    • Metal Tournament
      Thank you for the suggestions! The tournament would be run on twitter with followers from all over (hopefully) so if you have a twitter account, feel free to follow to vote on the bands you'd like.   If not, no big deal! And thanks again \m/
    • Metal Tournament
      Sorry to say I doubt you'll find much support for the idea here. We're a small community and, at present anyway, seldom seem to discuss metal these days. I theorise it is due to the regulars all knowing each others opinions on bands.   Anyway some DM bands to consider: Lykathea Aflame, Demilich, Grave Miasma, Ulcerate, Asphyx.
    • The Movie Thread
      'Cause deep down I'm really a ten year old I saw 'Finding Dory' earlier this month. It was pretty good but 'Finding Nemo' was better.   Half tempted by 'The Conjuring II' looks by far the best of the three films based on the trailer. I've been wrong before though and honestly having hated the previous two movies (Annabel was an improvement at least) I doubt I will see it anytime soon.
    • Metal Tournament
      Greetings metal fans! I'm new to these boards, but have been a lifelong metalhead! I am interested in setting up a huge metal band tournament and would need YOUR help in the voting.  I'm sure this isn't a totally original idea, as many fans have probably done this in the past. Hell, I've even done it myself back in the primitive days of the internet (back when I had to rely solely on GUESTBOOKS to spread the word)  I am going to be putting 1024 metal bands into a bracket, and the voting will be done via twitter starting this autumn.  The last time I did this, I used 128 bands and had about 300 people participating and everyone had (I think) a fun time picking their favorites.   So if you'd be interested in having a little fun with your favorite bands (and voting against your LEAST favorites) follow us on twitter. Our handle is @ metalmastermad  We will be updating there with dates as we get closer to ROUND 1. We can use this thread here to lobby for your favorite underground/not as well known bands to be included in the tournament, and make suggestions of how to promote/ideas for the tournament!   Hope to see some people soon!   www.twitter.com/metalmastermad
