The names of the band members have remained anonymous since forming in 2008. It has been surrounded by controversy, mainly to is satirical portrayal of the Catholic Church. The band is fronted by Papa Emeritus, and surrounded by “Nameless Ghouls.” Emeritus appearance is best described as an anti-Pope, with a face painted like a skull.
