Ghost deliver a ritual to the masses as they bring their Black to the Future tour to the Warfield in the City by the Bay.

Opening their set with “Spirit,” which also happens to be the first track on their latest offering Meliora, Ghost embarked on a 17-song journey on a cold and foggy evening in San Francisco.

Papa Emeritus III and the Nameless Ghouls gave their rabid fans (some of whom were in full costume) a good mix of songs from their back catalogue, and highlights included “Body and Blood,” “Devil Church,” “Year Zero,” and a stripped-down acoustic “Jigolo Har Megiddo.”

Support on this tour comes from London Psychedelic band Purson.

National Rock Review photographer Raymond Ahner was on hand.

Raymond Ahner is a professional freelance photographer residing in San Francisco, California. Growing up in the Bay Area, Raymond was lucky enough to witness both the Punk and Thrash Metal scene of the 1980's explode literally right in front of his eyes. It was a pretty special time in his life, and is what instilled his love for live music. Over the years Raymond has been fortunate enough to combine his passion for live music with his love of photography. And although he will always love shooting the big arena Rock show, it is in a tiny, packed to the rafters club were he his most at home with his gear.
