Canadian metallers Vesperia have taken first place in the international finals of the Wacken Metal Battle competition.
The news came during the world’s largest metal fest, which has an attendance of over 80,000 headbangers.
As winners, the Toronto based group will receive a 5,000 euro monetary prize, along with a heap of world class stage gear thanks to The Wacken Foundation.
Speaking of the achievement, frontman Morgan Rider said “We are extremely excited to accept the title of the 2015 international Wacken battle champions. There have been many ups and downs on this trip so far, but we have encountered so many amazing people, bands, press and organizers. Thank you so much for making this happen for us!”.
