Carey, in part, had this to say: “I’d like to thank all the Gods, ’cause I don’t think it’s a good time to piss any of them off. My bandmates Justin, Adam and Maynard, who I couldn’t do anything without. And my mom for educating me and over a thousand other people. My lovely mother of my children — about-to-be children; just a child right now. This is for you also, baby.”

Here are the bands that were nominated in the “Best Metal Performance” category:

* CANDLEMASS – “Astorolus – The Great Octopus” (feat. Tony Iommi)
