4th Wacken Metal Battle Band lineup

Yea, Wacken is here, months of planning, finally you can see your favorite bands wrestle in stage with their axes and their vocals. 7 Wacken metal battles and one final battle so the FOURTH ROUND of the battle is going to take place in Aandklas Stellenbosch (Stellenbosch, South Africa) on April 30th. The bands are confirmed and the bands have been putting in much work lately and spending more time practicing and defining their sound.

Beeldenstorm are from Northern Suburbs and they play Lekkir Metal.

Fuera are from Cape Town, South Africa and they play Progressive Death Metal.

Junkyard Lipstick are from Cape Town, South Africa and they play Thrash Metal.

We’re really excited to be part of this years battle. It’s going to be a great party! South Africa really has some amazing bands, and to be included to take part in this event really is an honour. We have to make the best of our band practices at the moment. Jo lives out of town and we only get to practice with her once every few weeks. However, we’re still managing to write some new material for our album which will be released at the end of this year. We’ll be playing a new song at the Battle which we think will go down well.

We wish all the participants the best of luck. \m/

Subject to Slaughter are from Cape Town, South Africa and they play Melodic djentcore.

Well we have been working hard since the day the announcement was made. Would be a great opportunity to be able to go all the way to germany. It is certainly a dream everyone in the metal scene shares.


Thread of Omen are from Cape Town, South Africa and they play extreme puppy blackened brutal apocalyptic slamming speed technical thrash ambient lounge death Metal.

We just got a new drummer (Damian Rijkers from Sabretooth) and he’s learnt the songs really well so far. We’re trying to get our sound as tight as possible again since we’ve kinda been on a mini-hiatus since the Aborted tour. We’re so amped to get back in the game and start playing again and release our second album. We’re practicing really hard and once we’ve got our main tracks down we’re gonna start working on introducing the new songs as the singles release and eventually an album launch. No matter what happens, we’re just stoked to get on stage with some friends of ours and play a heavy show.

So this above bands will perform on the 30th of April 2016, from 7pm till batman arrives. All funds generated by door sales will be given to the winning band to cover tour expenses so play your part, R40 is all it takes to witness the best and send the best of the best to Germany, to know more about this battle, click here.

Name is Austin, peeps call me Austinrock. I like to interact with bands. You DO NOT have my permission to utilize any of my profile information nor any of the content contained here \m/{*¿*}\m/ ...THERE...OK. I'm a huge Melodeath metal fan. I'm proud to be a METALHEAD. Metal isn't for everybody, it's for the chosen few. Most friends I have tell me they don't understand why I like metal, that it is too much noise. They just going to have to listen beyond the noise and the truth is they don't have to figure it out, it is either in you or it isn't. Metal is my morning coffee and it's my night sleeping pills...
