Suresh De Silva, vocalist of Stigmata states that ‘We only released the video on ChannelFix, and didn’t publish in any of the social media, driving the traffic to the site. The video was Randy’s brainchild. We had a rough discussion with him on what we could include, but he took the reigns and created this amazing video. This has been insane, and I’m still waiting for the win to sink in’. The videos were ranked with public vote, and Stigmata expresses their gratitude to everyone who used their vote, and supported them throughout the competition.
