The events are intimate to fans and professional to the artist with house sound and light technicians and backstage facilities for headline acts. In 2012 and 2013 The Roadhouse hosted The West Midlands heats for the Metal To The Masses competition and they were both a great success! Birmingham death-metallers Kataleptic were overall winners in 2012 and 2013 winners Gehtika stormed the final to a sell out crowd! 2014 will see The Roadhouse host the competition for the third year running and it is gearing up to be even better than before! Apply now for your band to take part in The West Midlands heats for Metal To The Masses at The Roadhouse Birmingham.

By adding more prizes of their own and with the incredible growing quality of metal in Cornwall & Devon, this year’s competition is set to be huge! Once again the competition will be held at White Rabbit in Plymouth, the perfect venue to hold such a prestigious event. Voted highly within 2013's NME 'Best Small Venue' competition, the White Rabbit has played host to bands such as The Misfits, Soulfly, Gorgoroth and many more during it's legacy in Plymouth's city centre.

Beat Generator is a small venue located in the centre of Dundee which has played host to a huge variety of touring bands from a vast spectrum of genre’s and is definitely to stranger to metal shows. Boasting a capacity of 250 people, a bar, and a skilled in-house sound tech, it is a prime venue for shows of any kind. My own personal Metal 2 The Masses campaign for 2014 is simply to give a band a real chance at a breakthrough – being good friends with many of the bands in the local scene, I am fully aware of how hard they work and the chance to help a band who is relatively unknown outside their own area play Bloodstock Open Air is one that is too good to pass up. I myself am a fan of the festival, though having never attended yet, it has been ever present in my “Best Line-up” lists for European Festivals, and this year is proving to raise the bar even further

Continuing on from the past 2 years, the M2tM Campaign for Liverpool promises to be one hell of an event. Already being talked about, and bands already enquiring into the possibility of competing there is a lot of interest already in the event. Teaming up with The Lomax again as the venue to host all the events, not only is it home to the cheapest bar in Liverpool, and the friendliest staff, it is also hosts a sound which is enormous too… and is still intimate enough to make every night a party night!! In typical Whiplash style I am looking to bring a high profile band to Liverpool for the final…. Watch this space!!!
