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.
Hellfest is fast approaching once again, and this year we have two weekend tickets to give away to lucky winners. With a new festival site and another fantastic line-up, you'd be crazy to miss out on your opportunity to win yourself a free weekend ticket.
All you have to do is head over to the contest page and answer the three questions correctly for your name to be entered into the draw.
The contest will close on the 30th April, so good luck and hopefully we'll see you there!
A lot of my friends now know. Thanks a lot Metal Storm! I was afraid it was going to be yet another festival I'll be a lone wolf in, but now one of my friends might win and come!
Speaking of people coming, are there any Metal Stormers there who would be able to bring along a Metal Storm t-shirt? I'd love to buy one and hang out with some MS people out there. Perhaps some objective tasters instead of all the fanatics and fanboys there (Idk tbh about this in Hellfest, but in Sonisphere each guy had tunnel vision x.x).
