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.
