Bloodstock Metal To The Masses Belfast Final Feature

 

 

The final of Belfast’s Metal To The Masses final has arrived! Six bands go into battle this Friday for a slot on the New Blood stage at Bloodstock 2017. 

We had planned to fully cover this years Belfast based competition, but a health issue on my behalf left me in a way I could have only started covering this over half way through. Taking that into consideration, I decided it would be bad form to start at that point… 

Overdrive, Planetmosh and Jetrocker cover and promote the Dublin based event, so we decided to focus on the NI competition instead as it doesn’t really get any coverage down south. 

To make up for this, I’m going to be starting a running feature “Northern Rampage” to hopefully open a few eyes and ears to the utterly excellent scene in Belfast at present. Then cover Metal To The Masses properly in 2018. 

Now, that’s that out of the way and nobody probably gave a fuck… We now focus on the bands performing at this years final. I’ll keep the descriptions very brief and let you check out their music here and if you like them? Links will be there for you to follow…
