During the next several months, over 100 indie metal bands throughout Canada will participate in this year’s Wacken Metal Battle Canada line up in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver. The bands will compete during the months of March, April and May in 22 qualifying rounds, 6 semi-finals, and an Alberta final along with the national final being held on June 7th in Toronto, ON at Opera House.
From this battle, only one band will emerge as the Canadian representative to appear and perform at Wacken Open Air, in Wacken, Germany, the world’s most prestigious metal festival.
To commemorate this, an 81-track free download entitled Wacken Metal Battle Canada Compilation Vol. 2 has been made available and can be streamed/downloaded below!
