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.

Crime Records has announced the May 4 release of Identity Disorder, the new album from one-man Tunisian Progressive Death Metal band Brood Of Hatred. New song "Feeding the Hunger" is now streaming at youtu.be/yycxyJIwm8c
After a four-year hiatus subsequent to release of debut album Skinless Agony, Brood Of Hatred returns with a sophomore album in Identity Disorder that deftly balances progressive structure with downright catchy songwriting.
Featuring sole member Muhammed Mêlki, the album is "a gift of chaos and disorder, songs of life and death. It is the heart and soul of my identity, given to those who believe."

Brood Of Hatred is a Tunisian one-man concept, Death Metal Act founded in 2010 by Muhammed Mêlki. It is music with no specific genre boundaries or philosophies, but some haunting atmospheres guiding you through progressive journeys, as well as some unconventional writing inspired by the strange state of mind that characterises the concept.
