Anybody have the Revolver or Terrorizer lists so I can add them to the nominations sheet?

New Management, Friday, 28 December 2012 21:59 (1 year ago) Permalink

Sent my ballot in... wow limiting it down to 20 was really tough.

Frobisher the (Viceroy), Saturday, 29 December 2012 02:59 (1 year ago) Permalink

Having a tough time with my list.. I don't think I even have 20, not that I care, but I can't help to think that my number one is so not what I thought. If I go by what I was most stoked on and most satified with my number one is just weird in comparison to what I find myself listening to on the daily..

SeanWayne, Sunday, 30 December 2012 04:05 (1 year ago) Permalink

i figured it out.. my number one was very important to me, this year. I was so stoked when it finally came out, I talked about it for months after the fact, and its got good good songs that reminded my why I like em so much. A lot was said about how those songs came about, but it doesn't mateer, they fucking kill, are well played, production that of what you're use to hearing from them, and I got that familiar feeling of, "Oh yeah, these guys can still fucking kill it!"

SeanWayne, Sunday, 30 December 2012 19:07 (1 year ago) Permalink

I had not realised before that the proper way to vote in the past is to not number your ballot, just put your #1 1st etc. That will help out tabulating.

New Management, Sunday, 30 December 2012 19:25 (1 year ago) Permalink

Happy new year y'all

New Management, Tuesday, 1 January 2013 12:26 (1 year ago) Permalink

Not voting but am very interested in the results for where my hard-earned dollars will be going...

Loud guitars shit all over "Bette Davis Eyes" (NYCNative), Tuesday, 1 January 2013 23:36 (1 year ago) Permalink

You can vote for even just one album (up to a max of 20) NYCNative. Vote for what you like on the nominations list.

To anybody reading this; if there is an album(s) on the nominations list you like then vote for it.

New Management, Wednesday, 2 January 2013 15:32 (1 year ago) Permalink

Top 13 was best I could muster for this, since I didn't help with nominations. Thanks for handling this Erik!

I did 13 as well... trippy.

I'm only going to have c.10 hateful hipster false metal records to vote for, but I'll vote anyway!

Neil S, Thursday, 3 January 2013 11:35 (1 year ago) Permalink

done and done! Managed abt 16 in the end.

Neil S, Thursday, 3 January 2013 12:14 (1 year ago) Permalink

Should be able to manage a top 25 but unfortunately a few new non-nominated records have shot up in my top 10 lately: Melankoli, Grand Supreme Blood Court, Lustre and Borgne.

Siegbran, Thursday, 3 January 2013 18:17 (1 year ago) Permalink

Haha ok my bad. I thought someone said Erik was running the poll. Thanks mystery man!

i just voted for what i wanted, nominations be damned.

maybe if you gang up you can make antinomianism into a force for change!

I've been tolerant of write-ins so far, but it's a bit of hassle and I don't guarantee that all future write-ins will be counted once my attention gets taken up with the main ILM poll.

SeanWayne, Monday, 7 January 2013 02:08 (1 year ago) Permalink

I sent him an email asking him to vote. Seemed only right.

ha Black Bananas was def one of my favorite albums of the year, but no way am I voting for it on here, even after indulging my willingness to pollute the poll with false metal

But yall should go vote for it in the main poll

gullible lochinski (Drugs A. Money), Monday, 7 January 2013 02:17 (1 year ago) Permalink

just remember to vote in this poll first!

New Management, Monday, 7 January 2013 11:26 (1 year ago) Permalink

AG's ballot was the 30th. Last years poll said they had 80. Lets beat that! Don't leave it too late and be unable to vote - vote now!

34th ballot received and thanks to all who have voted so far

New Management, Tuesday, 8 January 2013 19:42 (1 year ago) Permalink

I nominated this but it's not on the ballot:

Owl - First Album

The Venomous Maximus album is called Beg Upon The Light, not self-titled.

