Frantic Amber Wins Wacken Metal Battle 2012 Sweden
We can’t believe it, we won the swedish Wacken Metal Battle final! Next stop Wacken Open Air! We can’t tell you how nervous and excited we were for tha battle. Five good metal bands were playing at the finals at Göta Källare this thursday. The jury consisted of music industry professionals and was headed by President Ida Evileye (Crucified Barbara).
Ida Evileye :
“Extremely convincing, inspiring, energetic and with a awesome matter of course, this band completely ran over us in the jury! I myself have been a bit of a fan since a year back when I heard this band for the first time. Now a year later, I hear a very different band that is very much more tight and persuasive! The winner of this year’s Wacken Metal Battle [Sweden] is Frantic Amber.”
1st prize is a slot playing on the WET Stage at Wacken Open Air in Germany, August 2012. Frantic Amber also won a backdrop from the Band Shop. They will also play at the festival Metaltown’s official after party.
Wacken Metal Battles started as Wacken Open Air wanted to give new, unsigned bands chance to play for a large audience. Wacken Metal Battles have been going on around the world since 2004. This year 30 countries were involved , including most of Europe, but also China, India, Russia, Croatia and Brazil.
In August we will continue the contest against 30 other bands for a record deal with Nuclear Blast! http://www.metal-battle.com/
