pedalThe Pedal To The Metal March Madness style tournament is coming back and once again it will be decided by you the fans. You will be given all of the matches and the brackets followed by the opportunity to vote. This year, we are doing things a little different this year and we have updated the tournament as far as bands are concerned and the divisions have new names. There is the Lemmy Kilmister division (formerly the Hard Rock division), teh Jeff Hanneman division (formerly Thrash Metal division), the Chuck Schuldiner division (formerly the Extreme Metal division), and the Ronnie James Dio division (formerly the Power Metal divsion). One of the new rules, we have enforced is that if you’re band is no longer functional (meaning touring, recording, etc.) then you will not be in the tournament. That sees the exit of a lot of bands that used to participate in the tournament.

With that being said, we have a couple of qualifying matches for you guys for the Kilmister and Dio divisions. The first match up in the Kilmister division for you guys to decide on is between Sixx: A.M. taking on Bobaflex. Motley Crue is over and no longer able to be in the tournament so we decided to throw in Nikki’s new band, but they have t qualify to get in and the same goes for tournament newcomers Bobaflex. Bobaflex won the Rock Album Of The Year award with help from their amazing fanbase. Can that fanbase do the same once again for this band in this tournament? The other match up in the Dio division sees a match up of titans as Helloween take on Lizzy Borden. Lizzy Borden has never made the tournament before and they’re looking to do so by taking out tournament veterans Helloween for that final spot. The voting will start today and you guys will have until Wednesday March 9TH at 11PM Eastern time to decide who is in and who is out fromt hese two matches. Good luck to all the bands, get voting:
