This year Metal-Rules.com ventured to Parc Jean Drapeau in Montreal, Quebec for Heavy MTL 2012. The two day festival occurring over August 11 and 12th, was set up on the beautiful island park in the St Lawrence River. There were three stages running almost non-stop: the Heavy MTL and Jagermeister stages side by side and the Apocalypse stage set a bit further back in the park. This year it wasn’t the headliners that drew us to the festival (besides Voivod’s headlining set on Sunday night on the Apocalypse stage during the same time as Slipknot), but it was the bands a bit lower on the bill that had us attending the festival. A big draw was the fact that Heavy MTL assimilated the Summer Slaughter Tour and Kataklysm’s “The Iron Will Tour” into the weekend.
After twenty of Montreal’s most epic independent metal bands showcased their head banging fury over five rounds in front of iconic guest judges such as Jeff Waters (Annihilator), Glen Drover (ex-Megadeth), Vinny Appice (Kill Devil Hill, DIO, Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell), Alex Skolnick (Testament, Alex Skolnick Trio) and Paul Mazurkiewicz (Cannibal Corpse). The top five bands have been selected to battle it out for the final round at Théâtre Corona on Friday, June 8th where the best two bands will go on to play Montreal’s heaviest and loudest stage for Heavy MTL taking place at Parc Jean-Drapeau from August 11 to 12.
Each of the TOP TWO BANDS will win a booking to play HEAVY MTL 2012, as well as weekend passes to the fest and other surprises, which will be determined by a select panel of guest judges.
The finalists of the En Route to Heavy MTL 2012 Battle of the Bands contest are the following:
