In 2010, as the Inaugural Platinum Vinyl Awards were progressing, the list of eligible Rock entries was staggering. Trying to stem the Tidal Wave, I split the harder bands off into their own Hard Rock category. It worked that year, but since then I have found that the number of entries in Hard Rock is growing. I don't think that it will ever turn out that a second division is necessary, but one never knows.
Of course my biggest wish for 2012 in Hard Rock would be for a new release by Disciple. All indications from their site is that it will remain nothing more than a wish. Unfortunately, my Hard Rock Wishes will appear t have to be only wishes from The Showdown, Apocalypitca, Haste The Day, and Children 18:3, as all are resting on their laurels at the moment. It will go somewhat easier on Haste The Day since they just released Haste The Day vs Haste The Day Live, but a new studio album would be nice.
I guess we will have to be satisfied with the plans of the Band with the Coolest Name in Christian Music DEMON HUNTER. According to a press release the band is in the studio in Seattle and the yet unnamed project will be coming out possibly in April. A nice Birthday Present for your favorite blogger. Sorry for the short posts, but that is what happens when the news is sparse. Until next time, I am Awaiting Your Reply.
