We now have enough bands to begin to announce the heats for the Bloodstock Metal 2 The Masses competition in Newcastle.
We’ll be publishing more info on each band in the run up : we want this to be a joint experience of discovering local bands that are new to you, along with seeing some of your favourite local bands and of course helping them on their way to Bloodstock.
Remember, the regional winner gains a slot on the New Blood Stage at Bloodstock in 2016.
How it works… each night will have up to 5 bands. 2 go through to the semi final (Think Tank/May) and this is from a mixture of judge and fan votes (50/50 split for the Heats) – bands in the semis then compete for places in the final in June at the Cluny with the ultimate winner going on to play at Bloodstock.
Entry is just £3 for the Heats, £4 for the Semi Final and £5 for the final.
The heats shape up as thus…
Heat 1 – Trillians – February 25th
Shard of Ruin
Heat 2 – Trillians – March 31st
Life Amongst Wolves
A New Nowhere
Heat 3 – Trillians – April 7th
Heat 4 – Trillians – April 14th
Souls of Jack Ketch
Heat 5 – Trillians – April 28th
The Fury Remains
I’ll Play the Villain
