Italy is part of the Metal-Battle arena since 2004, when the contest was called differently. Actually the Italian metal scene is still an underground movement with limited possibilites for the emerging acts, and in such a scenario the aim to play at the Wacken Open Air, unquestionably the best rock-metal festival worldwide, is the most important chance a young and unsigned band can get in order to try to reach a good mediatic exposure in front of the whole international metal scene.

Here is a quick overview of all the national finalists since the beginning:

2004 - METHEDRAS
2005 - STIGMA
2006 - CADAVERIC CREMATORIUM
2007 - year-off
2008 - INALLSENSES
2009 - ADE
2010 - PENTHAGON
2011 - GOLEM
2012 - year-off
2013 - BACKJUMPER
