Hundreds of bands have tried, but there can only be one. At least per country/per region because the majority of the participants of this years edition of the W:O:A Metal Battle have made their choice.
Today W:O:A can announce the first five (of a total of thirty) winners that will be performing at the finals at Wacken Open Air 2019:
Goat Ripper from Azerbaijan (Region Caucasus)
Athica from Panama (Region Central America)
