Metal Band of the Year was one of the closest categories in the 2012 Loudwire Music Awards, but during the final moments of voting, metalcore titans As I Lay Dying surged ahead to claim the win.

As I Lay Dying took a comfortable lead over bands such as Anthrax and Machine Head early in the voting, but one band that they couldn’t quite shake was Lamb of God. After many lead changes made the possible result too close to call at times, As I Lay Dying fans rallied together and launched the band into a slick first-place finish, earning over 28 percent of the votes.

Congratulations to your 2012 Metal Band of the Year champs, As I Lay Dying. Watch out for them in 2013 on a co-headlining tour with the Devil Wears Prada. See the full voting results below and click on the red button to find out the next winner:
