Yea, I've since found out from The Devil Wants Her Swagger Back who posted a status finally. A real shame as Na Cruithne sound brilliant and would bring some folk to the mix. Zhora don't do it for me.

Yea, these guys seem to have potential, describing themselves as Melodic Death Metal and listing influences such as Bloodshot Dawn, Scar Symmetry and Wintersun. No decent recordings to give them a proper listen though. Not that I can find, anyway.

Manchester Quarter Final 4:

Unfortunatly Barbarian Hermit had to pull out, I had them as a dead cert to reach the finals.

Aftermath Eternal - Worse than I remembered from the heats, some nice riffs, but a bit too much of a Metalcore vibe going on for me.

Trading Arms - Easily the worst band of the contest (and I mean that in entirety rather than just for this night or this round), still no idea how they made it out of their heat.

Gorehead - Better than in the heats, still not very good.

Prognosis - Excellent again, still my first place band for the whole thing.

Prognosis and Gorehead went through to the semis, although somehow this was with Gorehead in 1st place. I'm not going to pretend I understand this.

It looks like death metal band Infected Dead won the mammoth 10-band final in Kent.
