Northern Invasion Announces 2015 Lineup

Northern Invasion - the newest addition to the World’s Loudest Month festival series - is set for Saturday, May 9th at Somerset Amphitheater in Somerset, WI, just outside the Twin Cities.

The new rock and camping festival will feature a first-year lineup headlined by global rock juggernauts Slipknot, with a roster of heavyweights including Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Three Days Grace, Halestorm, The Pretty Reckless, In This Moment, Anthrax, Live, Motionless In White, Young Guns, Thousand Foot Crutch, We Are Harlot, Starset and Crobot.

“We’ll be fresh out of the studio just in time to participate in the 1st annual Northern Invasion. It’s a huge festival and it will be amazing to get back on stage with peers in Slipknot, Volbeat, Halestorm and so many other kick ass bands,” says Ivan Moody of Five Finger Death Punch.

Full details on the festival, including ticket info, can be found over at this location. More...

Metal Bands Lose Out To Rock At The Grammy Awards

It probably shouldn't come as much of a surprise that metal isn't well represented in the annual Grammy awards, with possibly our most noticeable wins coming from Slayer in 2007 and 2008.

This year wasn't an exception, and unfortunately there isn't much wiggle room for actual metal acts to win when hard rock and heavy metal are lumped into a single category.

None of our "Best of 2012" winners here at Metalunderground.com made the nominations, and fully heavy bands only managed to get into the "Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance" category at the Grammy's this year. The nominees were:

"Love Bites (So Do I)" – Halestorm
"I'm Alive" – Anthrax
"Blood Brothers" (live) – Iron Maiden
"Ghost Walking" – Lamb of God
"No Reflection" – Marilyn Manson
"Whose Life (Is It Anyways?)" – Megadeth

In a move that will likely leave metal fans scratching their heads, but will please fans of the mainstream, Halestorm took home the win for "Love Bites (So Do I)." Footage of the event and Halestorm's acceptance of the Grammy can be viewed below, courtesy of Artisan News Service.

In other news of interest to hard rock and metal lovers, Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails snagged a Grammy win for "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" soundtrack in the category of "Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media," along with a related win for "Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package" for the same soundtrack.
