The third annual Immortal Music Awards are finally here!
In late October of 2014, Immortal Music began asking fans of ours various questions with the intention of finding the best and favorites in music for the year. Fast forward just over two months later, and all the winners have been found! Before we begin announcing it all, we wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who participated in the voting, promoting and suggesting for the awards. Without your participation, this could not have happened, and for that, you are thanked more than words can even express.
With that in mind, we can now say goodbye to 2014 and welcome 2015 with the best music related things of 2014.
The first questions asked were all looking toward the new year, and involved new content and tours from bands. All the answers in this part of the Awards were answers you guys provided. Input from the creator of Immortal Music can be found here, if you are interested.
Also keep in mind that some questions have many answers, and others have set winners. Some also have second place winners, and others do not. This all just depended on how the answers were given.
-Who would you like to see release more content in 2015?
Tonight Alive, My Chemical Romance, AC/DC, Metallica, Neil Young,Tool, Siouxsie and The Banshees, All Time Low, Cradle Of Filth
-Who would you like to see tour more in 2015?
Shinedown was the number one answer, but the other answers were; Tonight Alive, Set It Off, Adelitas Way, Shinedown (got this answer twice), Papa Roach, Iron Maiden, Sabaton, Airbourne, Alestorm, Neil Young, Gerard Way, Linkin Park, Simple Plan, HIM
-Which album release are you most excited about for 2015?
Pierce The Veil, Papa Roach, Shinedown, The Cure, Disturbed, Iron Maiden, Eminem, HIM
Once the questions looking forward to the future were finished, it was time to get down to business and review the year through several different questions. Most were asked, and then voted on, depending on how much input was given, and if winners were determined on their own or not.
