Judas Priest Win Grammy for Best Metal Performance

Judas Priest have been honoured with a Grammy in the Best Metal Performance category. The award was bestowed upon the band during the pre-telecast ceremony at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards which are currently underway at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Judas Priest was nominated for “Dissident Aggressor,” a track from the band’s 2009 live album A Touch of Evil: Live. Lead vocalist Rob Halford and drummer Scott Travis accepted the award.

“The fifth time is the charm,” said Halford during his acceptance speech. He went on to mention that Judas Priest has been making metal for twenty-five years and still love what they do. He also thanked the radio stations and press that supported the band and then dedicated the award to heavy metal fans everywhere.

The nominees in this year’s Metal category were as follows:

Judas Priest – “Dissident Aggressor” (from A Touch of Evil: Live)
Lamb of God – “Set to Fail” (from Wrath)
Megadeth – “Head Crusher” (from Endgame)
Ministry - "SeƱor Peligro" (from Adios...)
Slayer – “Hate Worldwide” (from World Painted Blood)

The only albums considered for this year’s Grammys were those released from October 1, 2008 through August 31, 2009. The nominees are determined by 12,000 music industry professionals, all of which belong to the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS).

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]

A friend of mine mentioned 2012 last night to me and it's the first I heard about it so I jumped on here out of curiosity. I think it's kind of sick and sounds like a bunch of skeptical jargon.
I choose to live every day like it is the last because let's be real, WHO THE HELL KNOWS what is going to happen or when it's your time to go on. The past is history, the future is a mystery and now is a gift, thats why it's called the present. It's not healthy to sit around and trip out about when you will die. Stop wasting your time you have now.
