PiercingMetal Thoughts: That’s some cool list isn’t it? I see a number of artists that I am enjoying listed in the nominations but with a hectic to do list I will only mention artists like Rob Zombie, Hayley of Paramore and The BVB. What about you readers? Are some of your favorites listed up above and did they get the nominations correct? Were any notables left out that are sending you to the Interwebs in a fit of rage to complain about it? Chime in down below because this kind of feature is still relatively new but will likely continue now that the website is 100% in WordPress now and I’d like to keep it as different as possible if that is a doable thing. Alright, catch you next time and before you ask this question – YES I will be featuring the winners list when the awards show is over and they are all listed on the website linked below.
