Philippines Metal Act Valley of Chrome Win Awit Award For Best Rock/Alternative Recording

YOOOOO – our homies in Philippines’ based metal act Valley of Chrome have just won an Awit Award in the Philippines for Best Rock/Alternative Recording! The Awit Awards is like the Philippines grammy that’s in its 35th year! The song they won it for is ‘Mahirap Mahalin’ streaming further below.

Vocalist Rogel shared his excitement:

“When our label Tower of Doom told us that we were nominated, we were pretty excited just to see our name included on the list. Why? Because we’re glad to represent local heavy music on such a mainstream platform. When they invited us to attend, we were all for it because we wanted to experience such an event.

“But then to our surprise, we won the thing. It was a milestone for the band because we usually don’t win awards of this caliber. Coming from the underground scene and experiencing this has validated all our hard work, especially during the pandemic when “Mahirap Mahalin” and the “Confront Thy Curse” were recorded.

We’re just grateful.

We can’t wait to write and release new material soon.”
