And the Nominees for This Year’s Bullshit “Best Metal Performance” Grammy Are…

0

Between the Buried and Me – “Condemned to the Gallows”

Deafheaven – “Honeycomb”

High on Fire – “Electric Messiah”

Trivium – “Betrayer”

Underoath – “On My Teeth”

So who gets it? Deafheaven are certainly in vogue with the non-metal crowd these days, which probably gives them an advantage. Personally, I’m pulling for Trivium. Hey, I’m biased.

Meanwhile, there are two other categories which may be of interest to metal fans, given some of the nominated artists:

Best Rock Song
Greta Van Fleet – “Black Smoke Rising”
Twenty One Pilots – “Jumpsuit”
Bring Me the Horizon – “Mantra”
St Vincent – “Masseduction”
Ghost – “Rats”

Best Rock Album
Alice in Chains – Rainier Fog
Fall Out Boy – Mania
Ghost – Prequelle
Greta Van Fleet – From the Fires
Weezer – Pacific Daydream

And on top of all of that, the Guns N’ Roses’ super-duper-extra-special-limited-edition-deluxe reissue of Appetite For Destruction has been shortlisted in the Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package category.

The Grammys go down on February 10, 2019 in Los Angeles. Huzzah.
