NEWS | 2011 Grammy Nominees for Best Metal Performance

It’s the new year, 2011, and as usual, a number of Heavy metal acts are competing for the upcoming Grammy Awards to be held this coming February 13, just before the Valentines Day. As you can see, from 2009 up until today, a lot of Heavy metal bands just recently released new albums. 2 years ago, we’ve got Slayer’s World Painted Blood, Lamb of God’s Wrath, Megadeth’s Endgame, Killswitch Engage’s self-titled album, Children of Bodom’s compilation album Skeletons in the Closet, and some more. While last year we saw the release from bands like Iron Maiden’s fifteenth studio album The Final Frontier, Nu Metal band Korn with Korn III: Remember Who You Are, and more, this time we’ve got these bands (below) nominated as Best Metal Performace for the 2011 Grammy Awards:

Iron Maiden – El Dorado
from The Final Frontier

Korn – Let the Guilt Go
from Korn III: Remember Who You Are

Lamb of God – In Your Words
from Wrath

Megadeth – Sudden Death
from Sudden Death

Slayer – World Painted Blood
from World Painted Blood

Honestly, I am very satisfied of which bands are nominated for this year’s Grammy. They are all competitive and we’ve got bands with a name from different genres. From the Nu Metal songs from Korn, the Groove Metal of Lamb of God, the classic and traditional yet powerful Heavy Metal of Judas Priest and Iron Maiden and lastly, the two out of the Big 4 of Thrash Metal, Slayer and Megadeth. This is Dave Mustaine and the rest of Megadeth’s ninth grammy nomination. This is a battle of genres. I hope this year’s Grammy would be very memorable among Metalheads.

I also would like to congratulate metal god Rob Halford and the rest of Judas Priest for winning last year’s Grammy, beating Lamb of God, Slayer, Megadeth, and Ministry.
