Good morning, afternoon or night, wonderful human being reading this screen! Hopefully you are doing well, and are in the mood to answer a few questions for us.
The Immortal Music Awards will officially begin in about one week, but we have three pre-questions to ask. These ones all regard things of the future, and you will have through Halloween night to answer them. So, if you see them below and aren't sure what you would say just yet, feel free to come back after you've given it more thought. But don't forget to come back! Your input is extremely needed!
Below are your questions, and we encourage you to answer all three wherever you can. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or the comments below!
-Who would you like to see release more content in 2015?
This can be anyone you would like, but please try to make sure it is an active band. Those who have broken up do not count, as their returns would be more of a surprise, rather than a promise.
Example: I would like to see more content from All Time Low, As It is and A Day To Remember!
-Who would you like to see tour more in 2015?
This has the same guidelines as the question above. As long as they are active (or on a hiatus, that does count as well!), they can be included.
Example: All Time Low, Shinedown and Saint Asonia! They all need to come to my area very soon.
-Which album release are you most excited about for 2016?
This can be anyone you would like! If they have already stated they will be releasing new content next year, or you just suspect they may -either works!
Example: I'm really excited for the release of Pierce The Veil's new album.
The Immortal Music Awards officially begin on November 1, so you have until then to get your answers in for these questions! Please spread them around to your friends and family so we can get even more input!
As stated earlier, you can answer your questions wherever it is most convenient for you. Your options are in here the comments, over on Facebook (either on the post with this article's link, or in a private message), Twitter, or there may be an Instagram picture as well!
Psstt! Tag your answers with #immortalmusicawards on Instagram and Twitter!
Hey...So some of you may have noticed that its been a short while since anything was last posted on the website. I would like to apologize for that right off the bat, first and foremost.
Second, I would like to explain, though I'm not sure it really matters to anyone but me if I do. There's not even much to say, its just not like to me to totally disappear without a trace, you know?
After Rock Allegiance fell through (info on that is here) I was very upset, and it kind of put out the spark I had gotten while doing all the preview content. I really am trying to get it back, but maybe a short break would do me some good. Or at least, that's what a few people have told me when I mentioned being unmotivated and feeling bad about it.
So, that's sort of what I'm doing. However, I am still going to do the Immortal Music Awards which will begin October 25, and will go through the end of December. In the time between then and now I will be going to an annual event here called Zombicon with Remedy X, and Disney World with my boyfriend. I will definitely be vlogging Disney World but I don't plan on vlogging Zombicon this year. I did last year a little bit, but I don't think I'm going to this year.
I will be back! Just right now, I think I need the time to myself to just do whatever to maybe get back in the swing of things. I hope everyone understands.
For a very long time now, we have talked about releasing shirts. After many trials and failures, we were finally able to make that happen in late June of this year.
Ever since, we've been trying to figure out how to safely and effectively sell online. Luckily, we think we figured it out!
There is now officially an online store for Immortal Music! There's not much on it, but I have a few ideas in mind that may end up real at some point.
As of right now, I'm sorry but I can only send to places in the US. I may be able to personally work something out with you if you are international, but for right now, I can only ship to the US for financial reasons.
There's only two items available right now, which is a t-shirt shirt and a bracelet. The shirt has the website's tagline, "Music is my religion, Rockstars are my Gods and Concerts are my Church." on the front and it says Immortal Music on the back.
The bracelet says Immortal Music on one side and Music is Immortal on the other. The prices listed do include shipping as well!
I am very excited (and a bit nervous) to share this with you! If you have any questions, please let me know!
Just as the title of this post says, we need to know your favorites and need your input.
The other day, we announced the categories for the 2015 Immortal Music Awards and asked for your input. Several people have participated, and we thank those people greatly. However, we do still need more, so please keep it coming. We also figured we would throw a quick little update out there about what we still need verses what we don't.
We have all the nominees sorted out for Favorite Band, Favorite Song, Best Album, and Favorite Singer.
All the other categories are on the way to being sorted out, but we do definitely need more suggestions in order to properly determine nominees.
