COREY TAYLOR Says GRAMMYS ‘Don’t Respect’ Heavy Metal Genre At All

SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor has accused The Recording Academy of disrespecting the heavy metal genre by not including it in the televised portion of the Grammy Awards.

HALESTORM was honored with a Grammy in the “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance” category in the pre-telecast ceremony at the 55th annual Grammy Awards, which were held last night (Sunday, February 10) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. HALESTORM was nominated for the track “Love Bites (So Do I)” , from the band’s 2012 album “The Strange Case Of…”

Writing on his Twitter profile shortly after the “Hard Rock/Metal” winner was announced, Taylor said: “I’m happy for HALESTORM, but sad because the Grammys don’t respect our genre AT ALL. We get one category and it’s not even televised.”

In an effort to continuously evolve its Grammy Awards process, The Recording Academy announced in April 2011 that it had restructured the Grammy categories across all genres and fields, bringing the total number of categories to be recognized at the 54th Grammy Awards in 2012 to 78 from 109. As a result, instead of separate “Best Metal” and “Best Hard Rock” performance prizes, there is now a single “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance” award.
