It’s the sixth annual Pedal To The Metal Tournament which has been constantly evolving from what it was in the beginning (an all 80’s rock/metal tourney) to what it is now where we check out the best of all metal that is current and active. Active is the key word in the sentence because in order to qualify for the tournament, you had to have either released an album within the last three to four years or are actively touring all the time. Two of the division have changed in which now the Ronnie James Dio division is now The Dio/Lemmy Division as the old Lemmy division changed to the Metal To The Core (play on Metal-core and Deathcore) division. That division features everyone from the New Wave Of American Heavy Metal to any active Metalcore or Deathcore acts. The tournament is going to kick off as usual because the tournament coincides with the actual March Madness Tourney except we’ve shortened a round and extended another one. The tournament begins March 17TH right here and goes all the way until April 4TH. Below you will the bracket for the tourney and all of the match ups that we have for you. As always, the matches were drawn from a hat so that the matches were totally random. There are some really interesting matches so it’ll be fun to see how you guys vote. Be ready to start voting on March 17TH!!!
