Our number five group The Day The Sky Fell. Is a new band,but some familiar faces. Axcel and Travis return to the battle ground seasoned practiced and ready with their metelcore meltdown Endless Bottle. These two young lads kick it up a notch with this one. Travis’s growling lows and highes set a tone that Axcel’s cleanes fit perfectly into. Top notch guitar work from this French phenomenon flows effortlessly from his fingertips and shreds the shit out of your earballs. Beginning to end a great way to kick off the show. After that we bring you the poppy Australian group New Nobility. Their song Galactic sounded as if it was poured smoothly out of a can. With its easy to handle musical tones, and perfectly produced vocals you’ll be left with no doubt of it’s inclusion worthiness once you realize that you head is totally bobbing and you have a smile on your face.A little commercial and a lot retro this is a fantastic tune. Onward however we must go. Our number three ranked submission was Da Small Tragoediaz with the crushing track Da Deuce Doesn’t Believe in God Part 4 (Featuring Amoeba & Nam) One of Adams favorite tracks of the month he tells us how much he really enjoyed this band in our recap discussion due out next Monday. This group is a collaboration machine with great guest singers, as well as artists from all over the globe. A slight electro vibe remains constant as the vocals hit your earballs with variety, style, and note after note of pure originality. Now finally. The moment that these Top Two heavy weights have been waiting for. The moment that will possibly go down in history as the biggest baddest The Unsigned Countdown Battle royal of all time! North Carolina born and breed Drayton Road against Chicago brewed Maggot Twat. Again please take a moment once you’ve listened to vote for you favorite band. Maggot Twat’s 10 O’ Clock Horror Stories was a innovative assault with it’s inhaling vocals, Squealing guitar, deadly bass, and a comedic puppet killing it on drums. While Drayton Roads Sound The Trumpets was a epic build up featuring soaring vocals, Great production, and a real feel of a genuine love for making music. Both Bands are worthy of the honor, but which one will you pick as May’s winning contender? As always please support every band featured. Thats what this project is all about. Independents also make quality music, and are more deserving of your attention and support.
