Follow The Deceived Wins Inaugural UG Unsigned Artist Of The Month

Ultimate-Guitar.com to feature a monthly Unsigned Artist to be entered into end-of-year Unsigned Artist of the Year Competition.

Follow The Deceived Wins Inaugural UG Unsigned Artist Of The Month
1
Follow The Deceived, featured in last month's Ultimate-Guitar.com Unsigned Artists of the Month Article have won the inaugural Ultimate-Guitar.com Unsigned Artist of the Month competition after a poll of Ultimate-Guitar.com forum members. The results rendered Follow The Deceived as the winners, after the band garnered an impressive 50% of the vote, beating competition from both Satin Gum and the Remnant Kings. Hope in Negative Spaces is an album that was almost never made. The band behind the record, Follow The Deceived, has been cursed by a start-stop characteristic unhelpful to any band hoping to build up any momentum. The band is the brain child of vocalist and guitarist, Mark Cruz , who inspires a sort of post-hardcore meets screamo blend of music that is always too heavy to be laughed at. So don't overlook Follow The Deceived. Upon winning the competition, Follow The Deceived had this to say, We would like to thank all of our fans for their continued support, and, of course, everyone that voted for us on Ultimate-Guitar.com. It's a great honor to win the Unsigned Artist of the Month! Expect more from us soon in the coming months. To find out more about Follow The Deceived, read last month's Unsigned Talent of the Month article, or follow the band at MySpace, Facebook, and Reverbnation.com. At the end of December, an article written about some of the best unsigned artists featured by Ultimate-Guitar.com in the past year or so, with the overall goal of crowning an Ultimate-Guitar.com Unsigned Artist of the Year. The winner shall be determined by a poll in the Ultimate-Guitar.com forums, more specifically, in The Pit; so you will have to be a UG member to vote for Ultimate-Guitar.com's first Unsigned Artist of the year! To enter your band for the competition, send your entry to sam.agini@ultimate-guitar.com or visit MySpace.com and Twitter.com. By Samuel Agini

    He doesn't really look like him, but the overall band image is very, very similar and yeah, the name is too close for comfort. "Coincidence", I'm sure.

    I really wish they would tell these guys to make a UG band profile for their music if they're to be featured. I really hate having to use Myspace, it never works for me.

    Quite nice and classical tones... overally they have this... power :>! I don't like to compare any musicians at all but sound a bit like A7X at the beggings. Cool music, hope to see them someday ;>. Wish u good luck .

    cool, theyve got some talent, lets hope they make the most of it. looking forward to more of these write ups on the top unsigned artists of the month, is this going to become a regular thing off of the original UAotM article?

    This will be a monthly thing, to ensure that UG promotes unsigned bands. I am also in early discussions to bring more features to this feature. I hope to cause it to make music more accessible to the UG community.

    They are not too bad actually. although im not really into this kind of music. they should probably be signed.
