CONFLICTED Press Release announced their 2010 annual awards winners! CONFLICTED walk away with the following three awards:

CONFLICTED’s Song Victor Victoria – WINS Best Progressive Metal Single of the Year
CONFLICTED’s Lead Vocalist Jason Orton – WINS Best Male Vocalist of the Year
CONFLICTED’s Guitarist Mark Owen – WINS Best Guitarist of the Year 2010 Awards will be presented during an online party on January 8, 2011 starting at 7:30 p.m.

CONFLICTED were also named "Best Metal Band" at the 2010 The Toronto Independent Music Awards (TIMAs).

CONFLICTED have risen to become one of the most revered and “must see” live acts in their region, having headlined many of their own shows, plus having opened for international touring artists, all to stellar audience reception. The responses from music insiders have been emphatically and overwhelmingly positive.

Fronted by the gifted and talented Jason Orton -- a professionally trained, 4-octave range vocalist -- he brings what one would consider a Halford-esque tonality, intensity, and vibrancy to CONFLICTED, with vocal and stage performances that have been widely critically acclaimed.

Orton, in the opinion of many, is poised to become the next metallic singing superstar hailing from Toronto to achieve world recognition, in league with Sebastian Bach (Skid Row) and James LaBrie (Dream Theatre), the latter of which Orton is often favourably compared to.

CONFLICTED's epically orchestrated and powerful, theatre/arena rock -- one that expertly blends modern and classic elements to create a musicality distinctively their own -- is skillfully and dynamically delivered by ROBERT MARK OWEN (guitar), JOHN KOLODZIEJ (bass), COREY STOLL (drums), and RON DE COSTE (keys), all of whom themselves are skilled virtuosos with years of experience which resonates both live and in the studio.

CONFLICTED are currently playing live shows in support the forthcoming release entitled “Never Be Tamed”.

Please join CONFLICTED at Rockpile this Thursday, December 16, 2010 on at 8:30 p.m. with Warmachine and Mind Mechanics. 5555 Dundas Street West (at 427), Etobicoke. $10. All Ages and 19+ Show. Doors at 7:00 p.m. Please respond and circulate this event on Facebook:!/event.php?eid=135357563187821
