The Polar Music Prize is kind of a big deal. Think of it as the musical Nobel Peace Prize of Sweden given to artists for international recognition of excellence in the world of music. Each year, the award is given to both a classical musician and a modern-day musician, and drummer Lars Ulrich and bassist Robert Trujillo were presented the prize by Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf.

In honor of Metallica being the latest recipients of the award, Swedish rockers Ghost, along with Candlemass and Vargas and Lagola, delivered a somber-to-heavy cover of the band's staple hit "Enter Sandman."
