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!

The Metal Storm Awards 2010 Team

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


All ten there are VASTLY superior to the mdicore new Dimmu Borgir album. But it's always fun to come across the first hurt fanboy

You think it should be in it. All of the staff/elites points added together suggested it didn't deserve a place in the nominations

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)

i am a lot into death metal but i didnt discover many great new bands to be honest though i really like searching for young bands. maybe it's a matter of time...

on the other hand you are right that i was talking mainly about the big names! i forgot to mention that...

Whahaha!

I'm fine by nominations, I guess. I haven't listened to new (or any) metal albums for most of the year and some 40% of what I've listened to (or liked) has not made it to the list of whatever subgenre that might be, but I see MS Awards as finding out (relatively) new and good music so there's no way I should feel disappointed, I don't care much for the results.

Are you serious? Do you know personally the staff to claim they are closedminded? Even their favorite bands don't show it.

And for your information... Dimmu Borgir now days is far from being Black Metal. And don't go with the easy "you're so closeminded" that is pathetic. Especially because objective peopel clould clearly say that the latest Dimmu Borgir is far from Black Metal.

I wish the fanboys dont dominate and vote with some sensibility!!!


There's a simple way to stop fanboys from dominating this site and every other site ever made, where people can vote on recreational stuff, but it would be difficult to achieve. Here's what needs to change: you CANNOT vote on anything, without writing a SUBSTANCIVE REVIEW. And no review will be accepted, if isn't well-written.

No more fanboy domination. Will never happen, but as Vezzy put it: I can dream, damn it!

mate this could be awful. are you sure you'd like do write 5 or 10 little reviews just to be able to vote? at least for me (one reason is that i dont speak great english) it is not THAT fair. something else to do is that: the members of the site GAIN some more important RIGHTS by time and not from the moment they are registring. such as: MS AWARDS VOTING (many bands come out to claim proudly that they participate or win here). or even generall voting. specially for MS voting it could depend on the "Community points" each member has and generally his contribution or "right behavior" in the site...

ideas, ideas, ideas...

Well, yes that would be unfair, which is why I said it would be difficult to achieve, because the idea of hiring translators for every language in the world is absurd and there would be tons of other difficulties as well. It cannot be done, it won't be done. But it would be oh so nice.

The problem with this is that staff/elite members abuse the voting system too. Most of them don't, but some of them are just as whiny and bitchy about bands they think are overrated than your average fanboy.

Ever read the comments or seen the votes on albums by a certain Dutch prog multi-instrumentalist ? If no, check them out. This is all the hints you're getting though.

If giving an album a 1, just because it's not to your taste (knowing very well it doesn't deserve just 1) is not vote abuse, then what is? Isn't giving albums a 1 just to get their rating down vote abuse by definition? Also, "some people get a spontaneous hard-on" as an insult at people who like something you don't is rude at best and trolling at worst. That's not an abuse of power, it's an abuse of the comment section, it's being stupid, it is being a whiny, bitchy hater and it was written by a staff member. Which doesn't mean the staff sucks, it just means their human too, which was my only point to begin with.

meh. nearly a quarter of your 81 votes cast are perfect 10's... so i'm not entirely sure what makes you level-headed enough to disparage the tastes of others.

some people might despise that artist to the same extent you love him.

i think it's middle of the road plastic. skilled musician, boring work.

and this off-topic is done. this is about the MSAs. you can keep on bitching in another thread if you want. find somewhere appropriate.

And your own comment is a perfect example of imperfection on the staff's behalf too. I never accused any staff member of "abusing their power". The only reason I can think of why you'd misinterpret what I said, is because you took my words personally, which you had no reason at all to do. Please, try to be nice and set an example to us regular users of MS
