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..

Great to see Kai Hahto get musician of the year, he well and truly deserves that!
Thryce - 18.02.2007 at 17:13  
BTW: all nominees for "Band Of The Year" were:

Children Of Bodom
HIM
Rytmihäiriö
Amorphis
Enochian Crescent

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...
Rathma - 18.02.2007 at 19:32  
Well Bodom's last album was hillariously bad, but I guess they still deserve band of the year over HIM.
Keoren - 18.02.2007 at 19:32  
Kai Hahto \m/

My personal favourite drummer.

clearly Bodom had NO competition at all

Mainstream Band Of The Year probably, they don't stand a chance against Amorphis and why is there so few bands competing?
MUSIC? - 19.02.2007 at 13:44  
Yeah, six years ago.
Katatronik - 19.02.2007 at 15:02  
They deserve it, CoB are really fucking great, even with the last album!
I'm also happy for Kai and Marco...
~Nagash~ - 19.02.2007 at 21:50  
Hell yeah, COB rocks!!!They deserved it!!!But also did Marco and Kai, they are great!
Doc Godin - 21.03.2007 at 06:19  
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?
Shinigamy - 28.06.2008 at 01:55  
I was not suprised when i seen the news... They have proven them self realy and they deserved it :!
