Not planning to watch the 56th Annual Grammy Awards? You may want to reconsider, because Metallica will be performing at the show! In typical Grammy fashion, Metallica won't be simply playing a song straight-up. Instead the thrash band will collaborate with Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang.
Another year, another edition of the Grammy Awards. A bunch of great bands were given a Best Metal Performance nomination for the 2014 ceremony. Among the acts nominated are Anthrax, who received the nod for their cover of AC/DC's 'T.N.T.' We caught up with Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian on the phone to get his reaction to the nomination.
Dream Theater have received their second overall Grammy nomination. The progressive metal giants were nominated for the golden gramophone in the 2014 Best Metal Performance category for 'The Enemy Inside.' In response to the nomination, Dream Theater have released a statement to show their appreciation.
Metal may not get the wealth of recognition that other genres receive, but the big category that every metalhead music fan should be paying attention to is the Best Metal Performance category. The nominees for the 2014 Grammy Awards were just announced and there's a diverse group of acts populating the category.
The 55th Annual Grammy Awards were held last night (Feb. 10), and it was business as usual for the famed awards show. Music's biggest names walked the carpet, while shiny golden gramophones were given out to rock artists such as the Black Keys, Halestorm and Trent Reznor + Atticus Ross. However, a sense of disarray resonated with various musicians, who took to Twitter in order to vent their disapproval of the Grammy Awards.
