Vote or Participate In Famecast's New Metal Stage

There is an online competition going on at Famecast.com, which includes a metal "stage." This is the first season for the metal stage and Famecast's second season competition. Artists register and submit a music video, then fans vote and after 4 total rounds of voting 5 finalists from each stage are flown to Austin TX to compete in a webcast contest. The winner from each genre gets a check for $10,000. There will be a total of 12 winners - one from each stage or "genre."

The metal stage is currently open for voting, but still taking submissions through June 11.

The competition begins with the audience selecting the Top 50 artist performances. The contestant field will be narrowed each round until an ultimate winner is selected. Viewers may vote for as many artists they wish, but may only vote once per artist in each round. Advancing contestants must submit a NEW performance video when they reach the Top 10 (Round 4). Artists can choose to submit a new performance video during the Top 50 and Top 25 (Rounds 2 and 3), however, it is not required. The final five contestants from each Stage will be flown on location to compete in the FameCast 5 Finals, a live webcast where the online viewing audience selects the ultimate winner in each genre – the Famecast Fenom.

Already, some notables including At All Cost, Powerderburn and Desolate Ways are participating, as well as a number of even more underground bands. So head on over and sign up to vote or participate. Or just go and watch the videos.
