“BLOODSTOCK M2TM IRELAND” – ‘Heat 5’ Results & Updates… Posted: 13/03/2015 by John O'Brien
Heat five of the ‘Bloodstock – M2TM’ competition was held on the 07th March last in Fibbers, with another six hopefuls taking part and battling it out for chabce to compete in the final and win the much coveted prize of playing at this years Bloodstock Festival.
Unfortunatley AXIAL SYMMETRY had to drop out the day before, which meant that ANIMATOR, PURSUIT OF RUIN, THE DEVIL WANTS HER SWAGGER BACK, EXZELTIC and MY FATHER THE KING all had their eyes on the nights prize. With each gave it their all but in the end only two bands were guaranteed to qualify for the semi-final stages. Easily one of the more difficult heats to call, as each and every band performing are superb in their own right. But the end results were…
It’s no real surprise to see TDWHSB and ANIMATOR making it through! Formed from the remnants of previous band ZERO TOLERANCE, TDWHSB released their “Sign Here” EP late last year and have been gigging furiously in support of it, winning over audiences at every turn. Definitely a band with purpose in mind, they are sure to go places if they keep up their current level of commitment. And ANIMATOR are by far one of the best thrash bands in Ireland today! Their “Blacklisted” album was one of the highlights from 2013. Their brand of thrash is precise and devastating. How they haven’t garnered more attention is both a mystery and a crying shame. Hopefully this competition will focus some much deserved spotlight on the band.
