Monster Entertainment Awards 7I have hosted this award post for seven years now and I never fails to bring enjoyment to me for a couple of reasons. One of the reasons being that each album that wins gets a review for the album of the week so that will be exciting for the next month. The second reason is that we get to celebrate and vote for what we believe was the best rock album of the previous calendar year and we voted for the best of 2017 and I have the results for you guys. Marilyn Manson seems to always be a big winner as he won album of the year for The Pale Emperor, but this year he takes home the award for Best Rock Album for Heaven Upside Down as well as Rock Single and Rock Video Of The Year as well. There is going to be a lot of arguments over the winner of the album of the year, but Link Park really did put out a solid effort with One More Light. Code Orange came out of nowhere and defeated some giants of metal to take home the Metal Album Of The Year award while Morbid Angel claims their first win in the Extreme Metal Album Of The Year with Kingdoms Disdained. Here are some of the other winners: Rock Single Of The Year: KILL4ME by Marilyn Manson, Rock Video Of The Year: We Know Where You F*cking Live by Marilyn Manson, Metal Single Of The Year: No Lives Matter by Body Count, Metal Video Of The Year: Nuclear Alchemy by Watain.  Check out the rest of the winners below:

Monster Entertainment Awards 7So, it has taken us a little while to get this out and we apologize for the wait. Some things have changed and we have decided that we are not going to run the Pedal To The Metal Tournament this year for lack of participation and scheduling conflicts. That is also why we have extended the voting process for this because we have been so far behind that we are starting to catch up now. You now have until April 1st to cast your vote for your favorite wrestlers, albums, and movies. We have a lot of great categories and some categories have already seen the voting process begin on Twitter. Nevertheless, we hope that you guys take the time to vote and to enjoy it because it is up to you to decide who wins and you can vote once an hour on every category. So, have some fun and spread the word.

 

Monster Entertainment Awards 7I want to take the time to apologize to everyone for the wait, but we have been hard at work at some things for you guys which includes our March Madness style tournament. It’s hard to believe that we have been doing this awards thing known as The Monster Entertainment Awards for seven years now as 2018 marks the seventh annual presentation. A couple of things have changed however and you’ll notice that below, but each category will be handled by a different blog as we are working with the 365 Movies in 365 Days Challenge blog and Mr. X’s Punch Out blog. We here at Moshpits and movies will be handling the music side of things while 365 handles the films and Mr. X handles the wrestling side. As always, you are going to have a certain amount of time to vote for what album you loved more, what movie you thought was film of the year, and what wrestler you thought kicked ass. When all the votes are tallied up, we will present to you all of the winners that YOU chose because it’s all about the people. This award post has always been about you getting involved and deciding who is the best of the year and that is the way we intend to keep it. You will have until March 13Th at 10PM Eastern time to decide what is best so get involved and voice your opinion.

aI want to remind everyone that the Grammy’s do not make a band legitimate or not even though they have tried cleaning up mistake after mistake. The Grammy’s tend to drop the ball when the nods come in for Best rock song, etc. In past years, we have seen the committee get lazy and pick only bands that had been around for decades with cover songs as the songs they have chosen for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance Vocal or Instrumental to Jethro Tull instead of Metallica. One of the biggest embarrassments for the academy was the 1989 awarding of Best Metal Performance We have also seen them drop the ball as far as what deserves to be considered for Best Rock Album, but all of that has changed with this years nominees. This year, it seems like things have gotten better with the academy and that they actually woke up. Bands like August Burns Red, Body Count, Code Orange, Mastodon, and Meshuggah were nominated for Best Metal Performance. Metallica received two nods at the show as they were nominated for Best Best Rock Album (Hardwired… To Self Destruct) and Best Rock Song (Atlas, Rise!). Other bands that received multiple nods were Nothing More (Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song, and Best Rock Performance), Mastodon (Best Metal Performance and Best Rock Album),  and the Foo Fighters (Best Rock Song, Performance). This could be a sign of things to come, but then again this is the academy we are talking about here. The award show airs live on January 28, 2018 on CBS and check out the nods below:

Best Metal Performance
August Burns Red – Invisible Enemy
Body Count – Black Hoodie
Code Orange – Forever
Mastodon – Sultan’s Curse
Meshuggah – Clockworks
