CoB won.. How surprising I mean there are lot of really good bands who would really deserve the award and CoB are not bad but they are nowadays really lame. The other awards were rightfully given though..

Ha, Kalmah blows Cobs new release out of the water and sh**s on it furthermore. Not surprising they won, they are just more popular.

I would like to see Bodom do what Eternal Tears of Sorrow can... Also Floor Jansen's power, and operatic/rock vocal styles blow Marco's out of the water...

Well Bodom's last album was hillariously bad, but I guess they still deserve band of the year over HIM.

Mainstream Band Of The Year probably, they don't stand a chance against Amorphis and why is there so few bands competing?

I know this is old news but its new to me so im gonna go ahead and post my 2 cents.

They shouldnt have one any award this year, maybe like...3 or 4 years ago, but first of all there latest album was disapointing and did it even come out in 2006? so why are they getting an award again?
