Re: Possible Improvements to the New Blood Stage

My heats were scored 50% by the paying public and 50% by judges (2 or 3 and all involved in bands/metal scene). This tends to ensure that a less able band with lots of friends are not more likely to go through to the final than a more able band with a smaller local following. I also used a voting sy...

Re: Possible Improvements to the New Blood Stage

Honestly, I reckon that's the issue, I mean, I don't know much about Extreme Metal, so I can't really talk about that, but I do that in my area, there is like one melodic band for every 8 extreme bands, and I can name about 5 or 6 melodic bands in this area that are active. If the one melodic band ...

Re: Possible Improvements to the New Blood Stage

Well, of the five bands that have got through M2TM East Midlands over the past 3 years, we have seen Incinery (thrash), Airstryke (glam), Line Of Fire (Southern/stoner/hard rock), Cruel Humanity (Black Metal) and Cacodaemonic (Blackened Death Metal). Airstryke in particular were as far from being a ...

Re: Possible Improvements to the New Blood Stage

I don't want to give the name of the person who told me which might sound like a cop out but their band did win and were told by the main man himself. I'm a reasonable guy and I'm not afraid to eat humble pie, if I have been speaking out my anus I'll withdraw anything. Not trying to cause any offen...

Re: Possible Improvements to the New Blood Stage

We've entered the MTTM twice and got to the final twice (that's not a boast) so we've seen what goes on. The problem is, and I've had this confirmed by a very reliable source who shall remain unnamed, is that the vast majority of times the band has already been picked before the judge even steps th...

Come back Jemini, all is forgiven.

I think we should get a band with a really offensive band name to go for Eurovision. Would kill to hear Terry Wogan say "Anal Cunt" or something like that. United Kingdom - no points!

Re: What has made you happy today

Have managed to kick the nicotine habit. Not a single cigarette smoked since I threw my half full packet out of the window of my car on the evening of December 23rd. Have tried to give up before but have always failed. I know that I still have a long way to go (I first started smoking in 1983!) but ...

Re: What has made you happy today

Finally getting hold of a DAT player so I can transfer the old master tapes of my old band Cabala.

Lo and behold a MySpace site! We were never going to set the world alight but it was great fun!

Got my new double coloured vinyl remastered copies of "History of a Time to Come" and "Dreamweaver". Absolutely beautiful!
