UG, for the first time I'm asking for your guys' help!

My band (Thorns Of Creation) has entered a competition in which the prize is a spot on the main stage at the Taste Of Chaos tour when it comes through Portland, OR.

The way it goes is like this: bands from the area sign up for the comp, then people vote to decide the top 20 out of all of them. Those 20 bands go on to play in a Battle of the Bands, the winner of which gets the Taste of Chaos spot.

Even if we don't win the BOTB, the chance to be on the bill is still a great oppurtunity. The show is at a major venue (the Roseland Theatre, I believe), there's going to be a lot of exposure, and I'm willing to bet there is going to be a few industry types there. After all, they're the ones who decide the winner.
As long as we're in the top 20 by the time voting ends, we're on the bill. So I'm asking for you're guys' help. It only takes a few seconds to vote, and you can do it once every day. Even if you only vote once, it brings us that much closer to the Battle of the Bands.

Go to our site here: Thorns Of Creation myspace
There is a link to the Battle of the Bands page with all the info as well as the way to vote. Feel free to drop us a line if you feel like it!

I really appreciate any votes you guys can throw our way, and hopefully we'll see you Northwestern based UGer's at the show!

Thanks! Definately grateful for it.
Yeah, Taste of Chaos isn't the *ahem* most "metal" tour out there. But the amount of exposure we'd get from this is too good to pass up, especially for an underground band.

Oh crap, I'd forgotten about that Battle of the Bands thing for ToC... I hope someone good wins around here, or else it's gonna be 3 crap sets (them, cancer bats, and pierce the veil) in a row.

But yeah, I dropped a vote for you guys.

Yeah, I never really got around to doing the profile thing until maybe a month ago. Even now, I never really check it, hah.

Whoah...that "ToC" totally threw me off. That's how a lot of people refer us, and then I noticed that you're from across the country. I was like, "What? How does he know about us?" Thanks for the vote, though.

You shouldn't headbang without the proper neck brace.

Edit: Wow it's amazing that you've been here since 2002 but only have 2 friends.


He doesn't need friends. He works (or at least used to, I think) at a porn store.

I remember one of TS's epic threads about some swinger people that came to get it on in the store works/ed at one time (I think there may have been midgets involved).

I can describe this comment in so many ways:
- Oh, irony, eh "Butt Rayge"?
- Asking for win = fail.
- School example of trying too hard.
- I suddenly remember why UG discriminates based on joindate.
- Without words:

Don't make me keep going.

I'm not familiar with all the bands there, but I can think of a few. Check out Across The Sun, Stonecreep, Agolloch, and Among The Decayed. There's a few more, I just can't remember them all. Plus alot of good bands from the Central Oregon area, check our top friends list for them.

I am happily not employed there anymore.

Our vocalist always cracks jokes about "pickin' up pennies" at our shows.
