Everyone’s favourite Swedish occultists Ghost have just released a new video for Kiss The Go-Goat.
Posting on the clip social media, Ghost say: “We wish to inform you Papa Nihil has been feeling particularly nostalgic as of late…”
In the video, Papa Nihil is seen reminiscing and questioning why everyone is now so obsessed with Cardinal Copia, before we’re transported back to the late ’60s for the official video.
We see a young Papa with trendy moptop performing in a studio in very ’60s black and white music video, filmed in 4:3 for good measure, with dancers and a rather Satanic looking goat.

Next thing you know, we’re transported to the Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles, watching Ghost open for English psych-rockers Spooky Tooth and blues-folkman Terry Reid (spelled incorrectly). As you’d expect from a young Papa Nihil, he attracts a lot of attention from the women in attendance, as he sings not so subtly about Lucifer and having sex.
As we’re transported back to present day, Papa Nihil suggests reissuing their 7 inches of Satanic Panic disc to mark its 50th anniversary. Is this a real sign of things to come from Ghost? Will a physical copy of Kiss The Go-Goat see the light of day soon?
