SPUT ROYALE: Round 1 Group D

Hello welcome to this OFFICIAL TOURNAMENT of Sputnik's most popular artists, back for its sophomore year after a wild, wild debut 12 whole months ago! The committee (Aberf, dedex, JesperL, myself, JustJoe, minushuman24, Pangea and Pheromone) have sorted through your nominations, picked out the most (and least) popular entries, and randomly generated them into 4 groups of sixteen matchups that you can VOTE on according to who you like best. Please vote! Here is how to vote: submit a full ballot of ALL sixteen match-ups. Blanks are acceptable. E.g. 1. Agalloch 2. n/a 3. The Hotelier etc. The winners will go through to the next round, the losers will be forgotten forever (any tie-breakers will be announced separately). This will continue until there is one winner. Place your BETS!
