Black Sabbath’s ‘God Is Dead?’ Wins 2014 Grammy for Best Metal Performance

Black Sabbath

Congrats are in order for Black Sabbath, who took home the 2014 Grammy for Best Metal Performance on Sunday (June 26) for their song ‘God Is Dead?’ It was a solid category this year, but the metal godfathers emerged victorious.

The legendary band’s lead single from their album ’13’ beat out Anthrax‘s ‘T.N.T.,’ Dream Theater‘s ‘The Enemy Inside,’ Killswitch Engage‘s ‘In Due Time’ and Volbeat‘s ‘Room 24′ with special guest King Diamond for the honor.

Sabbath were not in attendance at the pre-telecast Grammy ceremony as they were preparing to be one of the presenters on the main show. Pop singer Cyndi Lauper, who co-hosted the pre-ceremony, accepted for the band after speaking with them prior to the event. “I know that Ozzy is not here and I saw them last night,” said Lauper. “They asked me to accept this award for them. It’s awesome. And I’m sure he thanks the Academy. They had to be next door to do something. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everybody.”

Just prior to the awards, Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach spoke about what an amazing category it is this year and being in such great company with Black Sabbath. Meanwhile, Volbeat’s Rob Caggiano, attending the Grammys for the first time, stated how thrilled he was to essentially be a double nominee, also playing on Anthrax’s cover of ‘T.N.T.’ But being doubly nominated, he showed no bias adding, “I think whoever wins this category deserves it.”

Stay tuned for more Grammy updates throughout the day.
