Posted in Gig Review, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 23, 2012 by Tickets There

Wacken Open Air 2012 may be six months away, but the excitement has begun. With tickets sold out and a line-up that boasts Amon Amarth, Saxon, Ministry, Machine Head, Scorpions, Testament, Cradle of Filth, Dark Funeral plus many, many more; W.O.A. 2012 promises to be the must see metal event of the summer!

In true metal spirit, Wacken have been running a battle of the bands since 2004 that takes place in over 30 countries with an all-out final at the festival itself. The top prize includes 1, a gig at Wacken (the final – duh), a yearlong recording contract with Nuclear Blast Records (Anthrax, Dimmu Borgir, Behemoth, EXODUS, Hammerfall, Sepultura, Nile, Testament, VADER – frickin’ endless list of legends) and assorted endorsements from the festivals sponsors. Not too shabby eh?

On Saturday night, Crunch Metal promotions presents the first of two semi-finals in the Irish heat which take place at Dublin’s The Pint, and will see six native acts launch bloody war upon each other for a chance to claim the coveted prize. Beltbuckle Overdrive (Dublin), Clurichaun (Tipperary), Exzeltic (Dublin), Red Six (Belfast), Spittin’ Bones (Kildare) and Warpath (Dublin) are all in with a chance of reaching the finals which will be held again at The Pint on April 21st but only three will qualify on the night!

Tickets are only €5 on the door and you can bet your nut this will be a night worth going to see. These guys have proven their way around the country to get through the early stages and quarter finals so you’re going to see some full on metal this weekend.
