It’s time to see what you voted as the best (and worst) of 2010!
Winner: Iron Maiden
Lou’s Note: Iron Maiden probably wouldn’t have been my first choice for band of the year (you should all know by now who my vote went to! ). but no-one can deny that they are deserving of this title. Plus, “The Final Frontier” is an awesome album.
Winner: Iron Maiden – “The Final Frontier”
ZORORMR – “Kval”
Black Label Society – “Order of the Black”
Avenged Sevenfold – “Nightmare”
Halcyon Way – “Building The Towers”
Dimmu Borgir – “Abrahadabra”
God Dethroned – “Under The Sign of the Iron Cross”
Lou’s Note: You guys must really like Iron Maiden! But, as I said before, “The Final Frontier” is a great album. Also, I’m pleased to see ZORORMR and God Dethroned in that list too …oh, and Dimmu Borgir… and Halcyon Way… and BLS…
Winner: Live Evil Festival
Lou’s Note: Well, I can’t argue with that. I managed to get along to the Saturday of Live Evil (thanks to Dave & Jo!) and it was awesome!
Winner: Black Label Society – “Overlord”
Lou’s Note: “Overlord” is a fantastic video and is definitely worthy of your votes
Winner: Halcyon Way – “Building The Towers”
Lou’s Note: A brilliant cover for a brilliant album!
Winner (or should that be “Loser”?): Avenged Sevenfold – “Nightmare”
Lou’s Note: “Nightmare” seems to be 2010′s Marmite album – some of you love it, others hate it
Winner: Corey Taylor – “X-M@$”
Lou’s Note: A fine choice! Although I did also like this suggestion: “Lou singing “merry x-mas””
And there you have it! If you don’t like the results and you didn’t vote… well, that’s just tough!
Maybe next year, eh?
