I've not followed nuggets in years. I might tune in later to see how it goes.

Probably a post-rock winner and could well be BRUIT, although I feel 'Zombified' might do well among the harder songs.

Oh yeah they have to be worth a shout too. Eluveitie descendants are stronk *. (also it's an improvement on their initial songs after splitting from Eluveitie, though I haven't listened to 'Avalanche' for ages and it's sounding pretty good now so perhaps always good)

I have to say I was very surprised at the entries,
my concept of indie/rock/alt guitar songs is some Irish troubadour singing with an acoustic guitar
not heavy metal like 80% of the entires were biggrin.gif amazed people are into that to be honest but alas...
I see now this was not really for me biggrin.gif

guitar emoji spam 🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸

glad we could enlighten you bjork

based on music lovers I talk to outside of here, heavy song love abounds - also metal is a really interesting set of genres well worth exploring. this very contest had loads of different post-rock, prog-rock, goth metal, glam metal, pop punk, sadly no death metal though, we should fix that.

that's not to say acoustic and alt-folk isn't welcome in Nuggets and actually IIRC it dominated the earlier editions, but I've always viewed this as a safe space for people to go guitar-crazy and I often find such strumming a tad boring, with head-banging a much preferred preference.

I might decide to put something heavier in for the next one. I've kept my entries very light so far but may ramp it up next time. Mind you I'll probably go too far the other way if the polished and glossy entries in this round is anything to go by

The winner of the last contest was about as far as you can get away from heavy metal tbf... laugh.gif

Either Cellar Darling or BRUIT ≤ would make for fantastic winners so hopefully people are along the right lines there. Cellar Darling was the one that jumped at me as a winning contender too.

My 12 pointer was one of my favourite ever discoveries here so I'll certainly be rooting for that!
