Black Sabbath 'Ecstatic, Surprised and Very Happy' About Grammy 2014 Nominations
With Black Sabbath being among the top-nominated rockers of next year's Grammy Awards ceremony, singer Ozzy Osbourne couldn't contain the excitement about the success of the band's latest effort "13." "We are ecstatic, surprised and very happy!" Ozzy briefly commented (via Blabbermouth) about the nods. With a total of three nominations, Sabbath are leading the way for the rock crowd along with US rockers Queens of the Stone Age, who also managed to bag three nominations. The rest of the guitar-driven nominees includes the likes of Dream Theater, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Alice in Chains, Jack White and more. Check out full info about Grammys 2014 here. Also reacting to Grammy nods, metallers Killswitch Engage have praised the recognition of metal by more mainstream media, calling it refreshing. Similarly, prog veterans Dream Theater have dubbed their second consecutive nomination "mind-blowing." "We are all incredibly honored and excited about being nominated for a Grammy this year!" DT crew stated via press release. "News of our first nomination two years ago was amazing and now to be nominated for a second time is just mind blowing! We're so proud to be included in such an awesome group of bands and extremely grateful to all the academy members who voted for us. To us the acknowledgment, affirmation and recognition of progressive music by the Grammys is especially meaningful and rewarding for us. Best of luck to all the nominees - and thank you once again!"
