Metallica to play Grammy awards, share video of debut “Halo on Fire” performance

Posted by on January 16, 2017

Next month, metal fans will probably be disappointed once again about the Grammys, which air on February 12th. Whether it’s undeserving bands winning awards, performances getting cut off, or the “in memoriam” segment leaving out worthy artist passings, it’s generally not an issue of if, but how often metal will get the shaft on the […]

Posted by on December 7, 2016

Gojira nominated for metal AND rock performance Grammy

Posted by on December 6, 2016

People have been bitching about the Grammy awards since a metal category was first awarded in 1989 and Metallica lost out to Jethro Tull.

Posted by on February 9, 2015

Although they may not have won a Grammy for their song “High Road,” Mastodon did in fact win all of our cold, metal, diamond-plated hearts.

Here’s your chance to listen to Metallica and Lang Lang play ‘One’

Posted by on February 18, 2014

A few weeks back, Metallica and Chinese pianist Lang Lang got together to play “One” on the Grammy Awards. Reaction was mixed, but it was certainly an interesting and ambitious rendition.
