Ghost's Grammy Red Carpet Interview Goes Online
Led by Papa Emeritus III, the group were honored with their first Grammy Award, taking home the Grammy in the Best Metal performance category for "Cirice", the lead single from their latest album "Meliora." The tune was nominated alongside tracks by Slipknot ("Custer"), Lamb Of God ("512"), Sevendust ("Thank You") and August Burns Red ("Identity").
One of the Nameless Ghouls recently shared details of how the band received news of their Grammy nod. "When we got the news that we were nominated, I just got a text saying, 'You're nominated for a Grammy,'" he told Grammy.com. "In Sweden, we have another prize called Grammis, which, internationally, is referred to as the Swedish Grammy. 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." Watch the interview clip here.
