Roadrunner Records extends congratulations to Megadeth for their nomination in the “Best Metal Performance” Grammy category for the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards.
Megadeth, lead by singer/guitarist/metal legend Dave Mustaine, who was the recipient of the first-ever “Golden God” award at the inaugural Revolver Golden Gods Awards, have received the ninth nomination of their storied career. Their first nomination came in 1990 and they’re still garnering nods two decades later in a testament to the band’s legacy, permanence, longevity and relevance! Megadeth have utterly dominated the “Best Metal Performance” category through the years. This year’s nomination is for the song “Sudden Death,” which appears on Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock. The song is being recognized for its hard-hitting, in-your-face intensity and skilled playing, which are the hallmarks of Megadeth’s music.
The 53rd annual Grammy Awards will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 13, 2011. The event will broadcast on CBS at 8pm ET/PT.
