We may not know the true identities of the members of Ghost B.C., but we do know this: Papa Emeritus II and his backing band of Nameless Ghouls know their way around a cover. The Swedish metal oddballs have shared a hammy, theatrical cover of Depeche Mode’s “Waiting for the Night,” the meditative centerpiece on the synth trio’s 1990 LP, Violator. While the original hovers in a mid-tempo abyss, this just-released alternate take — which appears as a bonus track on the Japanese edition of Ghost B.C.’s second album, Infestissumam — chugs along with the help of doom-pop guitarwork and cheeseball organ playing. Hear it above, and revisit Ghost B.C.’s Dave Grohl-assisted cover of ABBA’s “I’m a Marionette.”
