Congratulations to the Platinum Head band and its Assyrian guitarist Helbard Alkhassadeh. Platinum Head reached the 5th place with 604 votes after All has fallen, Blueprint, and Drive. The 3rd - 10th Prize have won a position on the compilation CD and 25 copies of the compilation CD.
Platinum Head, initially formed by lead singer Brett Zingler and the Assyrian guitarist Helbard Alkhassadeh in the late 1990s, was hatched after Brett and Helbard left the band Prozaic based out of Santa Cruz, CA and brought on bassist Dave Kempken. Platinum Head is a San Francisco based rock band influenced by the early 90's Washington grunge scene and classic rock. Fans usually refer to them as pH and consider themselves as “P” heads. With the new album "Product" and a new drummer, Jeff Okubo, Platinum Head has begun changing the sound of Bay Area music.
The next Bud Light Online Battle of the Bands will begin on November 15, 2005. For more information about the Bud Light Online Battle of the Bands visit www.santacruzlivebattle.com
