The Swedish Grammys love Ghost! The band won a Grammy in their home land in 2014 for their debut, then again last year and now once more. The band picked up an award last night, but there was something interesting to note.
Only one Nameless Ghoul showed up to accept the award. In the past, be it Swedish Grammys or the US Grammys ceremony, Ghost always showed up as Papa and his posse.
Last week, we reported on a new interview with A Nameless Ghoul, who many believe to be Ghost mastermind Tobias Forge in disguise, where the Ghoul revealed that the band's next record would be darker, but also hinted at lineup changes saying "I think one of the secrets behind our preserving ability is the fact that we don't necessarily have to have the same six people in the room to make that sound, which helps." The Ghoul pointed to Queens of the Stone Age's revolving lineup, "Everything goes through Josh's [Homme] hands, and therefore it sounds like Queens of the Stone Age, regardless of who he brings in and out of the band, which is, I guess, a similar situation."
With only one Ghoul showing up to accept this award, it further fuels speculation that the Ghost mastermind is in the process of forming a new band, but obviously nobody is going on record saying one way or the other.
Regardless, this should be an interesting year for Ghost. Watch the acceptance speech below.
