Metal Storm opened the usual, annual Awards: http://www.metalstorm.net/awards/index.php
. They're uite renowned and well made, there are many categories and you can vote either for a band/artist nominated or for whoever you like using the write-in option (of course it must fit the category).
You must be logged in and you can vote only once for ever artist/band and only one choice for every category.
Tristania is nominated as "Best Gothic Metal"! And I won't vote for them as "Best Surprise" because i always knew Rubicon would have been a masterpiece
Have fun with the poll!
