Ghost Band Members Ages range between 35 to 45 years old. Ghost Band Members Names include Tobias Forge and Nameless Ghouls who play different instruments.

The Swedish masked rock band was initially known as Ghost B.C. during its initiation in 2006 in Linköping, Sweden. After changing their name to Ghost, they have become highly acclaimed for both their stage performance and anonymous personae.

This style was established after frontman and leader Tobias Forge penned the song titled 'Stand by Him.' The 3-minute 56 seconds track was released on the band's first studio album, Opus Eponymous.

Seven of the eight band members remain behind a virtually identical yet face-concealing fancy masks, prosthetic masks, and makeup that conceal their identity from the public.
