Dark Omen had the biggest and loudest and most participating crowd the last Battles. But I have faith, they'll get what they deserve this year.
They ALWAYS put up one HELL of a show. YEA!
But even so, it's hrd to say. Most of the bands I know, or predict, will be in this Battle will be a cutthroat.
Actually Kenny, No Tail Lights had a large and loud crowd. And I believe "TOPRELLIK" also had a large and very loud crowd. I was there both nights and I don't even recall "DARK OMEN".

They even had TOPRELLIK play last on Sat night to keep "their" large , loud crowd around till the end so someone would still be there.

How about impartial judges? People who are not close friends with the bands or the sponsors? I know how the judges were picked last year.

BOTB is a FUNDRAISER guys! The bands PAY because the money is going to charity. It is not about giving the bands a cash prize. Maybe the BOTB organizers need to make sure that they publicize how much money each charity receives after the contest but they are not walking out of there with any money. I do agree that it has become more of a COMPETITION than it needs to be. Maybe it just needs to be a music festival and not a contest.

I LOVE Backwater Burial. They are gods. YEA!

Scott's drums are from heaven and hell, Michael's bass is out-of-this-world, Mike's vocals are of a horny angel on fire, the guitarists Bobby and Jordy are guitr train demons. YEA!

They are professional rght down to the core, and with an edge...YEA!

I was there both night...both Battles...and Dark Omen had the loudest (not the only band that had a loud crowd, there were a handful of "loud-crowd" bands, Dark Omen had the loudest). The first Battle, Welfare Cadillac had the bigest, but Dark Omen still had louder.

I'm not big on No Tale Lights (I respect them, though), an I love TopRellik.

It's not that I don't like them. I'm just not big into them. I've seen about 3 of their shows, and they're okay...nothing to write home about.
BUT they should keep on grooving, man. YEA!

Pit any unsigned band against Dark Omen, and you'll always have my answer.
You must be

You must be fron Va. or something!! Why would a band so good as you say they are come all the way to Somerset to compete in a BOTB? I just checked out they'er myspace and I know 6 bands right off the bat that would wipe the floor with them!!!
You host music shows, and you talk about a band from another state that is so much better than the bands you try to get to play your shows? Shame on you!!! Don King, you'll never become!!

First off, if your next reply is nothing less than an intellectual conversation, then leave me out of it.

Second of all, there are 5 or 6 different Dark Omens on MySpace...all unsigned. MY Dark Omen is this www.myspace.com/darkomentheband
The recording sucks ass, but you get the idea. "Sympathy", whom the lead vocalist Jacob wrote, is my all-time favorite song. I love it. "Hell's On Fire" and "Don't Fear Me" I wrote.

Actually, I am trying to get a band from Bothel, WA (Deathbeat, check them out on my top friends on MySpace *). I'm also getting several bands from around the region to come to it. I not only support Somerset local music, but ALL unsigned music. So no, I feel no shame at all. SO yea, I talk about MANY bands from out of state...Deathbeat, Chaos, Reflexxx, Sizter Machyne, Tommy Foxx, Sinaria, Angora, Sabrina Korva, Toxic Minds, and many more...even out of nation...Lindi Ortega, Emm Gryner, Beyon-D-Lusion, and more. Hell, Days Of The New started in Dugger, IN and relocated to Louisville...now there someplace else now.

It will be Janruary 2nd and 3rd 2009 (only dates they could get) at the Center in Somerset, KY.
They are looking for ALL kinds of bands. So if you got a band, join it. There will be a lot of recognition.

Also, get bands from all over. Whether there from FL, WA, CA, NY, OH, TN, KY get them over here for the Battle.
Chances are, you'll love the show.
