These bands are legendary for their live shows, and Swedish metal act Ghost (aka Ghost B.C.) are well on their way to ascending to those same heights.
The Word Alive have been riding high on the success of their second full-length album, 'Life Cycles,' and the Phoenix-based metalcore band is set to continue the 2012 disc's momentum with a recently shot video for the album's title track.
