Fair enough, why would you consider two bands that were the most popular in their respective genres on this site? Might as well include a bunch of bands nobody has heard of

Perhaps we liked those bands nobody heard of more than the popular ones. You can still vote those popular ones and by all means you're free to do so. Though we do urge you to listen to those "nobody has heard of" ones since you mind find something you like more than what you were going to vote for. You have an entire month to vote, no need to rush with your most familiar name.

Yeah, I'm just being a smart ass. I've already listened to some of the albums I've never heard of, nothing has really jumped out yet, but as you say there's a whole month to vote.
And also as somebody else said, it really was a bad year for thrash from the "popular" bands, so I'm happy to listen to some stuff from the more underground

Which genre best fits Obscura? I want to vote for Diluvium but not sure which one it should be in as there's no tech death section...

Well, they indeed haven't done anything drama-worthy (sauna crowdfund was 2017)... and maybe that is drama indeed!

You had a whole year ffs. No thanks we didnt nominate all those albums because we didnt listen to them, instead we right away nominated what we reviewed.

And boy, I don't remember past awards having so many criminal nominees.

Don't mean to offend you in any way, but I can't take any comment of yours about things we've missed very seriously. The stuff you like has an average of 4 votes and a 5.5 rating and I don't think this is because everyone else on the site is completely ignorant but you.

That said there are way too many albums in the nominations that we haven't reviewed. I don't have the time to count right now but they must be more than half so your argument is not valid to begin with.
