FansAnother round of Wacken Open Air was decided on Sunday, May 26, at The Rivoli in Toronto.

The winners of this show move on now to the semifinals that are taking place May 31 and June 7 to decide the finalists that will move on to championship.

This night shared a little more of the artistic and dramatic metal that Europe has always been known for, producing bands like Cradle of Filth.PanzerfaustGoliath - PanzerfaustThe resemblance and reference came from one of the winners of the night, Panzerfaust, of Mississauga, Ont. Pretty appropriate that they would move on in the competition to get to Wacken, Germany, considering they get their name from the German anti-tank artillery of WWII.

The secondary winner of the night was Slyde, a ruthless speed rock/metal band composed of members from both Toronto and Ottawa. They incorporate synths and harmonized guitar licks to give a progressive and melodic feel to environmental and political issues. Usually a twist on punk rock, but they give it a much more rugged feel. Sarah Westbrook - SlydeBoth bands put up an immense amount of competition and deserve to move on, but the competition waiting for them on the other side won’t let them by easily, and they will need to bring their talents to the next level to earn a final spot.Nathan Da Silva - SlydeStory by Devin Size, photos by Tee Onek.
