15:28 - !J.O.O.E.! That's circular logic. I was talking about submitting bands for potential votes based on their popularity, not the votes they get as a consequence of them being submitted.
15:23 - Redn1ght But since it's a vote-biased awards well, it will turn into a popularity contest by definition since the bands with highest votes win. :^)
15:21 - !J.O.O.E.! That's just my opinion of course, but the less of a popularity contest the awards is the better it is.
15:17 - !J.O.O.E.! Lol, I don't. Why pander to a profoundly weak album that already has more popularity than most other albums in then awards will ever have. Give the spotlight to some lesser known albums instead.
The guitar and drum work here really impresses me with near enough every song-particularly 'Feeding frenzy' and the brilliantly instrumental 'Ataxia II'. I wasn't really disappointed with any song here, though I seem to forget the existence of opener 'Terminal' and 'I blaspheme' simply because of their weaker instrumentation. For the most part though this is pretty damn solid.
