Ghost Capture Best Metal Video in 6th Annual Loudwire Music Awards

Subscribe to Loudwire on

Ghost have come out victorious in the 6th Annual Loudwire Music Awards’ category for Best Metal Video. The Swedish cult band captured the award for “Square Hammer” and its creepshow clip.

After releasing their third studio album, Meliora, in 2015, Ghost could have taken it easy in 2016. Instead, the Satanic preachers gave us their Popestar EP, filled with awesome covers and one brand new track. That track turned out to be a new fan favorite thanks in part to it’s classic horror-inspired video directed by Zev Deans.

“Square Hammer” is grainy like a traditional 1920s expressionist horror film, namely Nosferatu. Instead of sticking to black and white footage, much of Ghost’s “Square Hammer” clip uses a sickly green tint. After a giant Papa Emeritus III escapes the silver screen in a flock of bats, the Ghost Signal is broadcast above the cloudy metropolis, calling Ghost to come to the rescue.

Ghost fans have been devouring “Square Hammer” and the track’s new video, and ultimately voted it to victory in the 6th Annual Loudwire Music Awards. Congratulations to Ghost for the glorious win!
