Nice Effort Chaos guys..
Ditto- well done guys!
When I talk to people over here at shows and mention I'm Australian, the first name that gets dropped is Psycroptic. Seeing as you guys are now recognised as being in the same calibre, and you're about to do some Euro shows, maybe I'll start hearing your name mentioned!
Good luck anyway dudes  :headbang:
Quick! Make a sound like a dying giraffe!

Cheers and Trease that would be nice but we have got a long way to go for that to happen. Got some pretty extreme competition but hopefully with some luck we can win at least one category. :headbang:

Ive been a massive fan since the first moment I heard your songs all those years ago. I love Ando's vocals, the duel guitar work, the drumming and bass keeping the rythm flowing behind, and the epicness of your songs. Oh, and you all seem like cool dudes too, as an added bonus. I hope you win EVERY category!!  :headbang: Best of luck Chaos.

At the album launch the crowd went nuts when the song started.

Good to see Five Star Prison Cell and Aeon Of Horus getting some recognition. They both fucking rock.

im pretty sure mostly all of the submitted entries would be from 2008 given the submissions started in late 08 and the cut-off date was early 09. Next years is likely to then contain mostly 2009 releases.

That's a mighty impressive collection of absolutely terrible bands.
My hands are choking, my knife is broken.
An orgasm is what I need.
Your blood is spilling, the sight is thrilling.
To cum I need to see you bleed.
