After one month of voting, nearly 6,000 votes cast and countless sharing across all social media platforms by us and nominees alike, the time has come to announce the winners of the GMA Awards 2019.
But before that happens, there will be a change to how the nominees are cast. For 10 months of the year we will be running a series of rounds from which the 10 finalists will be recognised for the annual event.
The system will work as thus: nominees elected in the month of January are voted for in February... February nominees voted in March, etc and finishes with nominees in October being voted for in November - the finalists will then be voted for across the month of December and into early January 2021; finishing 8th January 2021.
Now that's put out into the open, we can finally reveal the winners of the GMA Awards 2019.

Lelahell releases the new official video 'Paramnesia', the first track from the upcoming album named Alif.
The new album was recorded at Fermata Studio (Algiers), mixed and mastered at the famous Hertz Recording Studio (Biylystock, Poland) by Slawek and Wojtek Wieslawski (Behemoth, Vader, Decapitated, Hate). Each Lelahell album is conceptually linked to the main character of Abderrahmane. This new album is focusing on his first steps in his new life.
Alif contains ten tracks of very intensive death metal, sharp riffs with an Algerian folklore accent, all combined with fast blast beats and technical rhythms.
We would be very grateful to you for sharing, playing this video via your website or other ways if possible.
