Ghost Honored By Grammy Nomination
"Cirice", the lead single from "Meliora" is a finalist in the Best Metal Performance category alongside Slipknot's "Custer", Lamb Of God's "512", "Thank You" by Sevendust and "Identity" by August Burns Red.
"Being nominated for a Grammy is obviously a big honor for any band or artist - obviously, ourselves included," the Nameless Ghouls tells Grammy.com. "Especially for us, as a Swedish band, it feels extra honoring, I guess. Especially us maneuvering in the rock genre, where traditionally it's usually British or American bands.
"To my knowledge, we are the first Swedish rock band to ever be nominated for a Grammy, which is also the reason why when we got the news that we were nominated, I just got a text saying, 'You're nominated for a Grammy.'"
"In Sweden, we have another prize called Grammis, which, internationally, is referred to as the Swedish Grammy," he continues. "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.
"So winning or not winning, just being nominated is a big honor, and for us it's definitely a sign of recognition that we can suck on for the rest of our lives." Read more and check out the song here.
