Iceland has been a part of the Wacken Metal Battle family since 2009. This small island nation with a population of only 330.000 hasn't exactly been very well known for its metal scene throughout the years but in the last few years that has started to change as bands like Sólstafir, Skálmöld, The Vintage Caravan, Brain Police and most recently Kontinuum, have been making waves overseas. Hard rockers Dimma have also hit the Icelandic circuit hard the last 2-3 years, culminating in them performing live in the fall of 2015 with the SinfoniaNord Symphony Orchestra and 2 chamberchoirs, a total of 85 people on stage, in 3-4 sold out shows in Reykjavik and Akureyri.

 

Due to the size of the country, the Wacken Metal Battle Iceland national contest is only one night, one grand evening! No preliminaries. Since 2009 Iceland has seen six bands go to Wacken as a result of the contest and those are:

 

2009 = Beneath

2010 = Wistaria

2011 = Atrum

2012 = Gone Postal

2013 = Ophidian I

2014 = none, as Iceland took a break from the competition.

2015 = In The Company Of Men

2016 = Auðn

 

The winners are selected by a panel of judges composed of both domestic and foreign music and media professionals. Wacken Metal Battle Iceland is always growing, resulting in WMB 2013 and 2015 being held at Reykjavik's grandest live venue, Harpa, Reykjavik Concert hall and Conference Centre. Nothing but the best for Icelandic metal!
