The only band that I can comfortably call 'post-death' is Flourishing since that is a mixture of death metal and post-hardcore


Ulcerate is another obvious one though considering their big influences from bands like Neurosis.

"Aquilus - Griseus" (in the best bm suggestions). Mistakes do happen, but it's worth recalling that we are voting for the best 2013 - albums.

it's a write-in vote, so not a mistake on the part of MS, since it wasn't nominated. But I have seen way older albums being written in than one that is 2 years old. Maybe the person wrote it in thought it was from this year becauuse the vinyl version of it was released in 2013?

In Thrash, an idiot voted for Megadeth - Super Collider and another idiot voted for Metallica - Ride The Lightning. LMAO

Who the fuck put Slayer - Jeff Hanneman's death in Drama category?

No, seriously what you want? Do you want me to come over your house and strangulate everyone? No, seriously that wasn't funny at all. At fucking all. No, seriously I'm not acting like Eric Cartman out here. No respect for great musician. I wish an ugly fat cow fall over you(yeah, YOU!!).

I totally agree with you.

This is not a mistake on the part of MS, of course. I didn't say that. I just saw a some person's mistake, that stand out. The fact that the vinyl version was released in 2013 doesn't qualify "Griseus", for sure. But I'm not sure about e.g. digitally remastered albums, made a years later. Is this can be nominated? I think it would be a bit strange. Especially if the album received votes in previous years. How is it ?

Drama doesn't mean comedy, damn. That's an entirely different thing that here on MS almost every year "Drama" is translated to a funny play of some idiot metalheads...
I did vote for that too, it's fuckin' tragic.

Did you guys think about an additional category for album of the year, possibly comprised of the winners of genre categories? I think it would be a nice addition. Also I noted now voting for the best cover song and video that there is no best song category. Although I can see some reasons why not include these two categories, I would like to hear what you think about it. IMO it would be interesting to see what was Metalstormers most favourite album and song, despite not adding too much to the overall value of the Awards.

I don't really think that having a category for the best album of the year would be a good idea. Some genres are obviously more popular and album of the year in that regard would be definitely from theme. Assume that staff nominate a drone doom record and a melodic death record for album of the year. The winner would be certainly that melodic death metal album regardless of the quality.
Also, for best song category, again I think it's not a good idea. First of all, on average every album might have 8 songs and it makes it hard for staff to chose 10 songs as nominates. Moreover, since this category would not be restricted to any certain genre, beside the problem I mentioned previously, the staff would have to chose like 10 songs from entire spectrum of metal music, which in my opinion is not applicable.
Pazdzioch - 08.02.2014 at 15:25  
But honestly the staffers should choose MS AOTY - it would be fun to see who won...

Was there such a thing in the past? For example: "The Maniacal Vale" is a staff pick of 2008

The staff will release what there votes looked like shortly after the other results are published. They vote completely separately from us.

I think the progressive metal and Gothenburg metal categories are the hardest choices to make for me this year. There are even write-ins in the progressive that I'm tempted to vote for or write-in myself. I already voted, but I might change it still.

Something like that would have to be write in votes only. The album one is a good idea, but the song one mightn't work too well cause the winner probably would only have 10-20 votes. There'd be a thousand songs with just 1 or 2 votes each. I'd be really surprised if one song managed to get 100+ votes.

Who did you vote for in the prog category? I'm just curious
Spirit Molecule - 10.02.2014 at 11:56  
Listening to the bands from the sludge and post metal categories. Nice!

Generic award comment: WHY ISN'T INTRONAUT ON THE LIST!! You MS stuff suck, and have no clue what is good and what's not

Currently my vote is for Haken, but I'm tempted by almost all of the other nominees, and I'm thinking about writing in A World Torn by Divinity Compromised. It really is a very strong category this year. Have you made your pick yet for progressive?

By the way, I don't know if this was mentioned or not already, but I'm surprised Zemial's Nykta didn't get nominated (in thrash or prog). Write-in vote time!

I voted for Scale The Summit actually but I could have easily voted for 7 others. I just have a soft spot for that album and the guys deserve the vote, especially because sometimes they are overlooked.

That's one of the one's I could have voted for too. I love Scale the Summit ever since I saw them touring for their 2nd album when they played with BtBAM, Cynic & Devon Townsend. That was an amazing show. I was hooked from that point on. Like I said, this was a great year for progressive metal and my vote may very well change before the end of the month.

I can't think of anything musically off hand for biggest letdown. Can I vote for the PNG rugby league team?
Darth Revan - 18.02.2014 at 19:56  
Dethklok didn't get nominated this year oddly enough. I say that because "The Doomstar Requiem" got a glowing review, I'm not the only one vouching for the toon band that released a goddamn musical this year (Speaking of, it's awesome).

Cool - Avatarium acknowledges the nomination for Best Doom Metal Album category in the 2013 MS Awards!!
M C Vice - 28.02.2014 at 10:49  
Comments section's a bit quiet this year.
Warman - 28.02.2014 at 11:07  
So I've placed my votes. I always wait till the end of the month so I can hear as many of the nominations as possible. Found some new good stuff which I actually ended up voting for. But in most of the categories I gave my vote to the stuff I heard before the awards opened.

BTW, I always love how every year, out of some of the nominations, I stumble across some of the worst fucking metal albums I've ever heard. Every year there's at least 2-3 albums which makes me think that there's some guys on the staff which I clearly don't have a matching music taste with.
BloodMusic - 01.03.2014 at 09:33  
Thanks very much for voting for Kauan! Great to see our band take 2nd place!
