Recently, Ghost singer Tobias Forge was asked what he feels metal is missing in 2022. This question came from a fan Q&A (hosted by Metal Hammer). In speaking to what he feels is missing, he ends up sharing a hope that he has for the genre.

Per Ghost singer Tobias Forge:

“It would be cool if there were newer, young bands regarded as more than a novelty, or an underground treasure. More organic rock bands of 20-year-olds recognised on a little bit more of a… I hate to say mainstream, but above the pub level. I’m all about underground, I come from the underground, and I worship the underground music, but for the resurgence of rock, we need that.

“I’d love if there were more bands that went through a similar recognition [channel] to Måneskin, actually. I think they’re really cool. They won Eurovision because they’re great, but they’re one of the few exceptions of it not being the end of their career. That’s usually what happens if you’re a band.”

Based on what he is saying, it seems that Forge would like for rock acts to have more of a presence in popular music today (or at least for heavy bands to get more recognition). What do you make of Forge’s thoughts? During that same fan Q&A, Forge was asked to pick between Iron Maiden, Kiss, and Misfits, and he had to remove one of them from history. Which one do you think he picked? Follow this link here to learn.
