According to a claim made last week, Papa Emeritus has fired all the Ghost members, other than himself. A person who said he was a former Ghost member talked about this issue.

Sweedish guitarist Martin Persner is claiming that he’s an original member of the band, and was “Omega” in the band. He shared a clip and said:

“Hi, my name is Martin, and I’ve been a part of the rock band Ghost for seven years. Some of you people know me as Omega or Quintessence or a Nameless Ghoul or a fucking asshole for that matter.

Since July of last year – 2016, that is – I’m no longer a part of Ghost, as some of you have noticed. The reasons why we’ll take at another date, not today.

I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you so much to everyone that has supported us, and me, and having come to the shows and all the tours and everything. I’m very, very happy and humbled for having been able to do this. And I’d like to say a massive thanks to every one of you from the bottom of my heart.

A long time ago, there was a band called MCC, Magna Carta Cartel. MCC went to sleep seven years ago as GHOST emerged. There really wasn’t much time for MCC and hasn’t been for a long, long time. Now things have changed and it’s time that MCC wakes up and rises up again.”
