Slayer frontman Tom Araya has posted a message online regarding the band's recent nomination if the Metal category for next year's Grammy Awards. His message reads as follows:

"I admit, I'm excited and kind of surprised. To have Slayer's music recognized by an organization as traditional as the Grammys - five times now - is like that gold star that someone puts up by your name. It's unexpected, but it's cool."

The band will be fighting off competition from Megadeth, Korn, Lamb Of God and Iron Maiden from the award, which if they win will be their third Grammy.

Good for slayer. Don't really like them anymore, but I think it would be cool if they got a grammy. There are some bands out there that still deserve one though.

If the Bee Sharps got a Grammy, I don't see why Slayer shouldn't get another one.

I'd like LOG to win but i think it will go to Megadeth, they've been nominated like 7 times and never won?
