What a relief! We added to the stresses of the season by counting down the top slabs of metal in 2009 each day in December! The burning question ... WHO was going to be #1?! Well, we finally made it and the scribes voted MEGADETH's Endgame as the #1 Brave Pick Of 2009.

Well, word has made it to the Mega-camp and they responded with glee.

Leader Dave Mustaine remarked:

"When it comes down to knowing their shit about music, about the bands, about the fans, and what is the truth, Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles have always been head and shoulders above anyone else. A favourite website of mine and Megadeth. There are no mindless 13 year-olds posting here; just metal fans, writers with serious cred, and an editor that plays fucking hockey! How badass is that?

I would like to thank Tim Henderson and the killer crew of Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles for this tremendous honor. It is my goal to personally dedicate all of the concerts on the upcoming Canadian Carnage tour to BW&BK; the readers, the fans, and the friends of Megadeth.

I am so honored."

Drummer Shawn Drover and fellow crazy Canuck metalhead added: "BW&BK; has always been synonymous with quality music journalism and presenting itself in the highest regard possible, and has been this way since I first started reading it over ten years ago. With that said, for Megadeth's Endgame to be considered the #1 release of 2009 makes me very proud and honoured, to say the least. Not bad for a kid from Deux Montagnes, Quebec, eh??"

Cheers to those that visited every day to check out the countdown!
