Former Ghost Members Plan To Appeal Their Case In Swedish Court

The four former members of Ghost that had their case against Tobias Forge dismissed this week claim they will appeal. Forge was sued by the four ex-members in April 2017. They accused the singer of cheating them out of their rightful share of the profits from the band’s album releases and world tours. Simon Söderberg (Alpha), Mauro Rubino (Air), Henrik Palm (Ether) and Martin Hjertstedt (Earth) have three weeks to appeal the ruling, and their attorney, Michael Berg, told SVT earlier today that they intend to seek a reversal. The trial in Linköping District Court lasted for six days, and on Wednesday (October 17), a 108-page decision was released dismissing the case. The four former GHOST members were also ordered to pay Forge’s legal fees, which could amount to approximately over $145,000. Söderberg, Rubino, Palm and Hjertstedt have reportedly spent 2.9 million kronor (approximately $320,000) in legal fees on the case so far. Since the members were dismissed from the band in 2016, Ghost has released the international smash hits Square Hammer single and the album Prequelle (Spinefarm).

Oh, and of course, the now almost delightfully traditional war cries of “they’re shit”, and “they’re not metal!!” Continue reading
