Welcome to the 2019 Musicalypse Awards!

We hope you’ve been following along with us during the last few weeks of nominations! 2019 turned out to be a pretty good year musically, with several classics dropping total crap while new bands soared onto the scene. So, without further ado, here are the winners of the Musicalypse 2019 Music Awards for hard rock and heavy metal! A big thank you to A&P Reacts for participating in the nominations and voting this year!

Note: The runner(s) up are essentially the silver medalists, whoever got the second-most votes from the staff. Keep in mind that we’re a small staff so votes are few and far between – winning requires a rare victory of votes and second-place is nearly as rare (hence the frequent many-band ties in the runner-up position)!

[ed.: “Diggy Diggy Hole” was disqualified from Best Party Song because we didn’t realize it was a cover]
