MB Ex-SFRJ Republics - Greetings from Croatia
Here we go with the next message - this time from Croatia.
As part of the EX-SFJR Republics, Croatia is introducing itself to the rest of the Metal-Battle family worldwide:
"Hello Wacken, hello metal world! We are the Croatian Wacken Metal Battle team! This is our first year of cooperation with Wacken Metal Battle, but we will show you very soon that there is quality metal music in Croatia and Slovenia. If you ever visit a metal concert in Croatia, this one important fact will blow your mind: The Croatian metal fans possess the loyalty and fanaticism which every band dreams of. Full Metal Service and the Croatian Metal and Rock Portal decided to introduce the Wacken Metal Battle to Croatia and Slovenia. Croatia is new paradise for all foreign metal bands and tours. In few last year every serious metal band tried to visit Croatia, from the biggest like Iron Maiden, Metallica etc, to all popular metal bands on tour.
We are new in Wacken metal Battle lit, but we are friendly and full of energy and enthusiasm. In Cooperation with our friend in Serbia we are promoting bands from ex Yu area and our intention is to show the world which hidden diamonds we have here.
Boogaloo club in Zagreb, where Wacken Metal Battle will occur is the best metal venue in Croatia for sure. Great concerts of bands like Megadeth, Saxon, Sepultura, Iced Earth, Disturbed, Arch Enemy, Doro, Therion, Helloween, Kreator, Paradise Lost and whole list of popular metal bands played there in front of 1500 crazy fans. Wacken Metal Battle will try to sell out venue in semi final (Croatian final) and final battle, because Ex Yu final will be in Croatia, Boogallo club this year. Club Pri Rdeči Ostrigi is one of the best clubs in Slovenia in town Škofja Loka. Also, Wacken Metal Battle in Slovenia will be for the first time, and Slovenian final (Ey Yu semifinal) will be proof how great metal scene is there. Croatian metal scene is growing and it is question of moment when some Croatian band will become international metal star. Croatia have nice clubs in Zagreb, Zadar, Split, Rijeka, Osijek and other few towns, and www.hr.metalfest.eu is the only one metal open air festival in Croatia during summer days.
