SLAYER Wins GRAMMY In 'Best Metal Performance' Category - Feb. 11, 2007 SLAYER was honored with a Grammy in the "Best Metal Performance" category in the pre-telecast ceremony at the 49th annual Grammy Awards, which are being held tonight (Sunday, February 11) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The nominees in the "Metal" category were as follows:

LAMB OF GOD - "Redneck"
MASTODON - "Colony Of Birchmen"
MINISTRY - "Lies, Lies, Lies"
SLAYER - "Eyes Of The Insane"
STONE SOUR - "30/30-150"

This was SLAYER's second Grammy nomination, the first being in 2002 for the track "Disciple" (from "God Hates Us All"), also in the "Best Metal Performance" category.

SLAYER, currently headlining a North American tour, did not attend the Grammys presentation, but vocalist/bassist Tom Araya had this to say about the win from his hotel room in Columbus, OH: "Jeff [Hanneman] and I put a lot into 'Eyes of the Insane' so we're thrilled that the Grammy voters took the time to listen to it, and then vote for it. We're out here on the road and we're all really, really happy."

In a recent interview with John Foxworthy of Garage Radio, SLAYER guitarist Kerry King stated about the band's Grammy nomination, "[I] don't even care. Our fans don't give a shit and that's the most important thing to me. I mean, if they want it ... well, they probably want us to win, but just so they can say 'Fuck those other guys.' It's not gonna make us any better. People may look at us differently, but not anybody that's a SLAYER fan. You know what I mean?"

And to Breaker Metal, I'm still waiting for you to make a reasonable case in support of your undying conviction that Slayer is a nu-metal band. I've been waiting 6 months, and you still haven't come up with the goods. What the fuck is your problem?

i would have to disagree about Seasons in the Abyss and South of Heaven. I find slayer to be kind of a cut rate thrash band. Also, it has not played nearly as big an influence on my own playing as bands like Anthrax and Death. So, in all honesty, i could care less about your opinion of slayer. They just bother me because they (more specifically kerry king) talk so much shit, but don't have the abilities to back it up.

First of all, they Grammys are a freaking joke. Like someone lese said, they will have nominees and performances from all kinds of SHIT - like rap, crap, R and B, blues, reggae, country, hip hop, and all that garbage. Metal is nowhere to be seen. I like the fact that metal doesnt need the Grammys to be valiadted. Metal has always been great because we didnt need anyones permission to be what we are. Screw the Grammys.

Having said that, if this was a repudable reward show, I would have like to seen Iron Maiden or Poisonblack be nominated. I remember when Maiden was up for the Wicker Man and lost to the Deftones or some shit like that.

Hmm. They actually had some decent nominees this year. Slayer deserves the Grammy though. Talk about a band that has paid their dues. Anyone who says they aren't relevant is a moron. HIGHLY influential band. Their impact on metal will continue to be felt for decades to come. The numbers of metal musicians who were compelled to pick up an instrument after hearing say Reign In Blood are countless.

The "hard rock" nominees were interesting also.

Although, I must admit, the Grammys themselves are pretty lame. I used to be get bummed that metal didn't get it's due from that crowd, but now I don't care. They really don't mean a thing to anyone but the artists that win them.

It would have been nice it they televised the handing over of the awards, but I suppose that Justin Timberlake and the hip-hop clowns=ratings.

It's funny, because I remember back in 1988 or 1989 (?) when the rap community "boycotted" the Grammys because they didn't televise the rappers getting their awards. Now, they get half the damn show. I suppose Slayer's audience isn't a target demographic.

And oh yeah, I still can't get over Jethro Tull beating out Metallica that one year. I actually stayed up on a school night to see Metallica play. That's when I pretty much lost interest in the whole dumb thing.

The Grammys are just an excuse (like all awards shows) to egt a bunch of famous people in one place in order to get ratings. No one even remembers who wins. It's a joke and a half.

Gotta throw the horns for Slayer though. I'm happy for them. Irrelevant? Hardly.

ive been a Slayer fan for over 20 years and listened to CI 5 times, and it is without a doubt Slayers worst ****ing record and a complete crock of chit.

And how Slayer could win a grammy for one of their worst songs and shitest records is almost comical, and Iron Maiden who could pluck a better song out of their rear ends not only hasn't won one but weren't even nominated??? what a joke!

FUCK THE GRAMMYS!!! but YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEA SLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYER!!! the other bands that were up for nominee in the metal category wrere good too even Stone Sour but this fuckin MTV TRL, Teen Bop shit sucks and there should be a totally different show for real music. I don't give a fuck. The real fans support these bands and they don't need no fricken grammy they can sell mad albums and go platinum and still not have any MTV or any mainstream station/tv channel recognition.

JJay, Christ Illusion is a very good Slayer album, and by the way much better than Show no Mercy.

Woot, go slayer!

yeah, yeah, Christ Illusion isn't the greatest. But just look at the competition for this category, not too tough.

Show No Mercy is FAR better than CI. At least it had some memorable riffs

I wish Mastodon would've won the award instead. don't get me wrong, I love Slayer, and the new album is awesome, but I think Mastodon put a lot more hard work into their new album, and it's WAY more inventive and creative.

Would at least get nominated. It was rumoured they were? Congrats to Slaya!! By the way The Dixie Chicks performance was moving.

the voters (old/corporate fucks) don't care about this category. theres no way in hell more than one or two of them has an informed opinion about it, so they go with a brand that theyve heard of. and who hasnt heard of slayer? thats why bands like motorhead, deftones, slipknot have won in the past.

I think its cool that Slayer won, but honestly Slayer dont need any fucking trendy grammy awards. Slayer has survived this slong by doing what they want to do and refusing to sellout to the mainstream bullshit.

CHRIST ILLUSION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love it. With all the shit that the Grammy's induce, it's nice to see Slayer win. I think it's an achievement for metal that a REAL metal band wins! They may not care whether or not they win but I think it's cool. It's probablly the only good thing about the Grammy's, that Slayer is apart of their history now. I say bravo Slayer, bravo! If only Make Them Suffer by Cannibal Corpse was nominated, then it would be a party!

SABBATH w/DIO singing!!!

Surprise, surprise. The metal grammy goes to Slayer again, because the award committee knowledge of metal is basically negligible, so they figure they'll toss it to a bunch of formerly controversial washed up thrash ex-icons to look hip and edgy.

If any of those bands deserved it, it was Mastodon, but even then, I could think of better.
