Commented LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler: "I'm incredibly flattered to have my contributions within the band nominated.
"I've tried very hard to create a unique voice within the band with my drums and to share this with several of the world's best drummers is an incredible honor. I think all the nominees are deserving and I'm lucky to be included.
"Two years ago the band won a Golden Gods award in the U.K. for 'Best Live Band' and to have the same nomination at home feels very good. We've worked very hard to make sure our shows never disappoint, and to have our work recognized is very satisfying. Win or lose, we're in great company."
LAMB OF GOD is creating an exclusive song for the upcoming blockbuster title Iron Man 2: The Videogame. The all-new song, "Hit the Wall", serves as the perfect complement to the nonstop super-powered action of the game, which heads to consoles and handheld systems everywhere in April 2010. The game is based on the cinematic universe featured in Marvel Studios' "Iron Man 2", in theaters end of April 2010.
LAMB OF GOD received a second Grammy Award nomination in the "Best Metal Performance" category — for the track "Set to Fail" from its latest album, "Wrath", which came out last year on Epic Records.
The band was previously nominated in the "Best Metal Performance" category for the song "Redneck" from LAMB OF GOD's 2006 album "Sacrament".
"Wrath" landed at position No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart back in February 2009 with first-week sales of over 67,000 copies.
