Swedish ghoul rockers Ghost played their first live show in over 2 years a few days ago in Reno, Nevada. The tour is in support of their recently announced new album, Impera.

New songs were performed, new looks were revealed (they really can’t help it at this point, can they)?. And, most notably to us, it was the first time that the band has played their cover of a little song you’ve probably never heard of called ‘Enter Sandman.’

The studio version of Ghost’s Enter Sandman cover originally appeared as part of the Blacklist covers charity project from Metallica:
