Best Metal: Vengeance
Conquering the Best Metal category for the second year in a row, Vengeance shreds through '80s-style heavy metal with the utmost respect. Fans of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath will be in their glory. Guitar wizard Duncan McIntyre loads their songs with squealing harmonics and hammer-ons, while lead singer Debbie Seymour stalks the stage with a mad, Ozzy-like gleam in her eyes. Your head. You must bang it.
