Thanks guys. It turns out a person can vote each day for each email address you have.

Wikipedia definition: Screamo, though used loosely as a slang term to describe any music that features screamed vocals, is a musical subgenre of hardcore punk which predominantly evolved from emo, among other genres, in the early 1990s. The term "screamo" was initially applied to a more aggressive offshoot of emo that developed in San Diego in 1991, which used short songs that grafted "spastic intensity to willfully experimental dissonance and dynamics

Thanks Tim. They had a personnel change a while ago so they had to take down a bunch of YouTube stuff. I will post some stuff as quick as my teenager sends it to me.

Thanks.:toast:

No, they actually found out about the movie Requiem for a Dream after they chose Requiem of a Dream as a name. They decided there was enough differences in the name that they would be OK, and wanted a band name with real meaning.

They are off to a slow start, but they only need to finish in the top 20. They have only been together as a band for about a year and have performed about 20 times. They are up against bands that have been together for several years. Thanks for the vote.....they all help.

Several bands were caught cheating using a proxy server to give themselves more votes. This allowed anonymous computer generated votes at a huge rate from one email address. All has been corrected.........my son's band was in 5th place last I heard. They will no longer be showing the vote count but, I will get updates and post accordingly.

Remember you can vote once per day per email address. For those of you who don't get a confirmation email address, check your spam folder.

I will have one of their songs up today...............for those than want to listen to it.

Again, many thanks.

Just got the update. Due to the three (at least) bands that had people cheating on the voting, they are not going to release the totals until all voting is complete January 21st. They were told they were somewhere in the top 30 bands.........the top 20 move on to stage two and play at the House of Blues in Vegas.

Thank you all for your continued support. My son sent me a demo track, but it is too large to post on here. If anyone is interested in hearing it, PM me your email address and I will send it to you.

My son Luke's band fell apart as so many do. He and his friend Matt were in the process of trying to start another band when they got word of auditions being accepted for a new band starting. Today it was announced that they both made it in the band "Kuza". It was announced on all the social media, but I have only made it as far as facebook where they can be found at KuzaOfficial.
