I think it was the other day. I've no idea who won as I couldn't make it. Can't find anything online either.


Don't worry la, I was there. Reaper won the new blood slot and Biggus Riffus are on the Jager


I'm surprised any one was there. They aren't exactly the best at advertising things. :lol:



Reaper are a decent young Thrash band. When I say, young they look about twelve. :lol:

I don't know much about Biggus Riffus apart from they obviously took their name from this.

Looks like Raze the Void won last night. Also looks like Everest Queen may have been given a spot too.

London M2TM continued a long standing tradition of putting through the worst band of the night. This year's lucky recipients were Sentience, a prog tech band.

Also going through (to play on the Jägermeister stage) were Bangover, a thrash band, which was well deserved. They'd risen to the occasion and played a far, far better set than the last time I'd seen them, and they were the band of the evening for me.

Overall, a pretty weak group of finalists. If that's supposed to be the best London has to offer, it doesn't say much about the quality of the scene.

I dunno, deathwave do print flyers and have an online presences. And there was quite the turnout for the final, even if I think EBGB's is too small a venue and the drinks are too damned expencive.

There might be a bit of an uproar when people actually listen to Seething Akira...

So we know every winner now. I'd say there's actually been a bit more variety than most years. Power metal and Black metal are still completely underrepresented in the competition, of course, but at least this year not every band is bland death metal, bland metalcore or bland stoner. Definitely looking forward to watching a few bands this year.
