2017-headerFrom day one, I stated that this tournament has always been about the fans voting for their favorite bands and that without the help of the bands sharing the posts there would be no tournament. With that being said, I wanted to say congratulations to Queensrÿche and their fanbase on being the 2017 Pedal To The Metal Champions. They brought the title back to the Dio division where it had been twice before and they are also the first band to defeat a Chuck Schuldiner division band who dominated the last two years. I was going to initiate the mercy rule after about two days of voting, but the truth is that I didn’t have internet access for three days so I let it keep going. The cool fact about it is that the band won by the highest margin ever in the tournament’s history. The band won the tournament by a whopping 1,553 votes which shatters the previous margin which was 285 votes. So, if you are a Queensrÿche fan then you deserve a pat on the back for not listening to the haters and showing your allegiance because this is what the tournament is all about. I want to also take the time to thank Queensrÿche and any of the other bands that shared the links because again without you this tournament would not be possible. I am not 100% sure if the tournament is going to come back next year, but if it does then Queensrÿche fans, it’s time to take hold of the flame and build an Empire by voting them to the finals again. We’ll see you all next year and show some love by liking my Facebook page here.

It has all come down to this very point where you the fans get to decide who is going to be crowned the 2014 Pedal To The Metal Tournament Champion. Will Judas Priest be the first ever band to go back to back or will the fan driven Cinderella finish off the Cinderella run (Pun Intended)? For this round, you have until next Sunday (March 30, 2014) to decided and vote who the new champion will be. So, as always do your duty and vote and spread the word.

The Finals











So, the finals have been set and what a turn of events the Final Four was. We had one match that was neck and neck while we had another match that was a complete and utter blowout. I said before that Cinderella has had some very powerful fans that have taken them through some titans of rock and metal and the final four was no different. The band secured almost 81% of the vote to defeat the mighty German rock band Scorpions. For AC/DC and Judas Priest, there match had a completely different result that was expected. Their match was literally so close that it came down to the wire and Judas Priest has a chance to defend their crown once again winning their match by one vote. Last year saw Motley Crue not get the chance to defend their title, so Judas Priest will be the first to try. The chance to vote will be up tonight and this week you will have until next Sunday to vote.
