This seems like a proper forum to share this hilarious news:
Juno Awards Adds New Category: Metal/Hard Music Album of the Year
As Canada’s Juno Awards return to Ottawa next April, for the first time since 2003, fans may notice something new. The Canadian Academy for Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) announced on Wednesday that they have added a new category to the award show. For the first time ever, an award will be handed out to the Metal/Hard Music Album of the year.
In their press release, CARAS explained that,
“This new category is an award to honour artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the Canadian recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position. Eligible albums include metal, metalcore, hardcore, heavy rock, thrash metal, death metal and their respective sub- genres including (but not limited to) nu-metal, power metal, grindcore, extreme metal, industrial metal, viking metal, folk metal, doom metal, gothic metal, speed metal, and sludge metal.”
My favorite is still Dimmu Borgir. I know they're kinda old now, and maybe more metal than black metal.. I don't listen to black metal that much, but I do listen to quite a lot of hardcore, emocore, rock, punk, metalcore, heavy rock etc.
I know this is off topic, but I remember a couple of years ago that a dude from a Norwegian black metal band came out as gay.. I was like WTF?!?! now I've seen everything.. lol! It's definitely not many out people in that genre, but I think it's great that he came out!
Anyway.. back to topic.. this is my favorite song from Dimmu with Norwegian lyrics, but again, it's more metal/heavy metal than black metal:
