Enslaved and Keep of Kalessin Nominated for Norwegian Grammy

Enslaved has been nominated for the Norwegian Grammy Awards in the category Best Metal Album for “Vertebrae.” The prize ceremony will take place in Oslo on Saturday, January, 24th.

Grutle Kjellson comments: "This is great! Although this our 5th nomination, I will never get used to receiving honors such as this! Some people claim these awards does not mean anything, and they might be right of course. Then again they are lying idiots if they claim they wouldn't appreciate a Best Metal Album award. It simply states that you are doing something right even if your life doesn't depend on it."

"Congratulations to our buddies in Keep of Kalessin with their nomination too!"

Keep of Kalessin is also nominated for Best Metal album for ”Kolossus.” Keep of Kalessin will start 2009 with a headlining Finland tour, which starts January 10th in Helsinki, then Jyväskylä, Turku and Tampere.

f*** Norway is so awesome. Over in the U.S. we give out awards for absolute crap like Soulja Boy and Fergie and over there they actually recognize the greatness of bands like Keep of Kalessin.

All awards shows have significant status it's there for a reason to give honor & show respect really to the hard earned works of that person in their choosen Career field: And in this case it's the SPELLEMAN's Norweigian Osla Awards which to me is just as validly important Award Show in this World. Every music artists/band & their fans need such a heavy happenin' in their lives saying hey you guys music works "masterrocks" & you need to know that: so therefore we have honaring important awards such as this...'congratulations to ENSLAVED & the other bands nominated for their jamming hard works and do believe that the power fiery Viking band Enslaved won this very special Spelleman's Oslo award, this is the second time in a row/the 1st was with their "Ruun" album & now it's a won for their newest Enslaved album/Cd "Vertabre" - so a heartfelt congrat's to a very hard working Viking BM band the legendary ENSLAVED. I don't have the new album "Vertabre" but if it's anything like "Ruun" which I have well it's a masterpiece gem like it's predessor. RUUN is a excellent. Peace!
