Ghost B.C. Brings Together Heavy Metal and Dildos (Finally)

It's about time someone finally brought heavy metal and sex toys -- a match made in heaven -- together in one package. And Swedish heavy metallers Ghost (also known as Ghost B.C.) was just the band to do it.

Known for their eccentric on-stage presence -- five of the members (known as "Nameless Ghouls") wear hooded robes, while the lead singer dons a skull mask and cardinal outfit -- Ghost just put out its second album, Infestissumam, on April 10. Along with this release, the band also put out 250 limited-edition hardcore-fan collectibles dubbed "Phallos Mortuus" Ritual Box Sets.
