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).
Volition is the album the band should have made after Kezia (2005) and Fortress (2008). The perfect blend of songwriting and technicality makes this record a true standout. This baby is a prime candidate for my end of year list.
