Someone here must like "Lil Pump & Kanye West - I Love It" an awful lot because he/she has put it as a write-in in every category.

As is probably expected there is a lot of negativity about the nominations in an awards list. I would like to say on a positive note it is one of the best end of the year metal awards lists out there year in an year out. Everybody else's lists just copy each other and put the albums in different order. Being able to vote on a serious list is pretty awesome. Every year I learn more new music from the Metalstorm list than any other place and I am always looking for new music.
Not really a negative, more of an aside. What is up with YOB not getting nominated? There seems to be some strong dislike surrounding YOB on Metalstorm. Does anybody know why that is? They are from my home town and I am about the same age so I have ulterior motives. The fact that they were on everybody else's lists is enough for me but just wondering.

Their 2011 was staff picked with thumbs up by several of the staff. The last two albums got 8 for a review by staffers. All their albums from 2004 onward have average ratings of at least an 8.
Yeah, a lot of "strong dislike". I wouldn't have put it on doom metal but on stoner though. I enjoyed it enough to have had it on the awards but oh well!

I changed "hate" to "strong dislike" because i didn't want to overshoot it, lol. I just remember over the years reading some negative comments. Admittedly, their songwriting is not perfect, but nobody can replicate the tone and mood. They are considered pretty influential to the genres doom, stoner, sludge here on the west coast U.S. I wrote them in for Sludge, Stoner immediately but they walk that line between the three about as well as anybody. Anyway, not trying to be contentious. It is an extremely minor gripe that probably should have gone unsaid but I was curious. They are one of my fav's although I haven't rated any of their albums a 10 primarily because of song structure.
