Crimson claims semifinal without shadow of doubt

Crimson ShadowsWell, we now have one finalist decided for the Wacken Open Air competition for the road to Wacken Germany, Crimson Shadows.

Friday, May 31 at the Hard Luck Bar in Toronto marked the first semifinal battle, between two metal heavyweights – the other being of course, Adrenechrome – that outlasted the previous competition.

Now that this is decided, the winner of the semifinal battle on June 7 will leave only one contender left between Vesperia, Spewgore, Slyde, Panzerfaust and Warmachine to face Crimson Shadows. It’s going to be a tough battle, but no matter what will serve up a hyper dose of intense metal madness.Ryan HofingJimi MaltaisCrimson Shadows took their decisive victory with humility and modesty, and still do now going into the finals.

“We’re really excited,” said drummer Cory Hofing. “Leading up to the show, we knew the competition would be tough, but after hearing the crowd’s reaction to us, we felt really good about our chances and performance.”

Although they admit that Adrenechrome put up a solid effort and played a killer set, they readily accepted the win and now are only looking forward.

“we’re going to have to step up our game for the finals, but a bigger stage is where we really shine.”

There goes that modesty, but they’ve earned the right to gloat a little bit. Let’s see if their confidence can get them all the way to Germany. Only time will tell. Proud ParentsStory by Devin Size, Photos by Tee Onek.
