Rammstein were also nominated in the category of best live band, but lost to Sabaton. Additionally, Till Lindemann was nominated in the category of legend, but lost to Corey Taylor.

    I think they could have chosen worse than Corey. Corey and Till are both fucking legends, but still there is only one true legend. And that is Till Lindemann, no doubt. But Sabaton better than Rammstein?!?! What the fuck seriously. But after all these awards don’t really matter because we all know that there is nothing better than Rammstein.

    @Ryan totally disagree with your statement.Because i listen sabaton but in lives the sound isnt so good as rammstein.Also Joakin talk to the crowd a lot.The lights are terrible.I think they won because of Nuclear Blast thats all.

    I’ll tell you who decided Sabaton should win… the readers of the German Metal Hammer. DAMN YOU GERMANY! DAMN YOU! I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Germany for giving us Rammstein. THANK YOU GERMANY! THANK YOU!

    It does puzzle me as to why a lot of Germans seem to be pretty dismissive of Rammstein though. It’s almost like they’re ashamed of them

    Actually Sabaton are a much much better live band than Rammstein. Sure Rammstein has an amazing stage show but as performers they are not they most lively or energetic. Sabaton while they do have a very plain stage show are extremely energetic and are very crowd savvy. So in all fairness Sabaton are the better live performers.

    Whoever made the decision of saying Sabaton are better live than the German Gods ….. Needs a slap – and quickly !!!

    Lost to Sabaton? REALLY?!?!?! Their show is as cookie cutter as a concert can be. Plane stage with a giant band name banner, random pyro that doesn’t flow with the music, and average sound. They don’t even come close to R+’s shows!

    @LittleLuckyLink “I don’t even think Rammstein should be nominated for that category, they should just receive the award automatically.”

  • LittleLuckyLink

    How the hell does Rammstein lose to ANYONE in the category of best live band?

    I don’t even think Rammstein should be nominated for that category, they should just receive the award automatically.

    oh well, glad to see they won something.
