The W:O:A (Wacken Open Air) Metal Battle is back in Middle East and will take place in Lebanon in 2018. The bands who are interested in particpation had to apply until end of 2017. During January 2018, an international preselection jury team reviewed the applications and the music.
Here are the judges of the preselection jury:
Since 2007 Oliver is in the Metal Battle family with Austria
and since 2013 also with Hungary. He is working in Budapest
as a financial advisor and he
is in cooperation with online magazines and clubs in both countries.
Four bands are qualified to take part in the Metal Battle in Lebanon and accepted the invitation.
Thus on April 27th the bands „Divulgent“, „Eden“, „Phenomy“ and „Slave to Sirens“ will fight for the ticket to the world-wide final at the Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany beginning of August. The event will take place at Yukunkun in Beirut.
We are very happy about this cooperation and are looking forward to a great battle \m/
