How can the latest Volbeat be in any way even remotely as good as The Architect Of Lies? This also makes me cry!

Awards are always jokes. A Kid Hereafter In The Grinding Light kicks ass live though! I actually met him after a Mike Patton show... ehm... nevermind.

Death Magnetic beat Watershed for Best International Album?

Slipknot was nominated for Best International Metal Album?

That category, alone, is full of fail.

The Danish Metal Awards have always been a joke. They always go for the well known bands and normally doesn't even nominate great bands
benvolent - 16.11.2008 at 12:19  
That's just hilarious! But, well, there needs to be some pathetic background, when they give Volbeat a prize!!
symphony theater - 16.11.2008 at 15:26  
There are some bands that i dont even know them.
Angel_Lament - 16.11.2008 at 15:26  
What the hell is this???!!!
Who are these bands??? and who is Volbeat????!!!

As a dane i'm horribly ashamed of the nominees at the danish "metal" awards. But it must be seen in the light that "metal" has become fashionable in Denmark. Bands like tokyo hotel, volbeat and Nightwish are featured on the radio as well on tv frequently. It's my oppinion that the awards arent arranged by dedicated metal fans, but people trying to make a profit on a hype.
It's truly sad, and i hope, that with this post that people on the dedicated metalstorm website wont believe the danish metal culture to be this plain:).
DoomGuard - 16.11.2008 at 21:23  
Fail...all i have to
DrunkenFuck - 16.11.2008 at 21:39  
All these bands are fucking hardcore bands. It makes no sense.

I'm from Denmark, the scene has been like this for years... It's sickening.
Rupert - 16.11.2008 at 21:54  
Shouldn't Textures be in there somewhere? Jeez.

RhaegarTargaryen - 17.11.2008 at 20:23  
Pyramaze ? Mercenary ? Manticora ? Mnemic ? Raunchy ? WTF

Ok I guess this is same like MTV metal awards.. metal for the 'people' lol.

What the hell is this???!!!
Who are these bands??? and who is Volbeat????!!!

Well, if you don't know them, check them out! That's pop-metal, but nevertheless it's well made and funny. The guys are a stagewonder imo and the voice of Micheal Poulsen is pure Elvis! Don't know the new album yet, but their best is probably 'Rock the rebelMetal the devil'. Good music, nearly no seriousity.. these awards: don't take them serious!
