27 January 2014




Wacken Metal Battle Canada is proud to announce that Krepitus has won the first battle during Wacken Metal Battle Calgary and will now go on to perform at the city final on May 3rd at Lord Nelson's Bar for their chance to compete at the Alberta final on May 23rd at Dicken's Pub and the national final in Toronto on June 7th at the Opera House.

Band submissions for other competing cities Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal are still open until Friday, Jan 31st where the hunt for 'One Band To Rule Them All' continues.

Last year's first ever Wacken Metal Battle Canada was witness to Toronto'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 returns and expands 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.

One Canadian band will rule them all and 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 where they will join the 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.

Canadian battle rounds will be judged by a panel of local music industry representatives during the months of March, April and May with the national final being held on June 7, 2014 in Toronto, ON with the following band representation:

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

Submissions and will be closed on January 31, 2014 with bands selected to be announced at a later date in February.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
