Acid Brains, The Lost Poets, I’m a Sloth, Carne Para Perra: these are the fantastic 4 who gain the semifinals of our Grungy Bands World Cup.
The first match will be Acid Brains VS. The Lost Poets a.k.a Italy VS. Sweden. The Italian stallions won with the Irishes (Otherkin didn’t defend the title won in the Female Fronted Bands World Cup by Vulpynes) with 83%; the result of the first quarter was 5-25, if they want to go to the final they have to find at least 10 votes more. The Swedishes are strong as their Viking’s roots, The Lost Poets scored 11-34 (76%) in the match against Spain that wasn’t so open as we could imagine after Round of 16. Less than 24 hours to see who could go to the final between Italy and Sweden, a challenge that reminds something to the soccer fans.
The other semifinal will start on Thursday and involves I’m a Sloth from Austria and Carne Para Perra from Chile. The Austrian got a great comeback versus the famous Australian challengers: they won 19-25 (57%) and now they need 20 votes more to gain the final. Yay, because los chilenos scored again 43 votes 72% against the famous American opponents. Carne Para Perra is the only non-European band in the semifinals. This competition seems very different from the Female one that got 4 English-spoken Nations on the final 4 (here we have Scandinavians who sing in English, Mediterraneans in English and Italian, Mittle-Europeans who sings in English and German and Southamericans in Spanish). Even the results are very different: in the Female Cup the were no Round of 16 and the quarters were poor (record 20 votes for Hands Off Gretel), but in semifinals we got a 67-50 and in the final Vulpynes won 72-39 versus Skating Polly, could the Grungy Bands World Cup’s protagonists do better?
