W:O:A Metal Battle in Central America! Call 2011!
Central America, yes we exist! In Geographic terms we are an istmus and to this one belongs 7 Countries. For us is an honor to get this chance to reach the WOA Metal Battle. With the Wacken Open Air being, at least for us, somehow the centre of the Metal World, the Metal Battle 2011 could be our first chance to really participate within this world. Being part of the Metal Battle our bands will show you the high quality and professionalism that they have already reached.

As Craneo Metal and coordinator in the region, I just can say that I am more than proud, my name is Pablo Vargas and I developed metal underground scene in the area since 1989.
Among another few dudes, we start to think on late 80´s that metal could be a dream come true, and now, check out: "here we are". Personally, to coordinate the metal battle in my region is like to get a Dr. to my previous marketing studies. Another two, old but well knowed in metal matters, headbangers will help me on this trip to WOA, Renato Velazco and Douglas Esquivel, each one in charge of 3 countries and with a lot of background in our scene.
Those ones that have never been at WOA, could not realize how professional and smooth that metal can be, and how big levels can reach our "sub-culture".
Bands in the region was impact as we announce this year the battle for 2011, then we got in 2 months more than 50 bands all over the istmus.
The battle next year would be just what the underground scene needs, and we just can say again thanks, to the promoters and we will be at WOA 2011 showing the world the best of Central America.

Horns up!
