Wacken Metal Battle Canada updates – round 4

Wacken Metal Battle Canada 2014

Round four of Wacken Metal Battle Canada – the Toronto and Vancouver editions, at least – took place this past weekend.

From the Toronto competition, Santuarium and Shattered Remains emerge as winners and will move on to compete at one of two Toronto semi-finals: April 26 @ Hard Luck Bar or May 3 @ The Rivoli.

Neck of The Woods took the winning place in Vancouver but Unleash The Archers were chosen by competing bands to be the wildcard selection at the city’s semi-final. Both bands will perform alongside Omnisight, Witch of The Waste and Over The Coals on May 3 @ Rickshaw Theatre.

Congratulations to all four bands! As always, full details (including remaining competition dates and line-ups) are available at Wacken Metal Battle Canada.