We desperately need answers for the Best Music Video, as we have only had one suggestion so far, and hottest male because there's only been a few suggestions.
We also need more suggestions for all of the following categories;
Please keep in mind that these are just suggestions and all suggestions must have been active/ released this year. As long as they've been active this year, you can suggest whoever you would like.
And please do! You can leave your suggestions in the comments of this post, or over on Facebook in a comment or in a private message. Any of them work, and are highly appreciated. Just please make sure that you're telling me what category you're answering for, what band each person you mention is in, AND what song the lyric you suggest is from. This saves a lot of Google searches, and therefor time.
Thank you very much to everyone who has participated and to everyone who has yet to but will! The voting begins officially on November 1, but we have some extra stuff beginning on October 25 so please get your input in now! All suggestions will be mentioned later on, but not all will make it into the awards. None the less, all are very important and highly appreciated so please do feel encouraged to do so!
The fourth annual Immortal Music Awards are coming but in order to make them work, we need your suggestions!
All the categories are set up, and voting will begin November 1, but right now, we have no nominees and want your suggestions!
There are twelve categories and four questions I will be asking, and all the categories are below. We will be asking one question a week, except for the first few weeks. We will get the first three questions out of the way October 25. You will have one week to get your answers in, and then on November 1 the voting will begin.
On December 31, I will be posting the winners, and my thoughts on them all!
Here are all the categories, PLEASE SUGGEST PEOPLE FOR EACH CATEGORY!! I need four or five nominees per category. If you guys don't give me enough suggestions, I can just come up with someone, but this is a fun way to get you guys even more involved.
Best Singer of 2015-
Best Screamer of 2015-
Best Drummer of 2015-
Favorite band of 2015-
Best Song of 2015-
Best Lyrics of 2015-
Best Music Video of 2015-
Hottest Male of 2015-
Hottest Female of 2015-
Best Album of 2015- (Must have been released THIS YEAR)
I would like all the nominees to be known to me by October 25, but if they're not all known by them it is okay. Questions will be asked November 1 through December 27, so there is time if something falls behind.
JUST ONE THING BEFORE YOU GO SUGGESTING PEOPLE. Your choice must've been active in 2015. There's plenty of greats who haven't been fully active this year, or have passed, and that is wonderful, but this revolves around this year.
Please get your suggestions in! You can leave them on all my social medias! A comment or message on the Facebook page, Tweet me, or comment over on Instagram. Or here in the comments, if you would like. Just please make sure its relevant to this year, and that you tell me what category your suggestion is for. If you just message the page and say "Jack Barakat", I may understand what you meant but it would just be easier if you said, "Best Guitarist -Jack Barakat."
Be sure to check out the last three Immortal Music Awards! Technically the idea began in 2011, but we really didn't end up properly starting until 2012. Let's keep this going -get to suggesting now!
2014 - 2013 - 2012
A little over a week ago, I made an announcement that I would be covering the Rock Allegiance festival in Chester, PA. I couldn't have been more thrilled, and frankly tears of joy kept welling up every time I thought about it.
Well....unfortunately, a lot can change in a week. It was just one thing after another going wrong. First it was just minor things, like figuring out how the hell we were going to get across the country, then it was health problems and then it was broken bones and gut feelings that something wasn't right.
I am no longer going to the Rock Allegiance festival, and I'm not going to lie, I am upset about it. I've had a few people just tell me to "try harder" and that the whole gut feeling thing is just an "excuse", but with everything going on at once, I'm taking it as an omen that something terrible was going to happen if we went.
I tried every option I could, but it just wasn't in the cards, I guess. It might not be the same thing, but I am still really thankful that I could have gone, that I was good enough to even be given a pass in the first place. This is the first time I've ever had to turn down a pass after being given it, and hopefully the last.
Other chances will come around, and I promise I am trying to get back in the swing of things. I have a series in mind about international, lesser known bands, and I need to start thinking of the Immortal Music Awards soon. This will be the fourth annual one, and I am hoping I can figure out some more fun ways to get you guys involved. If you have any ideas at all, please let me know.
