07:14 - ScreamingSteelUS My top choice was Persefone's "Spiritual Migration." Next was In Vain's new album, and after that I couldn't decide between Amon Amarth and Children of Bodom. Omnium Gatherum's I liked.
06:31 - AngelofDeth also think it was the fact that not much else came out that was good. Beyond is Omnium's best yet so I gave my vote to them but damn it still not that great an album
05:52 - deadone My problem goes down to individual albums where songs blur into one tedious dirge
05:51 - Unhealer Wonder what would have happened if the staff hadn't nominated them. Would they still win as write-ins?
05:38 - ScreamingSteelUS I wouldn't go that far, but I agree they can be repetitive. For me, it's one of those cases of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." "Twilight of the Thunder God" may be my favorite, though.
05:36 - deadone I've never liked them that much, other than Twilight of the Thunder God. Their albums come across as repetitive and monotonous and all sound remarkebly similar. AC/DC and Cannibal Corpse seem like Jethro Tull in LSD on comparison.
05:29 - ScreamingSteelUS I think it's because they are just one of the biggest names in the awards. I love Amon Amarth, but "Deceiver of the Gods" was tied for third place in that category for me.
