El Cuervo de Poe
Well, this was a fun poll to watch! The lead for this poll switched between three different bands, until Danish symphonic metallers Akoma and Mexican alt-prog metallers El Cuervo de Poe pulled away midway through September. Fans made strong pushes in the last few days for both bands. And in the end, El Cuervo de Poe emerged as the Band of the Month for October 2012!
