Ghost Takes Home The “Best Metal Performance” Grammy

Looks like I called it: Ghost has taken home the Grammy award for this year’s “best metal performance” category.

It’s clear by the video below that the band was very out of place, with a perplexed crowd and an odd lack of applause, but that’s probably to be expected considering the venue and how little emphasis gets placed on metal at this overblown awards show.

It’s nice to see music of this variety breaking into the mainstream consciousness, although of course its odd that a band that’s so tenuously connected to metal actually won the award.

Ghost’s performance of “Cirice” from the “Meliora” album beat out the other nominees August Burns Red, Lamb Of God, Sevendust, and Slipknot.

Ghost Performs Live On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

This past Friday on the eve of Halloween, Swedish band Ghost made its late night television debut on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert with a rousing performance of the song “Cirice.”

“Cirice” reached the Top 10 at radio at Active Rock and Mainstream Rock and is featured on the band’s third album “Meliora,” which debuted in the Top 10 (#8) on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Charts.

Papa Emeritus III and his nameless ghouls have spent the past two months in North America delivering satanic melodies to audiences across the continent as part of the “Black To The Future” headlining tour. One stop of the trek was even nixed when Papa unfortunately lost a pope vs. pope battle against our friend Frankie.
