Shocking Revelations

Yesterday, we noticed that Ghost started incorporating a cowbell player into their live performances, and much like when their new bass player showed up, the internet has already figured out who the dude is.

MetalSucks reports that readers have figured out the identity of the cowbell player as Niels Nielsen, a Swedish musician and a friend of the band. The astute readers point to check-ins Neils makes on his Instagram page that correspond to the band's tour dates.

Neilson started with the tour in LA and he notes his arrival via an Instagram post:

He then posted photos in the following days from Pheonix and El Paso, corresponding to the band's tour dates. He then thanked the crowd of the band's San Antonio show:

So it's all but confirmed. Here are some of Neilsen's personal music projects:
