Are you a musician under 19 years old?

If you’re a metal drummer upset that there isn’t a competition for you to win, stop worrying. Sick Drummer magazine is starting an online contest called The Blast-Off Drum Competition. Metal drummers can upload a three-minute (or less) video of their best solo performance. Entries will then be judged by rockers like former Malevolent Creation’s Dave Culross. Two winners will be selected and they won’t only get a mention in the January issue of the magazine, but they’ll also take home a set of bass-drum pedals. A pair of second-place winners will pocket a gift pack from Hudson Music. Head to for more details.
