Another year, another awards edition. 2015 certainly shaped up to be eventful in the world of metal music. From Black Sabbath's disbandment announcement to Burgerkill's and Jasad's UK debut and from Iron Maiden's global success with their latest album 'Book of Souls' to ChthoniC's Freddy Lim standing up in the political world.
The 2015 GMA Awards received a total of 8,160 votes from all corners of the globe and needless to say whilst some categories were dominated throughout, some were fought to the very end with one category coming close at the dying seconds before voting closed.
'Metal releases of the year' will come in the new year when the next global compilation will be out, but for now here are the results of the 3rd GMA Awards edition (2015).
