The winners of the "Rock the nation awards 2009" are here! - 2009-09-18

2009-09-18 - "The winner takes it all". True to the moniker ROCK THE NATION brought a band contest of a particular kind to life. The Austrian management and booking company takes care of such bands as Deathstars, Legion Of The Damned, Sabaton, Behemoth, Kataklysm, Leaves Eyes and Eluveitie. They offered a lucrative all-inclusive package for the winner, with a long term label deal with BOOMER ENTERTAINMENT and the leading heavy metal company NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS (Nightwish, HammerFall, Testament, Dimmu Borgir and many more), and them of course.
This unique competition was presented by all leading European metal magazines, like the German, Italian, Spanish and Greek METAL HAMMER, the British TERRORIZER, METALLIAN (France), SCREAM (Norway), ROCK TRIBUNE (Belgium), SPARK (Czech Republic), and the Dutch webzine LORDSOFMETAL.NL.
"The huge interest blew all our expectations", says ROCK THE NATION boss Stefan Hattinger. More than 1.200 bands from all over the world applied, hundreds of thousands votes have been counted. "It made the RTN-AWARD a tremendous success and proves that this is what the bands have been waiting for."
The 100 best votings were then judged by an inner circle composed of members from ROCK THE NATION, BOOMER ENTERTAINMENT and NUCLEAR BLAST.
In the end there wasn't only one, but two winners!
SUICIDAL ANGELS from Greece and STEELWING from Sweden. "We love those two bands so much that we couldn't decide against one of them, so we had to choose two winners", says Hattinger.
Regardless of the experts` opinion, both acts were among the top ten of the fan votings and finally conviced with their unique and overwhelming songwriting. They simply made it! "Both bands really deserve our biggest respect, it would be cool if everybody out there sends his and her congrats & comments. Add them to your friends and see what will happen with both bands in the coming months", says Hattinger with big plans in mind.
The Greek thrash metal formation SUICIDAL ANGELS play a merciless riff massacre and a perfect mix of old KREATOR and SEPULTURA-like sounds. "We are more than happy to win this contest", says vocalist and guitar player Nick. "We will do our best to reciprocate all the trust we received. We would like to thank Stefan and ROCK THE NATIONS, all the guys from BOOMER ENTERTAINMENT and NUCLEAR BLAST for giving us this unique opportunity. Prepare to be thrashed, thrash till death!"
A similar euphoria ruled the swedish Heavy Metal youngsters of STEELWING (formerly Scavenger), who just wrote their first four tracks ever. "For us it was a nice surprise and I can still hardly believe it", says the 20 year old guitar player and songwriter Robby Rockbag. "We were just about to finish recordings of our first demo, all of a sudden we had a deal with the label that houses so many of our favourite acts like Testament, Candlemass and HammerFall. For us it is like a dream come true and we promise a killer debut album to all you metalheads!"
The RTN AWARD 2010 will start early next year - there will be some improvements in the system, but more infos later. Don't miss to register your band and tell your friends! Just have an eye on http://www.rockthenation.eu
