Bassist Riley Cobb comments:
“This year’s Calgary Beer Core Awards was a huge success for everyone involved. It was great to see all our friends, fellow band mates and die-hard supporters of the Calgary music scene all in one place for a night of appreciation. We are proud to announce that we took home the award for best overall band! We want to take a minute to thank all of our fans who took the time to vote, our friends and family for all the support we have recieved over the years, and the CBC crew for making the Calgary scene so supportive, and welcoming for bands of any calibre. There’s nothing more gratifying, or motivating to recieve such recognition for all the hard work we’ve put in to the band throughout its history, and all the hard work to come in the future of Throne Of Vengeance.
It’s the love of music, the fans, and the support they give us that keeps us doing what we love and never looking back.
We leave you with the quote of the CBC.
“Here’s to a few! And here’s to a few more!””
