Download “Wacken Metal Battle Canada Compilation” Vol. 3 by Various Artists

Wacken Open Air Festival! Just saying the name excites me as a Metal fan but it also makes me a little bit upset as well because its something that while I have longed to be a part of it, I just have not yet been able to do it. So what is this particular post about? Well, the other day I received some press about a “Battle Of The Bands” going on for some Canadian Metal acts and to make sure that I don’t miss any important details I will share this press with you.

The Press Release:
Wacken Metal Battle Canada is proud to present this year’s digital sampler of competing bands from across the country. Featuring over 80 tracks, this compilation is sure to annihilate your ear drums with its brutality of Canadian Metal! Get your FREE DOWNLOAD at the following link here.

About: Wacken Metal Battle Canada is part of an international competition where band’s from across the country in Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Quebec City will battle each other for one to be selected and join over 30 other countries for an international battle of the bands at the world’s largest outdoor metal festival Wacken Open Air, which has been taking place in Wacken , Germany for the last 25 years. Toronto’s Crimson Shadows (2013 winners – video at Wacken) and Montreal’s Mutank (2014 winners – video at Wacken) have had that honour playing in front of thousands. This year’s festival will be taking place from July 30th to August 1st.

How it works: Each city will hold their qualifying rounds plus city finals from the months of January to May 2015 selecting the top band to move forward to the national finals in Toronto, ON in June (date to be determined) with one being selected to perform at the 26th edition of Wacken Open Air taking place from July 30th to August 1st. All bands will be judged during battle rounds by respected local music industry.

The finalists will be selected as follows.
1 finalist from BC (Vancouver & Victoria will face off)
1 finalist from Alberta (Calgary & Edmonton will face off)
2 finalists from Toronto, ON
1 finalist from Quebec (Montreal & Quebec City will face off)
1 finalist from Ottawa, ON

Now I will admit that I do not know a lot about almost all of these bands but the chance to put this much free Metal into the ears of my readers makes me feel that this is a non-issue. You can download the whole enchilada via the link right below and I strongly suggest giving the whole thing a listen because you never know which band is going to hit you the hardest. Perhaps that will let you be the first in your circle of Metal friends to know about a particular band who is looking to rise above their contemporaries. My plan is to sit and enjoy this whole offering the moment that some free time is here for me to do so but that should not stop you from running with the ball. Go get em and feel free to let me know which ones were your favorites in the comments section.
