07:14 - ScreamingSteelUS My top choice was Persefone's "Spiritual Migration." Next was In Vain's new album, and after that I couldn't decide between Amon Amarth and Children of Bodom. Omnium Gatherum's I liked.
06:31 - AngelofDeth also think it was the fact that not much else came out that was good. Beyond is Omnium's best yet so I gave my vote to them but damn it still not that great an album
05:52 - deadone My problem goes down to individual albums where songs blur into one tedious dirge
05:51 - Unhealer Wonder what would have happened if the staff hadn't nominated them. Would they still win as write-ins?
05:38 - ScreamingSteelUS I wouldn't go that far, but I agree they can be repetitive. For me, it's one of those cases of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." "Twilight of the Thunder God" may be my favorite, though.
05:36 - deadone I've never liked them that much, other than Twilight of the Thunder God. Their albums come across as repetitive and monotonous and all sound remarkebly similar. AC/DC and Cannibal Corpse seem like Jethro Tull in LSD on comparison.
05:29 - ScreamingSteelUS I think it's because they are just one of the biggest names in the awards. I love Amon Amarth, but "Deceiver of the Gods" was tied for third place in that category for me.
Rob Zombie will be filming their first ever live DVD in Texas at the forthcoming Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival dates on August 3rd and 4th in Houston and Dallas respectively. The band has been touring in North America and presenting their new album Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor.
Says Zombie: "Come to the Houston and Dallas shows in your best Zombie gear and we will get you in the movie! Remember the crazier you are... the more screen time you will get!"
In other Rob Zombie projects, he will focus on the infamous and bloody rivalry between the Bruins and the Philadelphia Flyers when he begins filming his hockey biopic movie later in the year. This will be his first foray from horror movies. Speaking to Inside Track at the Boston Herald Zombie said: "I was always a hockey fan. I loved the Boston Bruins as a kid, especially in the 70s. That's when I was most fanatical — when Bobby Orr and Phil Esposito were there. But I loved the Flyers too, even though they seemed like evil guys."
