Over 50 bands entered the 2010 Global Battle of the Bands in Hong Kong and competition has been fierce - rumours of bass guitars at 20 paces and drummers clashing symbols are just part of Hong Kong's competitive nature - but friendly. New bands and talented musicians have emerged while old favourites have upped their acts as the quality of performance and original songs gets white hot in the heats of GBOB.

Encroached upon by a fist comes long,
Upwards to the face of God, Boss, and Man,
Past the bodies…
