METAL BATTLE CANADA SHALL BE PAUSING FOR 2017.. BACK IN 2018!

September 27th, 2016
Wacken Metal Battle Canada

Wacken Metal Battle Canada 2016

As you know the Wacken Metal Battle is a worldwide event. Each year Wacken allocates 28 slots at W.O.A. for the Metal Battle winners whom represent 28 countries across the globe.

Due to the increasing number of new countries who join the Metal Battle each year, some countries are asked to pause for a year to give the chance to other countries to participate.

That time has come for Canada. After a very strong 4 years in a row, yielding two 1st place winners and one 2nd place, Canada will be pausing for 2017. But do not fret, we shall be back and better than ever in 2018!

In the meantime, get your ass to WACKEN anyway because it’s gonna be a great one!
