None of these would fall under "best metal" for 2014 in my book. Sadly no one asked me .

Hey this is Matty Mullins. Honestly, Im a little upset that Memphis May Fire is not in the running. We are one of the greatest bands of our time and it boggles my mind that we were even mentioned. Dio? fcking Slipknot? All bullshit compared to us. Seriously Grammy people, next time pick the right band. Memphis May Fire.

Mastodon becomes the 21st century Metallica and sells out due to Grammy win.

And as for people saying that the nominated bands sold out.What the fck is selling out when aint no one is selling.the true bands don't care if they are nominated they make music beautiful, brutal,amazing metal

Memphis May Fire gives $10 handies in back of Tedeschi's after shows. For an extra $5 they'll swallow.
