Ghost attended the 58th annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Monday, and video footage of an interview with the Swedish band on the event’s pre-show red carpet is now available.
Led by Papa Emeritus III, the group were honored with their first Grammy Award, taking home the Grammy in the Best Metal performance category for “Cirice”, the lead single from their latest album “Meliora.”
The tune was nominated alongside tracks by Slipknot (“Custer”), Lamb Of God (“512”), Sevendust (“Thank You”) and August Burns Red (“Identity”).
One of the Nameless Ghouls recently shared details of how the band received news of their Grammy nod.
“When we got the news that we were nominated, I just got a text saying, 'You're nominated for a Grammy,’” he told Grammy.com. “In Sweden, we have another prize called Grammis, which, internationally, is referred to as the Swedish Grammy. So when I got the text, I told my friend next to me that we were nominated for a Grammis.
“So it took like an hour later until I actually got it confirmed that they were actually talking about a Grammy, not a Grammis, which was a very mind-boggling experience.”
“Meliora” delivered Ghost their first-ever US Top 10 when the album debuted on the Billboard 200 at No. 8.
