Congratulations to MARTYR DE MONA for making it through to Round 3 of this year's Surface Unsigned Festival.
As Martyr de Mona exploded onto the stage at The Custard Factory in Birmingham last night, the buzz in the crowd was phenomenal. The band put on a spellbinding and energy fuelled set, winning them the highest number of votes and securing them a spot in the third round of the Birmingham leg of the festival. (Check this page for updates on the next round at the Barfly).
It's refreshing to see how far this band have come in such a short space of time. Not long ago, Martyr de Mona were virtual unknowns just waiting to be discovered. Now, this band have firmly imprinted their blend of hard edged guitar riffs and infectiously penetrative hooks with anthem written all over them in peoples brains and are fast becoming the darlings of the Birmingham metal scene. This band are going to be everywhere within the next twelve months - look out for them in a town near you.
Remember where you saw them first and if you like what you hear, come down and experience the phenomen that is Martyr de Mona for yourselves!! They will truly rock your socks off. http://www.myspace.com/martyrdemona
