GHOST: The four former Ghouls lost the trial Against Tobias Forge


According the Linköping NewsThe four former members of Ghost lost the dispute against the band’s front figure and therefore also face the costs of more than 1.3 million.

The ex- ghouls have to pay their own fees of about 3 million kr (335,000 USD) plus 1,3 million kr (145,000 USD) of Tobias Forge’s fees, which makes roughly 120,000 $ each.

Forge had claimed compensation for over 2 million kr, but the judge rules that about 700,000 kr were unnecessary costs and nothing that the ex-members

Henrik Palm (Eather) – member of GHOST since 2015

Takida are one of Sweden’s most popular rock bands going and having just recently finished their ‘A Perfect World’ UK and Europe tour in support of their latest album I caught up with guitarist Tomas Wallin to discuss this, their origins and what lies ahead in the future for the band and much more…

Can you tell us about your formation back in 1999?

Robert gave me (Tomas) a phone call and asked me if I wanted to join his band. We were a three-piece back then. We wrote our own songs from day one and we worked really hard to get our demos out. There have been a few members in the band but me and Rob are the only original ones left.

What made you decide on the name Takida and is true that this is taken from a character in a Japanese anime series called Nagareboshi Gin (It’s called Silver fang in Sweden)?

Yes, that’s true. Robert was, and still is, a very devoted Silver Fang fan. When we had to have a name for the band to put on the cover of our first demo (old), he suggested Gohei Takida. We shortened it down to Takida and that was it.
