Voting closes for the COROT-3b “Music” Prize on September 8th

No Metal Mercury Prize 2009 Barclaycard Thrash Hits

We thought we ought to remind anyone out there who hasn’t yet cast their vote in the inaugural Thrash Hits COROT-3b “Music” Prize, that the polls close on Tuesday, September 8, at 9:55pm exactly. We’ve even finally gone and decided what specacular prize we’re going to bestow on the band whose album comes out on top.

While the Barclaycard-sponsored money-pit that is the Mercury Prize offers £20,000 in the form of a flimsy, oversized cheque as its ultimate reward, the winners of the COROT-3b “Music” Prize will receive £6.66 in loose change. That’s arguably the Most Metal cash prize ever offered in such a competition (unless we can somehow find a way to pick-pocket Kerry King or something over the weekend, that is).

FYI, COROT-3b is the most heavy metal planet in the universe. Actually – it’s twice as dense as lead. That puts shitty little Mercury to shame. Hence the name.

*** We’re investigating “voting irregularities” – stay tuned for the result ***
