PiercingMetal Thoughts: I was surprised about some of these winners over the other nominees since they are mostly bands that I haven’t managed to listen to yet for some reason or another. Oh well, more groups to research means more website content at the end of the day. What did you think of the winners of the APMA’s this year? Did your favorites win big or were they left in the hall? Chime in down below because it’s always great to hear what you think. Until we meet again my friends.
