Dark Tranquillity:  WHERE DEATH IS MOST ALIVE TOUR 2010 - And the winners are...
The final voting round for the local support contest for the upcoming DARK TRANQUILLITY "WHERE DEATH IS MOST ALIVE TOUR 2010" came to an end. Close to 600 bands from all over Europe submitted to the contest and Century Media picked the 158 best to take part of the voting. Jens Prueter, Head Of A&R Century Media Records Europe:

"I know it's a cliché that a record label A&R will never listen to any demo bands are sending in. But me and my college Dario Dumancic listened to ALL 600 bands!!! Why we picked only 158? Because not every band seemed to be ready to play in front of Dark Tranquillity's fans because these fans bought a ticket for the shows and deserve a certain quality. And most other bands were too far away from playing anything to close to Death Metal. Where Death Is Most Alive? Everywhere! It was great to see again how vivid our scene is and what a great amount of great bands is out there from far north Iceland to the southern shores of Spain – just everywhere. Unfortunately only one band per show could win, but we want to thank all bands for taking part and we want to wish all of them good luck for the future – you deserve it! And we want to thank the close to 50.000 metalheads who took the time, listened to the bands and voted for them! We know that there has been some criticism about the technical side of the voting process and that some bands might plaid unfair to generate more votes. We promise to come up with a more fair and saver online voting system next time. But we hope you will enjoy your favourite bands on the tour with Dark Tranquillity and Insomnium. Horns Up!"

The winners are……
