Best Metal/Hardcore Advocate - 2008
Metal and hardcore are big draws in Denver, thanks in part to Uncle Nasty. You know this, of course, if you've ever tuned your dial to KBPI between the hours of midnight and 2 a.m. for Metalix, the long-running underground, metal-centric specialty show he founded. Six days a week, the best emerging talent is spotlighted, along with the town's heavyweights. And during drive time, Nasty often brings in area acts for Local Band Hang Out Day and gives them the star treatment. His undying support for the music made here reflects the fact that he's a part of the scene himself, as the frontman of Horse. Hail Nasty!
