The Grammy Award, which in this era of MP3's and iPods, seems a sad relic from the past
Boring Grammy Season for the Rock World
The Grammy nominations were unveiled last night down in Nashville, the first time the show made it back to Music City since the 70s. During the nominating ceremony, a sad list of rock nominees was presented. For the Rock category, The Black Keys made it in, but so did folksters Mumford and Sons, Coldplay, Alabama Shakes and other non rockers. For the Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal category, Anthrax, Iron Maiden, Halestorm, Megadeth, Marilyn Manson and Lamb of God all got nods. There are over 80 different categories for this year’s Grammy Awards, which will surely be the most boring award ceremony ever.
Hitting the road
Stone Sour will be hitting the road with Papa Roach in 2013. The tour will kick off in Pennsylvania January 20th and will snake it’s way to Chicago January 27th. The 18-date tour will then end up in Denver February 17th. Stone Sour is expected to release House of Gold and Bones Part 2 shortly after the tour. Then, sometime in the Spring of 2013 a comic book based off the concept of House of Gold and Bones will come out. We’ll keep you posted on actual dates.
There’s yet another video from Quebec Magnetic released online by Metallica. This time, it’s a bit more of a classic tune. You can find the video of Metallica’s performance for “Master of Puppets” online. Quebec Magnetic hits stores December 11th. Watch the latest video below or at this link.
