Iceland's Wacken Metal Battle - And The Winner Is...

April 6th, Harpa, the new Reykjavik Conference and Concert Hall was overrun by legions of black t-shirt wearing metalheads, witnessing the selection of progressive/technical death metallers OPHIDIAN I as Iceland's representative to the Wacken Open Air festival, this August. Also on the bill were AZOIC, BLOOD FEUD, ABACINATION, MOLDUN and IN THE COMPANY OF MEN. The evening was capped with performances by last year's victors, GONE POSTAL and national heroes SKALMOLD, although many continued the festivities, partaking in an after-party hosted by female fronted deathsters ANGIST and the amazing 70s style hard rock from THE VINTAGE CARAVAN (just teens, but boy do they have the chops!) played late into the night.
