Recognition is always the best award to any band! Music coming out of Africa is booming, and we thank all the bands who are bringing this vision to reality. Thanks to "African Metal" once more for supporting SCARAB and spreading the word. All the best."
About the "Award For Sheer Metallic Brutality", African Metal organization commented: "Let's face it-Metal appeals to the beast in us all. No style of music is this loud or unabashedly untamed. There's a lot to be said about Metal and although most outsiders take to the cliche that it is all loud and aggressive, not knowing there's a lot more added to the picture, we seek to celebrate the untamed, wild and brutal side of Metal with this award for the Extreme Metal band who wears their brutality on their sleeve.
...and the winner is VOMIT THE HATE!
Hailing from Tunisia, VOMIT THE HATE first established themselves as a brutal force to be reckoned with in 2007 with their The Art Of Vomiting Hate EP a quick dose of brutal death metal in the vein of Suffocation. They have since become renown for their technical versatility and incredibly gory songs which graced their full length album 'Of Ignorance and Self Destruction' in 2008 and a recent EP titled 'Premortem Rot'".
