just a hard case out of like thin plywood, with fabric on the inside and a piece that’s a neck rest and like a single 1/4” sheet of padding on part of it. Is that really like a $100+ thing or are these places just rip-offs? Because this guitar and its case were only $50 second-hand.
I’m just looking for something that’s big enough for this 12-string, hard, has some kind of closure, and some kind of handle. Idk this guitar came in this case and it’s older than I am. I have a soft case but I’m kind of prone to banging things into other things and also I want a place to put my sticker collection (priorities).

okay megamix's story is sort of garbage but like, from what i remember it's at least the standard rhythm heaven writing (so pretty funny). even if it drags on waaaay too long-

I drew a love song. 🌉☺︎

the guitar that's ALSO under my bed, where it has lain, untouched in its case, for well over a year at this point & quite possibly longer:
