So last year, I had decided to add the Canadian Juno Awards nominations and winners list to the content being presented over on my lifestyle website “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken”. Since they had a Metal and Rock category, I also decided to offer up an edited post of the winning artists here on PiercingMetal.com – This year I felt that it would be fun to also add those same category rundowns from the nomination process for those readers who might be fans of these artists. I’ve even added the Alternative category in for good measure. Take a look.

Alternative Album of the Year:
PUP, “Morbid Stuff”
Black Mountain, “Destroyer”
Foxwarren, “Foxwarren”
Mac DeMarco, “Here Comes the Cowboy”
Orville Peck, “Pony”

Metal/Hard Music Album of the Year:
Striker, “Play to Win”
The Agonist, “Orphans”
Kobra and the Lotus, “Evolution”
Lindsay Schoolcraft, “Martyr”
Single Mothers, “Through a Wall”

Rock Album of the Year:
The Glorious Sons, “A War on Everything”
Big Wreck, “..but for the sun”
The Dirty Nil, “Master Volume”
Headstones, “Peopleskills”
Sum 41, “Order in Decline”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So those are the nominated artists for the 2020 Juno Awards. Are some of your favorites in the running or did someone you really enjoy get left out of the mix? You can chime in down below if you have someone that you feel should be in place of another artist because that makes for some good content dialogue and I just love that. I’ll add that I didn’t know any of the Alternative artists but that’s not my musical game all that much. I was excited for the Metal category and seeing some favorites like Kobra, The Agonist and Ms. Schoolcraft who I’ve only recently begun journalistically focusing on. In the Rock category I am only up to speed on Big Wreck and Sum 41. Closing up I’ll direct you to the provided links so you can explore some of what these nominated artists are all about. You won’t have any direct say in the voting process of course but maybe you will click through and enjoy what you find. I opted to link to their Official Facebook pages with this summary because everyone is using that. I’ll be returning to this topic when the winners are announced so stay tuned for that rundown while the continual feed of other entertaining offerings keep on coming. I pointed out the notion how 2020 is going to be a fully stocked one based on what I know is coming and what we are planning on attending and I cannot wait to share it all with you. See you later.
