Irish thrash heads GAMA BOMB have been voted 'Best Newcomers' of 2008 in the
Terrorizer readers' poll.

2008 was a great year for GAMA BOMB - frontman PHILLY BYRNE enthuses that
2008 was "Explosive. It was the biggest year in the history of Gama Bomb by
far. Making an album in Britain, touring Europe twice and even more made
this a landmark year. It's amazing we've all still got full mouths of teeth
to be honest with the amount of drinking and rough housing that's gone on.
Wicked. We'll remember 2008 very fondly."

Now 2008 has ended on a high note and 2009 has begun in the most awesome
fashion, winning 'Best Newcomer' in the Terrorizer readers' poll, plus being
voted second-best live band and fifth-best band overall.

A stoked GAMA BOMB vocalist PHILLY BYRNE says: "It made our day to hear how
we slayed in this poll. To be named best newcomers was amazing, and we
raised a glass of German beer when we heard the news. It just shows that
even after six years together as a band, you can become the hottest new
thing to some people, and that means we're doing something right. We're
especially proud to have performed so well in the live act category: we
gigged as hard as anyone last year on a much lower profile than most of the
bands we trounced in that list, and next year we're going to top it, because
nobody can put on a show like GAMA BOMB. Seriously, look out: people will
die from enjoyment at a G-Bomb show in the near future. Get insurance."
