After Megadeth took home the Best Metal Performance award at the 2017 U.S. Grammy ceremony, Ghost has won the Best Hard Rock / Metal category at the Swedish Grammis awards held Tuesday night in Stockholm. The nominated bands were as follows:

Amaranthe - "Maximalism"
Cult Of Luna & Julie Christmas - "Mariner"
Dark Tranquillity - "Atoma"
Ghost - "Popestar"
In Flames - "Battles"

In Flames commented via Facebook: "Congrats to Ghost for winning 'Hard Rock/Metal Album of the Year.' Thanks for the nomination and good times, Grammis! #IFBattles17."

Video of Papa Emeritus accepting the award can be seen below. Notably, he is the only member of the band to appear, fueling speculation the nameless ghouls are in for a reboot, either entirely changing out the lineup or perhaps simply changing the costumes and names for the next release.

Last year, Ghost also won the U.S. Grammy for Best Metal Performance.

I'll just go out on a limb here and say these guys are the saviours of modern day metal. That is all.
