    wtf!!…wers demonic ressurection??

  • @Scream Demon:
    Bands that are signed on to record labels (excluding indie labels) aren’t allowed to participate. DR and Kryptos, for example, fall under this category.

  • scream_demon

    okay…but dats a really fucked up rule!

  • Not really. Those bands have played at international festivals earlier, and are likely to get more of those opportunities. This is an opening for the rest, which is almost 90% of our scene.

  • scream_demon

    though it is true that DR n Kryptos have played international concerts but Wacken is a whole other level.

  • Demonstealer

    @Scream Demon – We’d never play a battle stage at Wacken or anywhere else. When we play Wacken (which will happen soon I hope) we’ll play one of the regular stages.

    Plus we are signed to a major metal label Candlelight Records so no battling anywhere šŸ˜›
