Ghost Honored By Grammy Nomination

(hennemusic) Ghost are in the running for their first Grammy Award at this month's event, and one of the Nameless Ghouls says the Swedish band is honored to be among those considered by the Recording Academy for recognition at the annual event.

"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.
