Shit!

I like Slayer, too. Been listening to them for over 20 years, not unlike King. But King really deserved this. Really a shame. But it certainly won't diminish my loyalty to you-know-who. Not just King deserved this, Andy did, too. And the rest of the band.

Again, it's a shame that the rest of the world isn't enlightened enough into the creative mind of this band.

King Diamond is an acquired taste. If you don't have any taste, acquire some...

Yeah I think King got robbed there. I agree, I love slayer also, but damn it. They got their award last year. Christ Illusion's reissue wasn't that impressive.

I'm extremely disappointed in the outcome, but one thing I know is this - King and his crew will always be winners in my eyes, Grammy or no Grammy.

To quote Flavor Flav from Public Enemy "Who gives a fuck about a God-damned Grammy?"

Slayer was great back in the day. King is great now and always.

Big shock... >:(

I wasn't even all that fond of the new King Diamond album but Christ Illusion was a terrible album and its insulting seeing that win.

Too bad King Diamond didn't get the award.
Definitely Slayer wasn't the best metal performance.
But it really doesn't matter , i never listened to King's music because of some silly prizes. :D:

I don't care if Slayer won! There's no way to compare King Diamond's discography to Slayer's one! King Diamond is the best band ever in the world under every point of view! I'm just disappointed 'cause he should deserve a recognition for being such a great artist! But who cares! Real art is not for everybody!
BTW, King Diamond and Slayer are old friends. I think King is glad for them.

I am not really glad from this too, but it really doesn't matter, because we all know, that King Diamond gives us the best metal performance for years! His good health is really more important now, to continue to rejoice by best!

this is about more than just industry recognition. winning a grammy helps an artist command more money from a record label. King's been at it a long time without compromising his music in favor of a more popular approach. nothing against Slayer or any of the other nominees, but this would have been a fortuitous win for King.

he gets my congrats anyway. :king:

King was the only one deserving to win. I can't believe Slayer won, one of the worst bands in metalhistory IMO.

Most of the academy voters don't even bother listening to the nominees, especially in the metal category.
I doubt they are Slayer fans!

Shit! It would be great if King Diamond had won....

Slayer were good in the past. Christ Illusion didn´t impress me - sure it´s better than God Hates Us All - but I think it was boring. But I thought that Slayer would win, because on every Metal-Festival you can hear "SLAYER!" screams from Metal-Fans. I think the grammy is more about popularity than art. King really deserved the award but if the world would be fair there were no war and no misery - therefore it´s a proof that the world isn´t fair...

King Diamond was and will be always my personal favourite artist!  :cool: \m/ :king:

I know Slayer recieved the award and congratulations to them even though it matters not in my heart because King will always make me proud to be a fan.  And thats something in my opinion that may be more important to a great artist then a award.



Stay heavy !

Hell, lets face it all the awards show are nothing but a dog and pony show.  They know whos gonna win ahead of time.  Those people would not know talent if it hit them.  Just being recognized is good enough for me.   \m/ \m/ \m/
