I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the winners. Good job guys!

But I do have a question. Since when is Dark Tranquillity alternative metal? laugh.gif

Yeah, Lots of great music there. My guitar teacher's band (Insania) was entered in the heavy/power category but didn't win. Sabaton is definitely a worthy winner there though, awesome band.

I usually hate these lists, but i have to agree with this, even without Tarja there live shows are unrivaled.

There are always a certain amount of controversy around these types of awards. In this case the bands were voted by the fans. And if you go read the forums of metal sites, a lot of people are arguing that the voters didn't know what they were doing.

If it were a panel then people would probably accuse them of being elitists. There is unforutnately no way around this. But I think that the American Music Awards have probably the best solution. Instead of "Best" this or that... They have "Favorite...". This is a lot harder to debate. It is obviously the favorite since it got the most votes laugh.gif
