Tool, Death Angel, Killswitch Engage, I Prevail And More Amongst 2020 Grammy Nominees

The 62nd Grammy Awards ceremony will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on January 26th, 2020. This year the recording academy have chosen an interesting line-up of nominee’s in the categories for Best Metal Performance, Best Rock Album, Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song, seeing a variety of artist from all over the spectrum, like such mainstream giants like Tool to underground thrash metal veterans Death Angel. These categories also see such acts like Gary Clark Jr. who is more known as an alternative blues musician being nominated for both Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song, along with I Prevail who are nominated for Best Rock Album and Best Metal Performance which could easily be argued that Slipknot’s “Unsainted” would be a much more deserving for Best Metal Performance. It just seems that the Grammy’s still don’t have it quite down when it comes to the rock and metal categories, nor will they ever. One thing is for sure is its time Revolver brings back the Golden Gods awards.
