It seems that none of the Egyptian pre-selected bands were able to participate in the battle due to visa and personal issues, but that won’t deprive us from seeing some Egyptian action on the stage that night, as the Folk /Blackened Death Metal band NATHYR will be the opening act of the night, alongside last year’s Metal Battle Winner from Egypt CRESCENT
The event will also feature the Groove/Folk Metal band THE DOWN TRODDENCE from India as special guests.
This year the Metal Battle celebrates its 11th anniversary in 2015, by bringing the action into the Middle East. Through this competition, a Middle Eastern band will rise above all others to represent the region at the 2015 edition of Wacken Open Air in Germany, world's number one Metal festival, competing against the other countries' winners to become the W.O.A. Metal Battle World Champion. The battle will take place on the Wet Stage & Headbanger Stage (inside the Bullhead City Circus) during the Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany, on the first weekend of August 2015.
