Formed in 1983, American heavy metal band Megadeth legendary bassist David Ellefson has just spoke with TMPlay and revealed why he likes Swedish rock band Ghost led by Tobias Forge.

You can read what David Ellefson exactly said about Ghost below.

“The band I’ve kind of had a real affinity for in the last couple of years is Ghost. I realize they had many records out early on that I was not that familiar with, and I did not know what they sounded like based on their image. And then when I heard them, I went, ‘This is really good music.’ It’s very melodic. There’s even some of the ’70s classic rock guitar playing to it that I really like.

Progressive guitar playing, progressive bass playing, but having very clean. So, to me, Ghost kind of wraps it all together.”
