Swindon - Metal 2 The masses Winners
After its debut show on Halloween 2009 to a sell-out crowd of 200 opening for Burning Skies and Evita, Senturia â€“ a metalcore 5 piece from Bristol â€“ have hit the live scene hard, incessantly and mercilessly, performing all over the Midlands and South of England supporting the likes of Shai Hulud, Carcer City, Shadow Law, etc. With musical influences that cross over many metal genres, and intense and memorable live performances that border on mayhem, Senturia have been gaining strong popularity and radio play in the South West, as well as acclaimed reviews such as â€œThese boys are hotter than Milla Jovovich covered in hot sauce and roasted in the fires of a rocket!â€ (Tom Himself, Swindon 105.5 FM)

CREDIT TO DEMENTIA
Credit To Dementia initially formed in 2008 in Cornwall. Influenced by many different forms of metal and other musical styles. After numerous line up changes the band has been ripping it up all over Cornwall with the aim of taking their unique blend of metal to a wider stage. The current line up has been performing since early 2010 and are now ready to achieve their aim and play to the metal masses!
So what is our style and what do we sound like?? Some people think we're a thrash band, others think we're death metal and some probably just think we're a load of shit so come check us out, listen to our recordings and decide for yourself!

Brighton - Metal 2 The Masses Winners
Mastodon, Neurosis, The Mars Volta and Pink Floyd are some of the many great artists who inspire and help us to carry on pushing music forward.
Always writing, our sound is constantly evolving, moving and growing beyond our expectations.
We feel most at home performing live and playing our music the way it is meant to be heard. Our live show allows us to express ourselves and demonstrate the passion we feel for what we do.
We have been making a name for ourselves over the past few years gigging with great bands such as Textures, No Made Sense, Tesseract, Malefice, Church of Misery and many others.

London - Metal 2 The Masses Winners
Shrapnel formed in 2009 and in less than eighteen months have achieved more than most do in years. With appearances at the Scala in London, Full Thrash Assault Festival 2010, a support slot with Sepultura and now Bloodstock open Air 2010, the bands hard work and determination is more than apparent.
With a â€˜no nonsenseâ€™ approach to Thrash, Shrapnel deliver on both CD and in a live setting. From screaming guitar solos to the crushing drum fills Shrapnel are reminiscent of the Glory Days of Thrash Metal but not so much they try to re-create them. If you like old school Thrash your not going to want to miss Shrapnel

London - Unsigned Addition
AGHAST are a four piece Extreme Metal Band from London, their music has most often been described as "Extreme Metal".
They take inspiration from from the Trash - Infused sounds of the Scandinavian Scene and the Groove - Orientated Metal of the USA in the early 1990's.
Their style incorporates the unbridled aggression and pummeling blast-beats of early death metal with a nod to the more recent crop of "Metalcore" and "Deathcore" acts.
The AGHAST! sound is forward-thinking, uncompromising and instantly recognisable.
