Held at the historic Lincoln Center in New York on March 31, The Independent Music Awards honors and celebrates the most exceptional self-released and indie label talent from around the globe.

Crowned as winners of the Best Independent Metal/Hardcore Album to come out this past year are no other than rising J-rockstars Esprit D’Air, who released their critically-acclaimed album Constellations last summer.

The winning album, Constellations was selected by an esteemed artist and industry judging panel which included Slayer, Amy Lee (Evanescence), Tom Waits and Sepultura, among many others; as well as press and talent buyers from the Americas, Europe, and Pacific Rim.

Constellations was produced by lead vocalist and guitarist, Kai, who follows a commendable DIY ethos by composing, recording, producing and mixing everything himself, whilst working with Kobalt and AWAL (Artists Without A Label) to distribute their music.
