Vocalist and Guitarist Devin Doucette - “Wacken 2018 was an incredible experience for us. Not only did we get to play in front of a packed house of over 2,000 fans, but we got to meet so many amazing bands from around the world. We are truly honoured to have been given the opportunity to play one of the biggest metal festivals in the world.”

Toronto's CENTURIES OF DECAY won the 2018 Wacken Metal Battle Canada national final as the beast from the East versus the best from the West, Calgary's HAMMERDRONE. The bands were the top two from over 70 that participated from across the country and both unleashed their own brutal assault upon the national final crowd. CENTURIES OF DECAY were crowned champion by a panel of metal industry consisting of Gustavo Valderrama (Electric Flow, Navaja Music), Andrew Epstein (Zombitrol, Alan Cross’ A Journal of Musical Things), Charlie Felix (Sound & Noise, Live Talent), Oscar Rangel (Operus, Ex-Annihilator), Wojtek Sokolowski (Wacken Metal Battle Canada), Luc Lainé (CFLX 95.5FM).
