The conveyor belt of awesome talent continues on the BEAT100 Music Video Network with three brand new chart toppers. Another hard fought contest between hundreds of emerging new artists and bands has ended and top of the pile is Blackpool's (UK) best known Punk/Rock outfit, The Senton Bombs, scooping the top prize of $400 for their brilliant original song and video 'Chapter Zero'. It's the first time a punk band has took first place on the popular BEAT100 site but it's very well deserved after receiving over two thousand votes from other musicians and music fans on the network.
Speaking to BEAT100 News the band said “Our biggest influences are bands like Aerosmith, AC/DC, Bad Religion, The Clash, Danko Jones, Gluecifer, Megadeth, NOFX, The Ramones, Rancid and The Supersuckers. Our 3rd album 'Chapter Zero' is getting released on STP Records on 27/09/13 with the launch party at the infamous Tache rock venue in Blackpool with support from CSOD and Dischord. We stumbled across BEAT100 on Facebook. After joining up we quickly made a lot of new friends, great bands and performers, with continued interaction across our other sites. From being a little uncertain over a relatively new site we have had an excellent experience and would highly recommend it to new artists and bands!.”
Second place and a cash award of $200 went to a very talented youngster from Gibraltar, Tiffany Ferrary for her wonderful cover of the hit Leona Lewis track 'Footprints In The Sand'. The young singer saw off the challenge of some far more experienced artists to firmly establish herself as a new network favourite, receiving just short of two thousand votes from fellow BEAT100 members. Not only is the gifted youngster proving a hit on on BEAT100, but she has already recently released her first album 'Music and Me', a lovely collection of well-known songs sang with that unique stage presence and heartfelt emotion which is part of Tiffany's uniqueness.
Third place and $100 was awarded to Madwork, an Italian band who describe their sound as 'Electronic Metal'. No strangers to success on BEAT100, this is their 2nd time in the top three and it's easy to see why they are proving so popular amongst other users. They are different, they make explosive tracks and great videos and are quickly amassing a large online following.
“We are have been playing together since 1999, when the Madwork project was started, so our musical background is very heterogeneous and mixes the different influences of each component. As a form of agreement, we feel similarity with bands like Korn, Rammstein, Depeche Mode, Dream Theatre, and so on. But we also like 80's pop, electronic music, hardcore and melodic Swedish metal, classical music” Explained the band, adding, “We found BEAT100.com surfing the web: we were searching for sites where to publish our latest music video and immediately we saw the great differences between BEAT100 and other platforms. BEAT100 is not only a sharing platform, but a real community, is made by and for musicians. Since we signed up, we have become deeply involved in what is a marvelous site, it's like our second home now! We thank all the voters for the support!”
