    It's that time of year again folks, when Australia gets to pretend we're part of Europe and send our best to compete in THE biggest and best songwriting contest know to exist, the Eurovision Song Contest. 

    In exciting news for metalheads, it is looking like this years Aussie entry may have a metallic edge, as Voyager's prog-pop-metal entry Dreamer is polling exceptionally well in the lead up to this Friday nights commencement of the Australia Decides event.  Australia Decides will see the Perth  band perform Dreamer  - a track that sees the band currently polling at #1 with the AussieVision Team Review and Rating and Public Polls.

    It seems that despite being an unfamiliar genre in the Australian competition, the band's signature blend of pop and prog metal with added keytar have piqued the interest of Eurovision fans. The Australian public are eligible to vote for their favourite performances via SMS from Friday 25 February at 10pm AEDT until Saturday 26 February at approximately 9:45pm AEDT. The public vote makes up half of the overall vote & the artist and song that receives the most points overall will go on to represent Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in May!

    Watch the video for Voyager's Dreamer below. 

    To pregame for Voyager's moment of truth,  and just because this stuff is a not-guilty pleasure of ours around the Maniacs office, we've made this list of the eight greatest metal moments in Eurovision history for your listening pleasure. Follow us down the rabbit hole, eccentricity and enjoyment await. 

    MåneskinZitti E Buoni (Winners, 2021) 

    Lordi - Hard Rock Hallelujah (Winners, 2007) 

    AWS - Viszlát Nyár (21st, 2018) 

    Wig Wam - In My Dreams (9th, 2005)
