Last month we told you about the Scion No Label Needed Contest & Series, which would allow one lucky unsigned band to win, well, just about anything and everything an unsigned band could ever possibly want. Seriously, this contest is amazing.

Well, the time for submissions has past, and the judges have now selected twenty finalists for the contest. You can listen to all of these unsigned bands, and cast your vote for who you think should win, here. Two of them, Iron Thrones and Iris Divine, are even bands we’ve written about before! But all of these groups are really talented, and would make worthy winners. This is an awesome way to discover some great unsigned bands, at least one of whom could very well represent the future of metal.

All the details after the jump.

  • Voting runs from now until March 8, 2010.
  • You can vote once per day per IP address.
  • The public’s vote accounts for 20% of the total vote.
  • The remainder of the vote belongs to renowned producer (Lamb of God, Clutch, Suicide Silence) Machine (who will produce an EP for the winning band), the members of Shadows Fall (who will mentor the winners), the editors of Metal Insider, Metal Injection, and MetalSucks, and a collection of managers, agents, writers and artists.

Go here to check out all the bands and cast your vote.
