Madness reigned last night as THE ROCK SOLID PRESSURE RADIO COMPETITIONS came roaring back onto the airwaves. The gate was opened once again for the annual rite of passage into an untold destiny. The first night of battle saw a crushing victory from LEFT OF REASON (WI). They took the crown last night and we’ll crown another victor next Monday night. All hail our new ‘God Of War’..They rode off into victory and secured their name among the Hallowed Halls elite. The ‘Left Of Reason’ fanbase is also to be hailed. It was a serious, crushing win!! They literally ‘destroyed their opponents in battle. 3 bands fought hard last night, and 3 bands totally sucked in battle..Here’s the stats
LEFT OF REASON (WI) Grand Prize Winners
FIST OF RAGE (OK) Second Place
THIRA (MN) Third Place
DAYS OF MAYHEM (IL) Fourth Place, but was totally crushed in battle!!
CATASTROPHE ME (NY) Totally crushed in battle!! ZERO VOTES!! Unworthy opponent
EYES FOR FIRE (IN) Totally crushed in battle!! ZERO VOTES!! Unworthy opponent
*We hate it when we’re forced to promote unworthy opponents, but we get them every year. Why would you enter a competition if you’re not going to rally your troops to FIGHT? We could have had ‘real’ competitors in that slot. The battle was mainly between 3 bands last night and we admire them all for their valiant effort on the battlefield. NEXT MONDAY NIGHT it’s all METAL bands so we expect a WAR to the death for ALL the competitors. Here’s the lineup.
MEN WITHOUT ARMIES (NY)
EYES LIKE 20 (IN)
THE VIOLET HOUR (AZ)
PSYCHO SPOON (SC)
