Beneath winner of Wacken Metal Battle in Iceland.

Beneath winner of Wacken Metal Battle in Iceland.

Published May 28, 2009

Waken Metal Battle was hosted in Iceland this year by Restingmind Concerts. The winner of the Icelandic preliminary competition was Reykjavík deathmetal act Beneath (www.myspace.com/beneathdeathmetal), which as a result will represent Iceland at the annual festival Wacken Open Air in Germany this summer. Heavy metal band Celestine came in second, and deathmetal warriors Severed Crotch were awarded third in the battle, which took place on April 18 in Hafnarfjörður.

Wacken Open Air is the biggest metal festival in the world right now, and will be held for the 20th time this summer. 70.000 people are expected to attend, so this is a big opportunity for Beneath to represent the Icelandic Metal scene in a big way to metalheads the world over. Go Beneath!
