Hamilton, ON’s PROFANER conquered the 2016 WACKEN METAL BATTLE CANADA competition this past June beating out over 100 bands from across the country to be the ‘One Band To Rule Them All’ and perform at the world’s largest metal fest Wacken Open Air 2016 in Wacken, Germany, which holds an attendance of over 80,000 metalheads. Ready to pillage the crowds at the international WACKEN METAL BATTLE representing Canada among 27 other countries,  the dust settled from all the mosh pits and PROFANER were presented 2nd place for this year’s 2016 world competition, continuing the prestige of metal talent produced out of Canada.

Witnessed by WMBC organizer JJ Tartaglia at Wacken Open Air, he had this to comment:

“Profaner played their best set I’ve seen yet. They’ve beyond proven themselves here at Wacken and have impressed a lot of people. I’ve never been prouder of the Metal Battle and the dreams that it realizes. Canadian metal is stronger than ever!”

PROFANER also commented on their win:

“Profaner takes second place!!!! We won 1000 beers!! Thank you to everyone involved back home and worldwide. We owe you our greatest thanks for all our success. This is beyond a dream come true. Thank you Wacken Open Air and Wacken Metal Battle Canada. Can’t wait to come back home and celebrate with Crimson Shadows and Vesperia.

PROFANER was defending Canada’s world title after Vesperia were crowned 2015 world champions. In the last three years of Canada’s participation, they have produced two world champions, Vesperia (2015) (video) and Crimson Shadows (2013) (video).
