Also from Sweden (Avatar and Meshuggah too), Grammy winners for best metal performance 2016, Ghost , took the stage at this year's Aftershock festival in Sacramento's Discovery Park at just-after three in the afternoon, on Sunday, but not before treating us to several minutes of beautiful, ethereal, plainsong chant, which added to the you-should-be-in-church feel of the stage backdrops; paintings of stained-glass windows... except the windows didn't depict saints, they were a tad darker and subterranean and more fiery than that.
