Psykosis performing at M2TM Semi-Final A 2014

PSYKOSIS are the latest band to be added to this year’s Bloodstock line-up after they were crowned champions of the M2TM battle of the bands on Saturday night.

The lads went up against fiercely fierce competition and won out, much to the delight of yours truly. Unfortunately for Killface, AeSect, Dead Label!, Theories Divide and Alpheidae – the Psyko lads just couldn’t stop sexin’ the place up.

Tickets There would like to congratulate Grant, Jay, Shane and Tony the madman on the win and wish you all the best of luck at Bloodstock. F**king bring it!

1798641_279019888917045_606263842_nAnother weekend, another semi-final for the Bloodstock M2TM Irish leg. After 72,823 preliminary rounds, just under half a million entrants and literally hundreds of euro taken in by Fibber MaGees – the final is finally (not semi-finally) upon us.

On Friday night, Theories Divide, Dead Label! and Killface beat out competition from Skewered, Aeolian, Crossfire and Legion of Wolves to take their places in the Bloodstock M2TM Irish Final where they’ll compete against Semi-Final A winners Psykosis, AeSect and Alpheidae.

All six semi-final winners will compete in the grand final this Saturday at Fibbers for their chance to play this years Bloodstock Festival. Doors on the night will open at 8.00pm. Good to luck to all and c’mon my favourites Psykosis, Killface and AeSect!…and Dead Label :p All the details can be found on the Facebook Event Page.

Seriously though – these competitions are a great way of discovering new bands (and established bands) from around the country. The more rounds – the more new names you can add to your playlists.

Psykosis, AeSect and Alpheidae proceed to the M2TM Final

IMG_8777Congratulations to PSYKOSIS , AeSect and Alpheidaeon on winning Semi-Final A of the Bloodstock M2TM last night. They didn’t win it easy mind as they faced stiff competition from Nautilus, the exceptional Snowblind, who this wannabe journalist has always missed at every single gig and now has very deep regrets about not having a little more self control and catching them before; and also Between Horizons.

The three bands now move into the final for a chance to appear at Bloodstock 2014 and play alongside Megadeth, Emperor, Down, Amon Amarth, Carcass, Saxon and many more. Good timing for Psykosis as they’re planning to release their debut album, Welcome to The Psykoward, later this summer.

Well done all!

Tickets There was a bit late to outline the full Molten Battle of the Bands this year, but we’re not too late to get you in on the action for… Heat 7 (yeah, it’s silly big and complicated). Anyway €5 will get you a handy chance to catch Psykosis, Killface, Rex Shachath and Aggro-Culture battle it out for a chance to progress to the final round with an overall goal of playing this year’s Bloodstock where they’ll rub shoulders with the likes of Megadeth, Emperor, Amon Amarth and many more.
For those not to au fait with the local scene then this is your cheap chance to get down to Fibber MaGee’s and support your own. Believe me, it’s not a chore. Some of these guys can share a stage with the best of them and the others are getting there. So break with a fiver, come to Fibbers and enjoy.
