We would like to thank all of the venerable judges of the Wacken Metal Battle, the other bands who competed with us (Tsargrad, Vesperia, Answer with Metal and Plethora), and everyone who came out to provide much needed support to the contestants of this violent tournament. We would also like to congratulate Dylan Gowan of Hallows Die AND Vesperia, double winner of Friday March 6th’s Wacken Metal Battle Qualifying Round in Toronto! The other members of the two bands have also been basking in the pleasant surprise of a shared victory between friends, despite Dylan’s subtle gloating.

With more double-duty shows the next day in Oshawa at the Atria (https://www.facebook.com/events/808503952519016/), March 14th at the APK in London (https://www.facebook.com/events/931068270251361/), and April 17th at Overtime Sports Bar in Kingston (https://www.facebook.com/events/815545935161678/), not to mention the upcoming Wacken Metal Battle Semifinals, we’re going to see if we can make Mr. Gowan’s arms fall off – to be sold to the highest bidder of course.

Best of luck to the other semifinalists! Our percussion-slamming-kill-machine now has a taste for blood!
