BURST Comment On 'P3 Guld' Award Win

Sweden's BURST have commented on their surprising win in the "Best Rock/Metal Album Of The Year" category (for their criticially acclaimed "Origo" release) at the prestigious "P3 Guld" awards, which were held in Gothenburg, Sweden on Saturday (Jan. 21). Also nominated in this category were OPETH (who many believed were a virtual shoo-in for the award) as well as GRAND MAGUS, THE HELLACOPTERS and RENTOKILLER.

Commented the band: "Everybody in BURST is very honored by the award, and we consider it an assertment as well as general recognition from the Swedish musical environment after years of our band existing in the shadows. Previous winners in the P3 Guld 'Rock/Metal' category include OPETH, IN FLAMES and NASUM, and to stand out as the winner among this year's impressive roster of nominees is a momentous feeling.

"The award ceremony was followed by a glammed-up party where everything was kinda bizarre — kind of like going to the zoo and checking out all the pretty animals, except these particular animals where loaded on free champagne and bling bling. Pretty wacky fun, and one of us even managed to break parts of the snobby hotel's interior together with an anonymous member of one of the other 'Rock/Metal' nominees. How fucking punk anarchy is that? We rule."
