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.


Fuck just checked out Na Cruithne. Really wish they had won

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.

Does anyone know who won in Inverness last night? Checked the bands' profiles this morning, but couldn't initially see anything.

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

Same, massive shame they lost. Folk bands at Bloodstock are becoming a rare sight these days :(

I was hoping for Alastria who are a great power metal act.

So far, there's been 1 symphonic (Aonia), 1 folk (Na Cruithne) and 1 power metal act (Alastria) who have been in the finals. None of them got through. They all lost to stoner/sludge or death metal bands...

One thing I would like to say on Aonia. I really like them, and enjoyed all their sets in the Sheffield tournament, but they weren't really in consideration for top 2. For me at least, it was a straight shoot out between Ba'al and Archelon.

Semi Final 1 in Manchester was last night with Voodoo Blood getting through in 1st and Skeletal Damage in 2nd (which makes this the 3rd time they've got to a final in 3 different regions). I pegged Voodoo Blood as a certain finalist and possible winner as soon as they announced they were entering, and Skeletal Damage I've really enjoyed on all 3 occasions they've played, so I'm pretty happy with that as a result.

Saurr and Kringer and the Battle Kats were both very enjoyable again, nothing against them, but they were of noticeably lower standard when matched up against the other 2.
