    Metal 2 Masses once again reunites Cornwall & Devon with bands from both regions taking part in one competition with the amazing prize of playing Bloodstock and possibly Metal Camp & Wacken looming large. This year Nazgul Agency & Cornwall Metal Society joins forces with the plan to put Cornwall & Devon on the map within the Metal Atlas. 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
