Earlier this week, Ghost won Best Metal Performance at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony at the Staples Center in LA, for their release ‘Cirice’.
One of the band’s Nameless Ghouls had a chat with Rolling Stone after the event, telling them it means a lot – and they nearly didn’t get to collect the award.
“We never got to the nervous part, which was kind of surreal. We got in the room so late that our producer and one of our A&R men didn’t even know we had made it into the room, so they headed to the podium to collect the prize.
“If you look at the video of our acceptance, you see those two dudes out of nowhere walking toward to the stage. Then they cut to us coming down the aisle. That was basically us coming into the room almost a minute before. The awards show itself was very, very short for us. We went in, got the prize and left.”
“All of a sudden, you feel how fucking important it actually is,” he added. “Getting a Grammy is not to be belittled at all. It means a lot. All of a sudden you’re elevated to another level.”
