Ghost Wins Swedish Grammis Award In “Best Hard Rock / Metal” Category

After Megadeth took home the Best Metal Performance award at the 2017 U.S. Grammy ceremony, Ghost has won the Best Hard Rock / Metal category at the Swedish Grammis awards held Tuesday night in Stockholm. The nominated bands were as follows:

Amaranthe – “Maximalism”
Cult Of Luna & Julie Christmas – “Mariner”
Dark Tranquillity – “Atoma”
Ghost – “Popestar”
In Flames – “Battles”

In Flames commented via Facebook: “Congrats to Ghost for winning “Hard Rock/Metal Album of the Year”. Thanks for the nomination and good times, Grammis! #IFBattles17.”

Video of Papa Emeritus accepting the award can be seen below. Notably, he is the only member of the band to appear, fueling speculation the nameless ghouls are in for a reboot, either entirely changing out the lineup or perhaps simply changing the costumes and names for the next release.

Last year, Ghost also won the U.S. Grammy for Best Metal Performance.
