Looks like K-Lacura won Oxford and Hundred Year Old Man won Lincolnshire.

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.

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.

No idea what they are like, but all three have terrible names. :lol:

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.

I won't be listening to them after looking at their FB page.

Thankfully easily avoided.
