As many in our readership know, we love to showcase some different features every now and again here on the PiercingMetal.com website and every year I share both the nominations and the winners of the Grammy Awards when it comes to the Rock and Metal categories. This year, I decided to add the Canadian Juno Awards to the context of rundowns that get featured on my lifestyle website “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” and since they also have a Rock and Metal rundown I am adding that here for the very first time. Those who listen to a lot more than the stuff we focus on with this site, can peruse the full list by clicking HERE. Now let’s take a look at the winning artists for these Canadian awards.

Alternative Album of the Year:
WINNER – “Baby Teeth” Dizzy (Royal Mountain/Universal)
“Ken” Destroyer (Merge F.A.B./Merge)
“Dose Your Dreams” Fucked Up (Arts & Crafts Universal)
“TPC” Tokyo Police Club (Dine Alone Universal)

Presenting the Inaugural Edition of The Shockwave Festival

As readers of the PiercingMetal site and companion blog are very aware, we love to go to and cover concerts for the sake of larger awareness and just get a general kick out of seeing bands deliver their goods on the live stage. To me it’s very, very, exhilarating when it all comes down to it and I just find inspiration when I write about them or share photos from the performances with you all. That being said, it gives me great pleasure to announce another new festival that is launching this year for the summer of 2012. Presenting the Shockwave Festival (queue dramatic music).

The inaugural edition of the festival will feature both Fear Factory and Voivod as the apparent co-headliners and I guess depending on your level of excitement about each of them would gauge the level of anticipation in the overall event. Whatever the case may be it joins the ranks of the Rockstar Mayhem Fest, The Summer Slaughter Fest and also appears to be a good replacement for the no longer running Sounds Of The Underground Festival that ended in 2007. Check out the list of the rest of the performers on the event.

The Bands: Fear Factory, Voivod, Cattle Decapitation, Misery Index, Revocation, Havok, Dirge Within, Last Chance to Reason, Vildhjarta, The Browning, Forged in Flame.
