ABOUT THE W:O:A METAL BATTLE
WANNA PLAY WACKEN OPEN AIR? WE ARE HERE TO MAKE YOUR DREAM COME TRUE!!!
W:O:A Metal Battle now on Caucasus, proudly presented by Rock Music National Association and “JAM! events”. It welcomes bands from Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan to take part in the battles to win the chance of playing at
WACKEN OPEN AIR!
The Metal Battle takes place for the 14th time in 2017. Since then it brings together the worldwide metal scenes at the Wacken Open Air. The contest supported several bands at their starting point of their career, e.g. Drone, Torture Squad, Battle Beast and Hammercult.
But not only for the bands the Metal Battle is a fantastic option to represent themselves. Although many countries joined the Metal Battle which the metal world didn’t pay much attention to before; even as these countries have a great metal scene as well. That’s the reason why the Metal Battle grew and more than 40 countries joined the competition. Countries like Canada, Mexico, South Africa, the Middle East, Bulgaria, China, Japan (just to name a few) entered this worldwide network to figure out one band that represents their local scene at the international final round at the Wacken Open Air.
Traditionally the final takes place at the WET Stage and the Headbanger’s Stage of the W:O:A. The bands do have the option to give hell to the audience of the biggest metal festival in the world and to show them what metal is about in their home country.
In the end the jury will select a “top 5” and the bands will be rewarded with material and cash prizes.
Also the Metal Battle final at the W:O:A will be a forum for all participating bands where they can get in touch with producers, manager, booking agents and labels. So the Metal Battle gives a chance to all participating bands to establish contacts which can be useful for their musical future.
One of the most important things for the W:O:A Metal Battle team and jury is the long ranged
promotion of the respective band with a special focus on live-activity.
