    Of these options, I hope Body Count wins.
    Metallica will likely win the rock category.

    The Metal Storm awards are more prestigious, for metal at least.

    Body Count is literally the worst metal band i've ever heard in my life. That said, none of the other songs are great either. 'Sultan's Curse' is okay but not my favorite from Emperor of Sand. 'Invisible Enemy' is a very forgettable track. I really like Code Orange's 'Bleeding in the Blur' from the same album but i'm not a fan of 'Forever' at all. Haven't heard Meshuggah's song, i'll have to look that up.

    Soo as of right now, kinda hoping Sultan's Curse wins.

    For Best Rock Album...... Guess i'm okay with Metallica or Mastodon if those are the options. Nothing More's album has its moments too, but i'm bias towards the heavier stuff. lol

    Just not my cup of tea I guess. I've only heard their new album. I'd rather turn to the country channel then listen to that awful No Lives Matter song on the radio again.

    The fun thing about posting news of Grammy on MS is comments section. Every year we ought to get 7-10 angry comments bashing nominations of Grammy.

    Must be nice to live somewhere where ANY metal gets played on the radio (besides a pair of Black Album Metallica songs)

    Lol, those selections are just garbage. Winter's Gate by Insomnium should just be handed the album of the year award.

    Well, standard radio stations don't play any metal but SiriusXM has the channel Liquid Metal. Its pretty cool but expensive as fuck!

    Really wish they would let people involved in the metal communities choose what songs were up for nomination.

    This would result in much better nominations. At least, it would cut the crap of noms of mainstream bands.

    ^ But it would kill the point of the awards. This is all about popularity and not music

    I have never heard August Burns Red and Code Orange, so can't Judge for them. That's why I said "almost all". The rest of the nominees are certainly metal.

    August Burns Red is the only one I have never heard here, but I would assume they were metal. Code Orange is like metalcore (metal+hardcore), so they should count. August Burns Red is said to be technical metalcore..

    If I remember correctly, Atlas...Rise was nominated for best rock song. I think Spit out the Bone is 10x better, but the whole album was great in my opinion so whatever
