February has been a good month for Ghost. At the Grammy awards in Los Angeles they took home the trophy for Best Metal Performance for the song “Cirice.” Last night (Feb. 24) in their home country of Sweden at the Grammis Awards they won Best Hard Rock / Metal Album for Meliora.

In addition to winning the Grammis, Ghost also performed the song “He Is.” Watch the video above for the award presentation and acceptance speech along with their live performance.

Also nominated in the category were Backyard Babies’ Four By Four, Tribulation’ The Children of the Night, Refused’s Freedom and Graveyard’s Innocence & Decadence. It was the second consecutive Grammis for Ghost. Last year they won for Infestissumam. They were also nominated in 2011 for Opus Eponymous, but did not win.

Ghost also won a couple of 2015 Loudwire Music Awards. A Nameless Ghoul took the prize for Best Bassist, while Meliora was the top vote-getter for Best Metal Album.

The band is currently on tour in Europe, but will be returning to the U.S. this spring. The Black To the Future tour kicks off April 13 on Montclair, N.J. They’ll also be playing numerous festivals such as Fort Rock, Welcome To Rockville and Carolina Rebellion.
