The GMA Awards 2013 increased its categories this year and as we could not broadcast through YouTube we decided to do it through a live chat setup.
Below are the final results (we have categories such as 'album of the year' that apply specifically to one nationality, these are not listed as were not part of the main awards):
This is the first time this has been done, but after careful consideration of all the releasesthat have been reviewed (and listened to) over the past months from the 1st May onwards, there are only 10 releases that have really stood out, here we go:
1. Cradle of Filth - 'Evermore Darkly'
2. The Dead Lay Waiting - 'Almost Heaven'
3. Design The Skyline - 'Nevaeh'
4. Amoral - 'Beneath'
5. Synarchy - 'Tear Up The World'
6. Crescent Lament - 'Behind The Lethal Deceit'
7. Nami - 'Fragile Alignments'
8. The Browning - 'Burn This World'
9. Despite My Deepest Fear - Dimensions
10. Merciless Fail - 'Forged In Black'
Each band has won themselves the chance to be interviewed for the website, from January onwards there will be 10 bands of the month and also at the end of each year, top 10 releases of the year.