Fastnbulbous, Wednesday, 9 January 2013 03:39 (1 year ago) Permalink

I highly recommend those who haven't voted yet to listen to the Owl album before voting.

http://owlbrotherhood.bandcamp.com/album/first-album

Another extremely promising debut from a Bay Area (Oakland) band, Owl consists of three brothers (Clint on drums, Alex vocals, and guitar prodigy Axell who was supposedly only 13 when they first formed in 2009) and bassist Melanie Burkett of Dalton. Their impressive 2010 demo laid out their M.O. right from the start, heavy rock and metal with roots in NWOBHM and 70s proto-metal with some raggedy bits of thrash and prog tossed in. The epic “Glaurung” stretches out to 12:28 on the demo, and is trimmed to 10:29 on the album, with the awesome 13:57 “Thunder In The Sea” taking the spot as the longest jam at the album’s close. I hear Di’Anno-era Iron Maiden in the vocals, and just piles of killer leads, riffs and solos. Remember when great guitar playing was unfashionable in the 90s? Turns out one of the future greats was just bein’ born!

Fastnbulbous, Wednesday, 9 January 2013 03:52 (1 year ago) Permalink

I see the Owl album on the list?

So do I.

Stragglers better get thinking about their ballots as this poll closes friday 11.59pm UK time with no extensions. Don't leave it too late and VOTE NOW.

New Management, Thursday, 10 January 2013 17:14 (1 year ago) Permalink

I voted!

Looks like Mgmt added it, thanks. I voted.

no, its always been there.

New Management, Thursday, 10 January 2013 19:01 (1 year ago) Permalink

That dude Clint from Owl is a savage of a drummer.. ambidextrous, which is "the extra bone in the foot" for any drummer. He's in a few different bands around Oakland. A lot of folks have been talking about Owl around here, they're out on tour I believe right now.

SeanWayne, Thursday, 10 January 2013 22:37 (1 year ago) Permalink

24 hours left to vote

New Management, Friday, 11 January 2013 00:01 (1 year ago) Permalink

Attention all: the two Ufomammut albums "Oro: Opus Primer" and "Oro: Opus Alter" were nominated separately so you have to say which one you're voting for. I'm currently treating the votes for undifferentiated "Oro" as two votes, one for each, which has the effect of bumping your #20 off the ballot. If any repentent Oro voters wish to change their ballot, then either ILXmail me or post here.

Vote in the ILM End of Year Poll! (seandalai), Friday, 11 January 2013 00:25 (1 year ago) Permalink

I totally think those two should count as one entity since they are two halves of the same song, but I'm guessing we've already had this argument fifteen times. Shit, I need to go finish my ballot.

HAPPY BDAY TOOTS (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Friday, 11 January 2013 03:26 (1 year ago) Permalink

I just voted for them both. No big deal.

EZ Snappin, Friday, 11 January 2013 03:30 (1 year ago) Permalink

Just a bit of fun, let's be cool

NINO CARTER, Friday, 11 January 2013 04:42 (1 year ago) Permalink

I voted, finally. realized I'd only heard about 21 of these albums this year but 2 of them I didn't like. Lots of good stuff nommed, there were two I wish i'd been around to nominate though that would have gotten top 5s from me, but overall good choices.

NINO CARTER, Friday, 11 January 2013 04:43 (1 year ago) Permalink

I remain unrepentant! Another poll split the points evenly between the Oro albums. But as jon said, it's one song. A damn long one at 90+ min hence the split release, but a vote for one is a vote for both. I'd say combine the votes, but it's yer poll.

Fastnbulbous, Friday, 11 January 2013 04:54 (1 year ago) Permalink

voted!

In truth, it's until I get back from the pub. Could be midnight, could be later.

It closes at midnight no exceptions. I don't have as many rules as AG did but there is no excuse for missing the deadline.

New Management, Friday, 11 January 2013 16:28 (1 year ago) Permalink

I feel bad that my #1 is something I've only recently acquired that I've listened to way less than the others as a result, but it is one of those things where I recognized very quickly it's heads and tails above the rest.

NINO CARTER, Friday, 11 January 2013 17:08 (1 year ago) Permalink

Doesn't matter, don't think I'll be voting anyway.

HAPPY BDAY TOOTS (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Friday, 11 January 2013 18:17 (1 year ago) Permalink

Jon, whatever else going on around here doesn't involve the metal crowd. I hope you'll participate.

EZ Snappin, Friday, 11 January 2013 18:21 (1 year ago) Permalink

No, its that I've had a bunch of things pop up at work that need my attention, so I won't be able to get my ballot in by the end of my work day, which will be after the hard deadlone.

Siegbran, Friday, 11 January 2013 18:31 (1 year ago) Permalink

There's about 5 records that I would've included had I nominated them, but as I'm the only one likely to vote for them anyway it doesn't really matter.
