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...

Norwegian metallers Octavia Sperati have issued the following update:
At our last band meeting, Octavia Sperati decided to put band activities aside/take a break. We have reached a point where we have decided to put more time into other projects both within music, studies and families among other things for a while. We will all continue playing music, but we will take a break from the normal "Octavia life". If there are any news from any of us, we will of course let you know as soon as possible.
We are all looking forward to playing the lovely outdoor festival Lost Weekend near our headquarters Bergen on Friday, August 1st and will take the break after that. We are sorry to say that we will have to cancel the Dames Of Darkness festival in Birmingham in September.
Hope you all have a great great summer!
