     WACKEN METAL BATTLE CANADA is proud to announce 2013 champions CRIMSON SHADOWS will be special guest headliners of this year’s 2016 national final in Toronto, ON at Opera House on June 11th.

“We are very pleased to have 2013 champions Crimson Shadows as our guest headliner for this year. I think it’s an obvious choice, they have been going strong since they’re crowning at Wacken and have been big supporters of the metal battle the entire time. It will be a proud moment to see their performance inspire and mentor this year’s finalists.” comments WMBC organizer JJ Tartaglia.

The national final in Toronto, ON will be host to Prairie Final winner Tales of The Tomb (Edmonton, AB) plus Ontario Final winners Profaner (Hamilton, ON) and Pyramid Theorem (Toronto, ON) with BC and Quebec finalists still to be announced. The winner of this year’s national competition will perform at Wacken Open Air in Wacken, Germany, which holds an attendance of over 80,000 metalheads from around the world for ‘One Band To Rule Them All’.
This is WMBC’s fourth year hosting the competition across country in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Regina, London, Hamilton, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. For the last three years that Wacken Metal Battle has been held in Canada, it has produced two world champions Vesperia (2015) and Crimson Shadows (2013) to triumph at the international Wacken Metal Battle beating out over 30 other representing countries from around the globe.
