Wow – this is great news to wake up to! Indonesian hardcore band threw up this photo this morning from an AMI Awards ceremony last night where they were nominated for best “metal hardcore” band. That’s amazing that the Indonesian version of the grammy’s that there even is a “metal hardcore” category! And that’s super rad that a HARDCORE band is in the running!
