For the fifth year, the mother of all metal competitions, Wacken Metal Battle, will be arranged in Sweden. The format is being extended, with now also a semifinal in Östersund, right in the middle of Sweden, and also a center for metal in Norrland.

For 2014, the final will not be in Stockholm, but in Falun, the hometown of Sabaton. The winner of the final in Sweden will as a bonus also get to play at Sabaton Open Air, which is Sabatons own festival in Falun.

There will be four semifinals on February 8 in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Falun and Östersund, and the final in Falun on March 15.

The closing date for applications is December 31, 2013, and all information on rules, prizes etc is available at
