And the winner is… One band has won to rule them all!

WACKEN METAL BATTLE CANADA is proud to announce MUTANK (Montreal) WMBC 2014 champion. After hundreds of submissions and over 100 bands selected to compete in battles across the country, five bands remained representing their cities on Saturday, June 7 at Opera House (735 Queen St E.) for the WMBC National Final. Neck of The Woods from Vancouver, Exit Strategy from Calgary, Mutank from Montreal plus My Hollow and Burning The Day from Toronto all took the stage to a packed crowd at Opera House where they were judged by a panel of music industry that included Robb Reiner (Anvil), Noel Peters (Inertia Entertainment), Lindsay Schoolcraft (Cradle Of Filth), Jon Asher (Asher Media Relations), Adam Sewell (Riot, Rock Management / Stereo Dynamite), Darrell Shelley (Scene Magazine), Tim Henderson (BW&BK), Drew Copland (Villainizer).

“Saturday night was an incredible display of talent from across the country. Each band proved that they deserved to be on that stage. With great pride we will send off thrash metal powerhouse and new champions Mutank to Wacken.” comments WMBC organizer JJ Tartaglia.

MUTANK will now move on to perform at the international Wacken Metal Battle in Germany, which saw last year’s Canadian winners Crimson Shadows become the 2013 WMB international champions. MUTANK‘s performance date is set for July 30th at 2pm on the WET Stage, a day before the 25th annual Wacken Open Air officially kicks off during July 31 – Aug 2.

About: Over 100 independent Canadian metal bands were selected to participate in this year’s Wacken Metal Battle Canada line up in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver. The bands competed during the months of March, April and May in 22 qualifying rounds, 6 semi-finals, and an Alberta final along with the national final to be held on June 7th in Toronto, ON at Opera House.

One band will be chosen to represent the nation with highest honour at this year’s 2014 international battle at the world’s most prestigious metal festival Wacken Open Air in Wacken, Germany.

The finals will have the following representation and will be judged along with all other rounds by a panel of music industry representatives.

1 finalist from Vancouver, BC
1 finalist from Alberta (Calgary & Edmonton will face off in Alberta final)
2 finalists from Toronto, ON
1 finalist from Montreal, QC

Last year’s battle was witnessed to Toronto, ON’s epic power/death metal band Crimson Shadows not only winning the 2013 Canadian final but conquering the international final and performing in front of thousands unknown to their behemoth sound. (Video of that champion set can be viewed here.) The band joined a list of Canadian heavyweights such as Voivod, Exciter, Razor, Annihilator, Anvil, Kataklysm, Cryptopsy, 3 Inches of Bloods, Despised Icon and Danko Jones who have performed at the festival in years past.

Submissions were open from December 5, 2013 to January 31, 2014.
