Well, the 2014 Juno Award Nominees have been announced, and us Hellbounders were keeping an eye out for the Metal/Hard Music Album of the Year category. Unlike their American counterparts, the Junos have done a great job of having some great acts win and get nominated in the past (Woods of Ypres won in 2013 and KEN Mode won the inaugural award in 2012).
I’m not sure exactly what this list means – is this list any better than any of the individual lists? Probably not. Every list that comes out has their own personality, has albums that may be less obvious. But perhaps what this list does show is what the collective metal media thought was the “can’t miss” albums this year.
Mares of Thrace stopped in at Hamilton, ON’s This Ain’t Hollywood for a show earlier this month as part of their tour supporting new album The Pilgrimage. Here are some photos from that evening’s performance, as captured by Hellbound’s own Adam Wills.
“I like my metal and I like my vegan food, so I couldn’t help but be delighted when earlier this year Vegan Black Metal Chef videos started circulating via Twitter and other social media: black metal aesthetics and meat, dairy, and egg-free cooking in a delightfully over-the-top combination.”

This weekend marks the first instalment of Heavy TO, Toronto’s spinoff of the previously visited Heavy MTL. Having attending the previous event in Montreal, I decided to stay a bit closer to home and catch the inaugural event here in Ontario. As I have done at the previous festivals, I’ll be live blogging throughout the weekend. Keep up, as this will be updated all weekend!

King Diamond and Nergal going under the knife (all of us at Hellbound wish them all the best and a speedy recovery), Metal Film Festivals, Year End lists and more make up “This Week in Metal”, a weekly feature that features what has gone by the past week.
Here are some things that went online in the past week that caught our attention and we thought were worth sharing.
