Wacken Metal Battle Canada is pleased to announce that band submissions are now open for its fifth edition after a one year hiatus in 2017! This year's edition will be hosted in several cities across Canada, from Vancouver all the way to Montreal. Over a hundred bands will compete, but only one will get to play the prestigious Wacken Open Air Festival in Wacken, Germany. Previous winners include Hamilton's Profaner (2016), Oshawa's Vesperia (2015), Montreal's Mutank (2014 winners) and Toronto's Crimson Shadows (2013).

Festival organizer JJ Tartaglia commented, "We're all very excited about the 2018 Metal Battle. After the pause from last year, we expect a good batch of quality submissions from across the country, both from existing bands that have been honing their craft, and from new bands that have emerged during the break. We've also made some tweaks to the round structure which will include a Western Final and Eastern Final leading up to the grand finale in Toronto. So it will be more of a hockey playoff style, which I think will work out better, with the Final being technically on neutral ground."

Submissions for the 2018 battles are now open and close on December 29th, 2017 at 11:59pm EST.
