Submissions Now Open! Wacken Metal Battle Canada Returns! ‘One Band To Rule Them All’
Last year’s first ever Wacken Metal Battle Canada 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 in Wacken, Germany where they performed in front of thousands unknown to their behemoth sound of metal. (Video of that champion set can be viewed here.)
With that great success and triumph for Canadian metal, Wacken Metal Battle Canada will be expanding across the country in 2014.
“We’re very pleased to announce that Metal Battle has been expanded to include Western Canada. Battles will happen in Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver and we expect some quality submissions from those major cities to join Toronto and Montreal. Given the interest we received last year from the West, this expansion was inevitable. We’ve been working hard to overcome the geographical challenges – the result will be a bigger and better competition.” comments Wacken Metal Battle Canada organizer JJ Tartaglia.
