The Metal Storm Awards 2008 are officially opened!

As you may have noticed, there has been a huge banner on the frontpage for a couple of hours now. Click on it to discover our annual Award fest. Vote for your favourite album in each category and hope for it to win! The voting will close at the end of February, so you have plenty of time to check out any albums you have not heard yet. You might even discover a great new band/album. If you feel the need to discuss these Awards, check this thread.

Happy listening, judging and voting!

When will the MS awards be?

Although I've been listening to new albums through the whole year, now that I see what else was released I really feel I've missed it all
But the few I actually know amongst the winners are well-deserved. Good job.

Finally. BTW the "Write-in votes" in Best Drama category makes me laugh.

Same here. Actually I'm quite shocked about it; it almost means I haven't listened to the music all year, cause I don't know a huge number of bands there.

The good news - I have a month to make up leeway.

Hi, gang. If you are going to write an album in, please be sure it was released in 2008. Apparently some people have had problems separating albums that were released in 2008 from albums that were released in 2005.

I realize it might be difficult for some to process that the MS 2008 awards are for albums that were released in 2008, i mean just because 2008 is in the title of the awards doesn't mean we should expect our posters to figure the 2008 awards apply to 2008 releases.

Worst year ever !!!!(in Comic Book Guy voice), for power metal. Apart from Serenity of course, good album, otherwise a let down, remember Avantasia, I'd like to forget.

When are the MS awards?
kayla - 02.02.2009 at 07:44  
Interesting nominess. The Progressive category might require some relistening but overall 2008 definitely wasn't the greatest year . . . hmm who to vote for.
