Thing is with these awards is some of the nominees do deserve an award for a category, such as Anthrax with Worship Music, but they won't get it. The best guitarist category at least has mostly worthwhile entries, the only ones there I wouldn't rate very highly is FFDP, and no, I'm not saying BVB are any good, their guitarist just happens to have some good lead chops. Best drummer has to go to Tomas from Meshuggah, but it won't. My main qualm with these award ceremonies isn't the entries being shit, usually they're not THAT bad, just on the more mainstream end of the spectrum, it's the fact the nominees are always the same.

Most of the time they nominate whoever they think is going to attract the most attention. There is no logic to picking FFDP or BVB in any of those categories. Their players aren't that good, their music isn't that good, and neither of them are at all respected.

But they're both cool as fuck with the kids, so they both bring in the numbers.

The problem is that these aren't awards to celebrate greatness in the field, they're awards to make a quick buck.

This, and Tool for best live band, but that probably won't happen either. The rest of this thing is pure horseshit.

All of them were jokes but these are the 2 categories that I have a problem with. It seems to me that James Durbin being up for best vocalist is somewhat of a joke but he's seriously the best candidate on that list. And you've got to be fuckin' kidding me with that dedicated fans list. HIM and Evanescence haven't been relevant in years, I've never heard of Falling in Reverse but i'm going to assume they blow, Asking Alexandria and Black Veil Brides will be forgotten within 2 years, so I hate to say it but Avenged Sevenfold is the best choice.

I know Revolver has always sucked but didn't it used to be kind of a metal magazine? Now it's basically one of those teen mags that always have Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez on the cover.

I hope Punk wins this, at least he has the hair for it

Why is releasing an album after three years considered to be a "comeback" in the case of Dream Theater? Not sure if trolling or just dumb.

But yeah the downward spiral for Revolver had begun with articles like "Hottest chicks in metal" and what not, so this wasn't really much of a surprise.

Having said so, on their website this list is being universally panned. So I wonder where are the "fans" to whom all this pandering was intended towards in the first place.

The only two actual comebacks on that list are Van Halen and Ministry, and the Ministry one hasn't actually happened yet, it's just been announced he's going to tour.

Well I can understand Anthrax being put there since it was their first record in seven years and it was also a return to form for them but doesn't every other band put out albums after three years?

Its just laughable how there's so much wrong with that list.
