Ghost won the "Best Hard Rock/Metal" category at the Swedish Grammis Awards on Tuesday at Konserthuset in Stockholm.
The band were honored for their 2016 EP “Popestar”, ahead of fellow nominees Amaranthe, Cult Of Luna & Julie Christmas, Dark Tranquillity and In Flames.
The event marked Ghost’s third win at the Grammis, following a 2014 award for 2013’s “Infestissumum” and last year’s prize for 2015’s “Meliora.”
Upon its release last fall, “Popestar” made US history by becoming the first EP to land at No. 1 on the US Billboard Top Rock Albums in the chart's 10-year run.
Led by the lone original track and lead single “Square Hammer”, the package includes covers of songs originally recorded by Eurythmics, Echo & The Bunnymen, Simian Mobile Disco and Imperiet.
Ghost are currently working on new music with plans to release their fourth album later this year.
