1540272_365359840268161_2118725076_oOne band will rule them all! After reviewing over 400 submissions, Wacken Metal Battle Canada is proud to announce its selection of 103 independent Canadian metal bands to participate in this year’s 2014 battle line up for Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver . The bands will compete during the months of March, April and May in 22 qualifying rounds, 6 semi-finals, and an Alberta final along with the national final being held on June 7th in Toronto, ON at Opera House. One independent Canadian metal band will be chosen to represent the nation with highest honour at this year’s 2014 international battle at the world’s most prestigious metal festival Wacken Open Air in Wacken, Germany.

The finals will have the following representation and will be judged along with all other rounds by a panel of music industry representatives.

1 finalist from Vancouver, BC
1 finalist from Alberta (Calgary & Edmonton will face off in Alberta final)
2 finalists from Toronto, ON
1 finalist from Montreal, QC

Last year’s battle was witnessed to Toronto, ON’s epic power/death metal band Crimson Shadows not only winning the 2013 Canadian final but conquering the international final and performing in front of thousands unknown to their behemoth sound. (Video of that champion set can be viewed here .) The band joined a list of Canadian heavyweights such as Voivod, Exciter, Razor, Annihilator, Anvil, Kataklysm, Cryptopsy, 3 Inches of Bloods, Despised Icon and Danko Jones who have performed at the festival in years past.

Submissions were open from December 5, 2013 to January 31, 2014.
