Yes, yes, yes, the Mercury Prize doesn’t have any metal in it. Yes, yes, yes, it doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things. Yes, yes, yes, that hasn’t stopped us resurrecting the COROT-3b Prize to celebrate a dozen great British metal albums from the last 12 months. Go click that link if you need an explanation why we called that. Everyone else: go click the “Read More” link and go listen to our Sunday Spotify Slaylist of this year’s COROT-3b nominees.
Remember, the winner of the COROT-3b Prize gets a whopping £6.66, which we will deliver to the band in pennies. Why? Because that’s literally the most metal (in weight) that you can get for £6.66. Yes, we’re overcompensating. That’s kind of the point of COROT-3b. Do you see?
Anyway, go listen to the nominees. By definition, they’re all pretty damn good at what they do.
And yeah, here’s the poll for you to vote for who you want to win. That’s the important bit, right?

Spotify is available to most of Europe, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, and a load of other countries for free – though obviously you’re better off shelling out either £5 or £10 a month for one of Spotify’s premium packages, as then you can listen to our Slaylists without having them interrupted by adverts. For our readers in countries not currently serviced by Spotify….well, now’s a good time to go buy some great British albums, isn’t it?
