    Some of you may have heard of this through emails, MySpace, Facebook, etc. Here's some info I've cobbled together from the stuff on their site. I'll be cross-posting this to every Aussie band forum on UM.

    The Association for Australian Heavy Metal (AAHM) and the Australian Metal Awards (AMA) were formed to give Heavy Metal in Australia the support and backing it has lacked since it began to flourish during the 1980s.

    AAHM and AMA is governed and operated by dedicated individuals who are passionate about this genre of music and have been heavily involved in the organising and running of events for both Australian and International Heavy Metal acts for a number of years.

    AAHM and AMA’s objectives are to:
    - provide support and backing to all Australian Heavy Metal bands / artists
    - actively promote Australian Heavy Metal nationally
    - reward and recognise the bands that have made a significant contribution to the Heavy Metal genre of Australian music.

    Submission forms are currently being finalised for bands and artists to nominate and be nominated for the Australian Metal Awards 2009. A basic press kit (bio) and cd (demo/EP or full length album) will be required for all band entries.
    Bands must show they have been active* between the period of 1 March 08 and 1 March 09. (* playing gigs, releasing, recording or composing)

    If you would like to nominate a band, forward us their details (myspace / email etc) and we will contact them on your behalf.
