Founded 2004, the W.O.A. Metal Battle started just as an idea to boost the future generations of Heavy Metal and Rock musicians. The contest has its origins in Wacken's aim to support the future of Metal music, making bands step into the professional business. Several Metal bands such as RECKLESS TIDE, GORILLA MONSOON, TORTURE SQUAD or CRYSYS became world-known after taking part in this competition.
One of the most important things for the W.O.A. Metal Battle team and jury is the long ranged promotion of the winner with a special focus on live-activity. International winners get full top-quality endorsements and national artists get endorsements under special conditions as well. This is an occasion to play live on the world´s biggest Metal festival, as well as to socialize with other bands and people from the business.
