Archive for the ‘Awards’ Category

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:

sixth-annual-monster-entertainment-awardsI hope that all of you are excited because since 2016 is finally behind us, it’s time to look to the future and celebrate the best of the year’s past. With that being said, it is time to announce that the Sixth Annual Monster Entertainment Awards is here and it’s going to be a special one because we’ve added categories almost everywhere. We are also once again teaming up with MRXPunchOut as they will be bringing the wrestling side to the awards and they have also added some new categories too like Tag Team of the Year, Match Of The Year, and Tag Team Match of the Year for starters. Over here at Moshpits and Movies, we have added Rock Music Video of the Year, Metal Music Video of the year, Rock Single of the Year, and Metal Single of the Year. There is also a new category in Soundtrack of the year that joins all of our other categories so it’s safe to say that this year’s award show is going to rock. We will be announcing all the contenders for each category very soon, it was a huge year so there is a lot to comb through before we make it official. So stay tuned for more information as it becomes available, but for right have a happy new year and hopefully 2017 is a lot better than 16.

monster entertainment awards 5Ever since the start of the Monster Entertainment Awards, I have always loved leaving the votes up to the people because you end up getting surprised at some of the winners. Obviously, there are those films or albums that you expect to win and they end up winning, but that is expected (also applies to the music side). One of the biggest surprises in my opinion came in the album of the year category, Rock album of the year, and remake of the year to name a few. I really expected Star Wars: The Force Awakens to take movie of the year, but again you always get surprised when the people vote. I want to send a shout out to all the fans of rock band Bobaflex for banding together and getting Anything That Moves as the Rock Album Of The Year because that is what it’s all about when we say fan participation. I also want to send a shout out to anyone that took the time to visit the blog and vote as well. As usual, I am going to review all of the winners on the music side for the album of the week category, but there will only be two (we have already reviewed two of the winners). So, without further ado, here are all the winners:
