Organisers of a popular Bury St Edmunds music competition have hailed the “staggering” quality of the bands who have performed over five heats.
The line-up for the grand final of BurySOUND, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, is now confirmed following the final heat at The Hunter Club in Bury St Edmunds on Friday, February 23.
Cambridge-based progressive metal twosome Influx of Insanity were crowned winners on the night and will join Organ of Conti, Kyanos, Indecision and Kelodown.
Last year’s winners of BurySOUND Tundra will also perform at the final at the Apex on Friday, March 9.
Seymour Quigley, events manager at BurySOUND, said: “When Jackie Smith and Paul Johnson started the competition back in 1998, there were only a handful of local bands playing their own material.

“Fast forward 20 years and we had almost 50 artists vying for the 25 available slots, which in itself is a testament to how the scene has grown.
“Numbers aside, the sheer quality of music at this year’s BurySOUND has been absolutely staggering, and underlined what an amazing grassroots, DIY scene East Anglia currently has.”
Doors for the final open at 6pm, all ages are welcome (under-14s must be accompanied by a parent or carer), and tickets are £5 from 01284 758000 or online at www.theapex.co.uk
