The count-down is OVER! Drum roll please .... MEGADETH's United Abominations is the BravePick of 2007 as voted by the devout scribes of BW&BK!
Megadeth members comment on winning:
Vocalist/guitarist Dave Mustaine: "I am very flattered, because even though ("Metal") Tim and I have known each other for a while, that he is close with the Drovers and that Megadeth is 50% Canadian now, the BW&BK staff are too smart to pick a band unless they truly deserve it, and I am so grateful you feel I and Megadeth deserve this."
Guitarist Glen Drover: "To say that it would be a thrill to have a #1 album for 2007 with BW&BK, would be an understatement. We are all very excited and honored. Thank you!!
Bassist James LoMenzo: "I want to thank the staff at BW&BK for this supreme honor. Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles is one of the last great metal/hard rock publications, which makes it all the cooler of you to take notice."
Drummer Shawn Drover: "Thanks to all at BW&BK for making United Abominations Album of the year!!!! Being Canadian myself, it truly is an honor to be recognized in my homeland."
