64th Annual GRAMMY AWARDS To Take Place In Las Vegas In April

The 64th annual Grammy Awards, originally scheduled for late January in Los Angeles, have been rescheduled and will now be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3.

The following is a statement from Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr.: “I’m so pleased to let you know that the 64th annual Grammy Awards have been rescheduled and will now be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3 (8:00-11:30 PM, live ET/5:00-8:30 PM, live PT) on the CBS Television Network and will be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+Trevor Noah, the Emmy Award-winning host of ‘The Daily Show’, will return as master of ceremonies for Music’s Biggest Night.

“Additional details about the dates and locations of other official Grammy Week events, including the Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony, MusiCares‘ Person of the Year, and the Pre-Grammy Gala, will be announced soon.

“We are excited to take the Grammys to Las Vegas for the very first time, and to put on a world-class show. From the moment we announced the postponement of the original show date, we have been inundated with heartfelt messages of support and solidarity from the artist community. We are humbled by their generosity and grateful for their unwavering commitment to the Grammy Awards and the Academy‘s mission. We appreciate the leadership CBS and our production partners at Fulwell 73 have shown during these challenging weeks and the flexibility of everyone who worked toward this solution.”

This year’s Grammy nominations were announced on November 23, 2021. The nominations were announced during a livestream from the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, which featured Mason and Board Of Trustees chair Tammy Hurt, as well as some special guests.

Up for the the “Best Metal Performance” award at the 64th annual Grammy Awards are DEFTONESDREAM THEATERGOJIRAMASTODON and ROB ZOMBIE.

The eligibility period for the 64th annual Grammy Awards was September 1, 2020, through September 30, 2021.

The 2022 ceremony will be the first since The Recording Academy announced that it has made significant changes to its awards process to ensure that the Grammy Awards rules and guidelines are transparent and equitable. The show no longer uses anonymous review committees to determine its nominees. Now, all nominees are based solely on thousands of votes from the Academy‘s voting members. They also changed the number of categories in which Academy members can vote and added two new awards.

In January 2020, former Recording Academy CEO Deborah Dugan filed a discrimination charge against the Recording Academy of Arts & Sciences, alleging she was being retaliated against for reporting misconduct within the Academy. In the 46-page complaint, Dugan further alleged that “the Grammy voting process is ripe with corruption,” detailing secret committees the group used to “push forward artists with whom it has relationships.” She said that as many as 30 artists who were not selected by the 12,000 voting members were added to the possible nomination list.

Embryonic Autopsy launches debut video for “Regurgitated and Reprocessed” featuring a solo Terrance Hobbs of Suffocation

Brutal old school Death Metal outfit Embryonic Autopsy have just released their debut video for “Regurgitated and Reprocessed” featuring a guest solo by Terrance Hobbs of Suffocation through Massacre Records. The video was directed by Jason Meudt and can be seen here:

The band features the return of Tim King from technical death metal pioneers Oppressor on vocals. Former Otep guitarist Scott Roberts covers all musical compositions including all guitars, bass, and keyboards with drums provided by the critically acclaimed Arnaud Krakowka. The project features a signature guest solo by the legendary James Murphy (testament, death, obituary, disincarnate). This is James’s first guest appearance solo on a song in nearly a decade. Also contributing guest solos are Suffocation’s guitar master Terrance Hobbs, Doc Coyle of God Forbid, and guitar virtuoso Justin James.

Embryonic Autopsy’s debut “Prophecies of the conjoined” will be released by Massacre Records through all digital formats and also on vinyl and digi-pak CD. The album was produced by guitarist Scott Roberts and mixed by Scott and Ulrich Wild (Dethklok, Pantera). A release date is set for February 18, 2022.

The music of Embryonic Autopsy consists of sheer old school brutality. No studio tricks. No gimmicks. Just one goal: to bring back the guttural and raw force of early ‘90s Death Metal the way it was meant to be.

Embryonic Autopsy “Prophecies Of The Conjoined”:

1     Regurgitated And Reprocessed (feat Terrance Hobbs)

2     Cauterized Womb Impalement (feat James Murphy)

3     Prophecies Of The Conjoined

Industrial/Rock Band, NULL CELL Drops Highly-Anticipated New Album, ‘Nemesis’

 Industrial/Rock band NULL CELL has just unveiled their new full-length release, Nemesis. Titled due to melodramatic implications of the word, Nemesis brings together the influences of cyberpunk stories, the hard-hitting beats from electro-industrial and EBM music as well as musical genres such as hip-hop and thrash metal.

Themes on the new album include the likes of friendly relationships turning sour with hate which Isabella specifically addresses on the title track. Songs such as, “Dream Emulator” &  “Mechanesia” are about trying to overcome depression, and in some cases failing. Songs such as “Breaking the Code”, “Psychic Slave” and “Twitching Alive” address losing control of your physical body and mind to an outside force

Nemesis is available on limited edition CD and digital formats.

Buy/Stream NULL CELL Now Via Bandcamp

BIOGRAPHY:
Nebraska native Isabella Chains effortlessly blends aspects of metal and industrial/electronic genres to create the all-out sonic assault known as NULL CELL.
