    Order from Chaos ain't related to black metal in any way as far as I know, and Revenge and Conqueror are Canadian

  • isn't canada a state in the US?

  • Illegitimate ;) We think of them as our retarded stepbrother that we never invite to family reunions, yet somehow are still considered as part of us

  • December Wolves
    Hellvetron (not sure if they count, but I see Boner voted for them, monkey see, monkey do).

    + Angelcorpse

  • Is this USBM, or America as a continent?

    Only US, I think.

    Krohm

  • Just going from what's already been posted, I'll add more later:

    Brown Jenkins
    Deafheaven
    Grinning Death's Head
    Morgirion
    Vattnet Viskar
    Angelcorpse
    Bone Awl

    I do think 64 bands is too many to be honest. What are the chances of the tourney being finished?

  • Not Eligible(as of right now):
    Hellvetron
    Angelcorpse
    Order From Chaos
    Withered
    Iconoclast Contra
    Perdition Temple

    Withered


    Withered only has a very minimal sludge influence. So I don't see why they can't apply. Also, I don't see why Goatwhore can be part of the tournament and not Angelcorpse and other blackened death metal bands

  • Deafhevean
    Necrite

    The only 2 bands I love and know of at the same time which aint on the list. Get em votes up.

  • I can see Perdition Temple and Order From Chaos maybe being a bit more on the death metal side, but Hellvetron? It's just slower paced black metal, but black metal nonetheless.

    Order From Chaos is definitely a LOT more on the Death Metal side, but Hellvetron should qualify, I believe.

  • Ok first of all: One fucking vote for Thralldom... from me. The fuck?

    Second of all, this isn't the American Black/Death Tournament. Bands that are more DM than BM, no matter the ratio, will not be allowed.

  • Iconoclast Contra is mostly BM IMO. Same for early Angelcorpse.

    I run a Facebook music page, True Metal and Punk: https://www.facebook.com/TrueMetalAndPunk (the stuff posted is not limited to metal and punk but it is primarily from those two genres).
  • Tell you what... I get some more votes for Thralldom... maybe I loosen the restrictions.
