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.
15:00 - Redn1ght Hmm... I don't remember bands that use breakdowns well in recent memory that aren't Theocracy.. Seems like they either overuse them or can't make them fit the other parts of the songs melodically...

I like more the concept of the first one, the alternative looks boring. But the first one has a weird combinations of colours in my opinion... and a "fractal path" at the bottom that reminds me to Windows Player
