Pedal Cup Bracket 2 FINALS CHAMPIONThe dust has finally cleared and we have a clear cut winner by a mile and there is nothing controversial about the win. BABYMETAL won the match fair and square with the power of their fan base. I’ve seen this happen over the years during the Pedal To The Metal Tournaments when the fan bases of Kreator, Destruction, and Queensryche all led them to be winners. I post a link of the tournament to every single band’s page giving everyone a equal shot at winning and they did just that beating Behemoth 334 to 80. I gave everyone three options on how to vote and the fan base killed it and showed up in style for sure. It was definitely one heck of a win for the Japanese Kawaii Metal band, but that wasn’t the only match you could vote on. We also had the third place match that saw the final four runner ups Moonspell take on Morbid Angel. Moonspell jumped out to an early lead and believe me they never looked back earning them a third place finish. It’s sad that this is over for now and it won’t be until 2022 until we do another one, but we have the Euros coming up in two years so we’ll see you there. Once again, Congratulations to BABYMETAL!

pedalcup trophyThat is right metal heads, the finals of the first ever Pedal Cup (the World Cup of Metal) is here and this is the moment you have been voting for. You the fans, took two bands in Behemoth (Poland) and BABYMETAL (Japan) and you voted them all the way to the finals and it was quite the run for both bands. Unfortunately, only one of them will walk away from the tournament as the first ever Pedal Cup champion. We also have the third place match which is traditionally played in the FIFA World Cup and we are going to keep that tradition as Portugals’ Moonspell take son US Death Metal legends Morbid Angel for the right to Bronze. Today, we are also revealing the Pedal Cup trophy which we dedicated and designed some specifics of it to honor the legacy of one of music and Metal’s greatest inspirations in the late Motorhead Frontman/bassist Lemmy Kilmister. There is a Spade from the Ace Of Spades on the top of the trophy along with a coin of Lemmy on the bottom and the Pedal To The Metal logo beneath that. As always, there are three ways to vote with one being on the Facebook page, the other on Twitter, and the last way to vote right here on this blog. You have 24 Hours to decide who is the first ever Pedal Cup Champion and the third place band. Good luck!!!!

You guys came to play in the knockout stage, once again in the quarterfinals, and I want to thank every single one of you guys for that because without you none of this is possible. Now we have some interesting matches moving forward as the final four was set last night. We have Moonspell (Portugal), BABYMETAL (Japan), Morbid Angel (USA), and Behemoth (Poland) all eyeing to be the world champions of Metal. Moonspell has done pretty well for themselves as they easily defeated Egypt’s Crescent before holding the edge against Dimmu Borgir in the Quarterfinals. Now, they are tasked with trying to defeat the band who has recorded the most amount of votes in the tourney in Japan’s BABYMETAL. BABYMETAL scored a record amount of votes in their first match against Belgium’s Leng Tch’e (44 votes total) before surviving one heck of a match against Brazil’s own Sepultura (34 votes combined). The other match features two powerhouses of their respective subgenres. In one corner, you have Death Metal legends Morbid Angel who is the only band to record two straight shut out wins going against Blackened Death Metal act Behemoth who took care of business against Cradle Of Filth and Arch Enemy. It’s anyone’s ball game, but remember you guys have 24 HRS to vote, so vote for the bands you love and have some fun with it. As always, there are three ways to vote with one being on the Facebook page, the other on Twitter, and the last way to vote right here on this blog.
