Lots of upcoming news, updates to website/social media pages, etc. in the near future. For now, we thought we'd give you the teaser list of categories for the 1st Annual "BEAST COAST MUSIC AWARDS". This is going to be an absolute blast. It's looking like the Awards Gala will be the Friday night of the event, with bands playing during intermissions and one band to cap off the night. Then Saturday will be full-on music for about 12 hours!!!
And the categories are.....
- "Heavy Band of the Year"
- "Best Heavy Album of 2019"
- "Best New Heavy Band"
- "Best Live Show"
- "Best Self-Promoting Band"
- "Best Tribute Act"
- "Best Live Performance Photographer"
- "Media Supporter of the Year"
- "Best Merch"
- "Best Lead Singer"
- "Best Lead Guitarist"
- "Best Bassist"
- "Best Drummer"
and of course, for some extra laughs and fun....
- "Cheesiest Tribute Act"
- "Band Most Likely To Embellish Their Biography"
- "Band With Best Hair"
- "Band Most Likely to Still Be Playing Opener Slots on Monday Night at Gus' Pub in 10 Years"
If anyone has a suggestion on a category we should add, we are open to ideas.
We were also thinking of throwing in a "Battle Vest Fashion Show" to make all those big metal dudes feel sexy...…

AMAZING NEWS! Due to sponsorship generosity, it has been decided that
100% OF TICKET PROCEEDS will go to the performers at Maritime Metal & Hard Rock Festival 8. Our way of giving back to the bands that have worked hard to keep this event alive. This is something we’re extremely proud of as a grass-roots event and we look forward to bringing more info. A MAJOR step forward for bands being able to compensate themselves for their hard work and dedication. Dates and venue info for 2020 coming very soon! We will also soon have info on the 1st Annual “Beast Coast Music Awards”.

We are just a few weeks away from launching the first batch of promo/details for the 1st annual “Beast Coast Music Awards”. The first step will be acquiring our nominees list. After that, the four most-nominated acts for each category will go into voting phase. The nomination process involves YOU! The voting phase includes everyone who signs up for the poll. The awards ceremony will take place on the Friday of Maritime Metal & Hard Rock Festival 8. The ceremony will be followed by performances by two of the Maritimes best heavy acts. The winner of “Best Heavy Band of 2019” will be offered a well-paid slot opening for Saturday’s headlining act.
This is going to be an extreme amount of fun with massive amounts of hilarity.
If you’d like to be an Award Presenter at the awards show, send a message to
We look forward to everyone coming together to enjoy the heavier side of Maritime music and giving some bands the credit they deserve. Like “Band With Best Merch”, “Best Self-Promoting Band”, “Best Heavy Album of 2019”, but also “Cheesiest Tribute Band”, “Band Most Likely to Still Be Headlining Gus’ Pub on a Tuesday Night in Ten Years” and much more. It’s going to be a great way to have some fun and get some well-earned laughs. The event’s main funder will most certainly get the worst of it....... and he will love every second of it.”
