Metal Storm Awards 2010 - Voting Open!!!


Dear Metalstormers,

The 2010 Metalstorm Awards are here!

Throughout the year, a dedicated team at the Metal Storm HQ donates countless hours making the definitive list of all the worthwhile albums in every possible metal subgenre released throughout the year. In January, amidst heated arguments, we prune this list to an exclusive grouping of what we believe to be truly the best and most influential albums released. Our team also spends insane amounts of time preparing descriptions and making sure each and every nominee's music is easy to access and listen to.

This year, we're introducing the new Clandestine Cut Of The Year category. We're very excited to be promoting some of these fresh and hungry artists based on their excellent demos and EPs. Please take some time to check out this section.




Please don't ignore all this effort - check out all nominees before voting. Please vote for the best, not for the most well-known! You can cast your votes HERE. Voting will be open all month; winners will be announced March 1st.


Finally, don't forget to tell all of your friends to register at Metal Storm and help make these awards the most luxurious and definitive metal awards out there! Please feel free to post links to the awards on your blogs, twitter pages and social networks.

And most importantly - don't forget to have fun! 2010 was a year rich in awesome releases, here is your chance to discover some of them!

great advise, but difficult that it will happen, still i try to listen to every record on my favorite subgenres, but i end up just listening to the most well-known of the other subgenres.

Well, im going to stop writing and start listening

Can't make up my mind for the best surprise - there have been a few or the biggest disappointment.

Do us Kamelot fans a favour and vote Poetry For The Boyzone for biggest disappointment, maybe Kamelot will come to their senses and crawl out of the black a-hole of mediocrity that they have sunken into.

I couldn't care less about Kamelot's music. It's not even worth voting them as disappointing just for fun.

In order to be disappointed about something, one has got to have some expectations about that something. That's why I can't vote in that category, I had no expectations. For example the last Maiden album was not that great, it was good but not great but I didn't have high or any expectations so i can't say I'm disappointed. Same with the last Nevermore (which is an OK album, but I've heard so much better from them). Even the last James Labrie grew on me, I initially disliked it, I was surprised if not shocked by those screams and shouts but I got used to them.

I'll listen to as much as I can but really I'm just going to vote on the albums I enjoyed and listened to the most from last year. So what if I voted Lawless Darkness over Axioma Ethica Odini, I liked it better.

After checking out the nominees (because i've not listened to SO MANY 2010 albums) one thing i can say for sure: 2010 was a shit-year for metal.. at least 2011 sounds promising with many new releases to come out...

I would say 2010 was a great year for metal. It was only shit if you went for big names. But delve into the true underground and it was stupnedously good (especially in death metal, which is not shown too much in the nominees but still some gems there)

yes, really if you think it's the best then use the write-in option

Thrash metal set is very impressive, but black metal?
It's so obvious, that this list was made only for Dimmu Borgir haters and it should be deleted because it's not objective.
I won't be surprised, if new and very solid DB effort will win by 'write-in' votes and it will be punish fist for some listeners
