DT Comment On Second Grammy Nomination

Beitrag von Axel »


DREAM THEATER’s spirit of adventure and fearless musical virtuosity continues to reap dividends for the progressive metal titans who’ve just earned their second Grammy nomination, this time for Best Metal Performance for their single 'The Enemy Inside' from their current self-titled album on Roadrunner Records.

The band - John Petrucci (guitar), John Myung (bass), James LaBrie (vocals), Jordan Rudess (keyboards & continuum) and Mike Mangini (drums) - received its first-ever Grammy nomination in 2012 for On The Backs Of Angels (from their A Dramatic Turn Of Events album) in the Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance category.

Dream Theater has expressed their excitement over the Grammy news in this group statement: “We are all incredibly honored and excited about being nominated for a Grammy this year! News of our first nomination two years ago was amazing and now to be nominated for a second time is just mind blowing! We’re so proud to be included in such an awesome group of bands and extremely grateful to all the academy members who voted for us. To us the acknowledgment, affirmation and recognition of progressive music by the Grammys is especially meaningful and rewarding for us. Best of luck to all the nominees - and thank you once again!!”

METALLICA, LED ZEPPELIN, BLACK SABBATH, ANTHRAX, VOLBEAT and KILLSWITCH ENGAGE are also among the nominees for the 56th annual Grammy Awards, which were announced last week by The Recording Academy in the US.

The nominees in the Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance category include:

BLACK SABBATH - 'God Is Dead?'
DREAM THEATER - 'The Enemy Inside'
VOLBEAT feat. King Diamond - 'Room 24'

Led Zeppelin's ‘Kashmir (Live)’ also earned Best Rock Performance while Zep's Celebration Day and Black Sabbath's 13 earned Best Rock Album. Sabbath's ‘God Is Dead?' also gave Black Sabbath a nod in the Best Rock Song category. Metallica's Through The Never received a nomination in the Best Recording Package and ALICE IN CHAINS' The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here was chosen for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.

The Grammy Awards will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on CBS on Sunday, January 26th at 8 PM, ET/PT.

Da bin ich mal gespannt ob die "Jungs" das Konzert am 26.01.2014 in München verschieben und nach Los Angeles zur Grammy Verleihung fliegen...
