Winter In Eden had the upper hand on this poll almost as soon as it launched. The symphonic rockers from the UK jumped to an early lead and held it until the very end, even after a couple close calls from Swedish melodic metallers End Of September. And so Winter In Eden is our Band of the Month for June 2012!
Here are the final standings:
- Winter In Eden – 359 votes (48.45%)
- End Of September– 258 votes (34.82%)

- Unleash The Archers – 5 votes (0.67%)
