The Top 25 Albums of 2012 - Readers’ Poll

Grande Rock logoFor one more year you, the fans/visitors/readers have spoken your mind through our Poll for the Best Albums of 2012. The clear winner with almost 40% of the votes is Bonrud! Hence, congrats to Bonrud! They do deserve to get more recognition and popularity for they are a great and hardworking band. The rest of the result is as you see below.
 
The 3 guys that won a gift for voting and commenting on the page with the Best of 2012 are: Dilyana Delcheva, Kahlisi & Apostol Sorin. Bravo to all the winners! Just a present to all of you that have embraced Grande Rock since the day we returned! Thank you again. More surprises to follow soon.
 
Now that we’re over with the best releases for 2012, it’s time to go back to our daily basis. We are tryin’ to arrange several things so as to better Grande Rock and give you the chance to enjoy your beloved music and bands/artists further. Any suggestions though, are more than welcome. Let’s not forget that our point is not only to present some already popular and much-advertised bands but also to give the chance to all the independent groups and artists out there to have a place where their works can be presented frankly and fairly.
 
We may be a bit harsh when it comes to ratings – honestly aren’t you sick of some sites giving 4 or 5 stars out of 5 to every single album out there? Are they all so great?! – but we’re independent as well and we’re trying to be fair to every band and artist no matter how popular or not they are. Music doesn’t have big and small servants (artist/bands)… they are all equal to Muses. Don’t you ever forget that!
 
PS: Lord rocked the hell outta us with their latest stunning release, so it totally deserved the Best of the Month honor. Similarly, Karnya “bothered us” a lot with their exceptional debut prog album but in the end and after numerous listens they clearly won the title of the February “Gem”.
