After thousands upon thousands of votes from music fans, the winners have been determined in the 2011 Loudwire Music Awards.

We were blown away by the response, with categories such as Artist of the Year, Rock Goddess of the Year and Comeback of the Year garnering more than 40,000 votes each.

We had a few bands that were multiple winners, and a couple of true surprises in some of the categories.

Nominees in the various categories included such bands as Anthrax, Avenged Sevenfold, Evanescence, Foo Fighters, Lacuna Coil, Mastodon, Seether and Sixx: A.M., among several others.
