Here Are Your Rock And Metal 2019 Grammy Winners

Here are the bands and artists who won big at this year’s Grammy awards

While most headbangers couldn’t care less what the Recording Academy things, being honored with a Rock or Metal Grammy has a certain weight to it. If anything, it lets you know that the industry recognizes real, and wants to let those musicians who kick ass that their efforts haven’t gone unnoticed.

Well, the Premiere Ceremony of this year’s 60th Grammy Awards just wrapped up, and the Rock and Metal categories have been announced. Here’s who took home the award in 2019, followed by the other nominees:

Best Metal Performance: HIGH ON FIRE — ELECTRIC MESSIAH

BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME – Condemned To The Gallows
DEAFHEAVEN – Honeycomb
TRIVIUM – Betrayer
UNDEROATH – On My Teeth

Best Rock Song: ST. VINCENT — MASSEDUCTION

GRETA VAN FLEET – Black Smoke Rising
TWENTY ONE PILOTS
– Jumpsuit
BRING
ME THE HORIZONMANTRA
GHOST – Rats

Best Rock Album: GRETA VAN FLEET — FROM THE FIRES

ALICE IN CHAINS – Rainier Fog
FALL OUT BOY

Best Rock Performance: CHRIS CORNELLWHEN BAD DOES GOOD

ARCTIC MONKEYS – Four Out of Five
FEVER 333

GRETA VAN FLEET

This is a huge win for High On Fire and Greta Van Fleet, who are respectively a classic band and daring newcomer who definitely deserve the reward. More so, it marks a rare posthumous win for Chris Cornell, though this is his third award, the first two won in previous bands.

The only award left that any Kerrang! reader cares about is Best New Artist, for which Greta Van Fleet is nominated. We’ll let you know if the band wins.
