Turns out the tickets are sold out, wow! What usually takes months actually took 2h30 hours!!! (And the weekend passes took 3 minutes to sell). Congrats to all! We will be dropping a few tickets at the Freeson in Montreal today around 5pm for the local bangers. For the rest - please remember that near the festival date, there are always people selling their tickets as they can't go. Cheers and good luck! - Don't accept tickets that are sold at higher prices!

Fucking die-hard!

If I had the extra vacation time and funds, I'd be there in a heartbeat. Doesn't feel so bad having seen both main headliners but fuck The Katakombs is always a party and I miss all those Montreal crazy fuckers I see at every show there.

At least I'll see Ares Kingdom in Edmonton!

Yeah, it was actually really great playing the 2015 Wings of Metal pre-show with METALIAN and OCCULT BURIAL. We played first, so we were the first band to play out of the entire three nights of concerts.

We are getting some more festival gigs this year, including one in Quebec that of course isn't WoM... yet to be announced!... and also in Ottawa and Toronto.

Although all the tickets are sold out for Wings of Metal, we still have a few band announcements to make! One of them is for… the hugely influential NWOBHM legends DIAMOND HEAD! Every year at Wings we had a NWOBHM play, we are extremely happy to have DH as part of the line-up for this final edition! On top of it, they have agreed to play an exclusive, crushing old-school set!!! We couldn’t be happier as Lightning to the Nations is, to our humble opinion, one of the best and most flawless metal records to have been released. Oh, they also influenced countless bands, including Metallica and Montreal’s own INEPSY!! Seeing them up close at Wings of Metal is sure to be be ELECTRIC!!

Pretty rad... I would have thought these guys could have been a headliner for a fest like Wings of Metal, but will be be playing prior to Voivod and whichever European doom metal band will be co-headlining the Saturday night. With a pretty big and hugely influential band like Diamond Head playing that slot, I'm salivating at who will be the be playing as a co-headliner with Voivod.

Has to be overall the best inarnation of WoM yet. :o Familiar with most of the bands, and the I haven't been familiar with, Spell and Communion, I am digging the fuck out of.

So what are the bands people who are attending most looking forward to so far? For me it's Varathron for sure. And Crypt Sermon. And Voivod. And Outre-Tombe. Lol.

I've got to familiarize myself with the bands I've never heard. So far I'm really looking forward to seeeing Outre-Tombe, Crypt Sermon, Sacrifice and to a lesser extent, Voivod. I'm a big Voivod fan but I've seen them a ton of times so I'm not overly excited to see them again. The more I think about it, I'm looking forward to seeing Diamond Head too.
The only other band I'm familiar with is Spell and I don't think all that much of them.
Will be a very cool vibe there I'm sure. Can't wait. :beer:

It may be only you, Svarog(Friday), and I actually going from here it seems.

Yeah I'm looking forward to Voivod only now because of my new appreciation for them. I've been listening to them a ton. Diamond Head will be rad I'm sure, a pretty classic band.

I feel the same way as you do about Voivod with Sacrifice, only because I've seen them so recently.

I love the Spell album from last year... the tune Vanitas is the highlight for me.. I'll be looking forward to them for sure.

I need to check out Starlight Ritual... I sampled a song and wasn't into it but it was only real quick so that's not fair.

Nope. I don't keep track of this stuff anymore, and it sounds like it sold out quickly.

I asked if there would be a band announcement this week for the final band. She said we'd have to wait a bit longer. I then asked if it was going to be Atlantean Kodex just a random guess joke, not expecting an answer, and she just said 'Better!'... I then asked "Older?".. so we shall see!

I tried, but she wouldn't spill the beans. :)

Only info I got is not Atlantean Kodex, and they are 'older', and that it's not Candlemass because their expenses are too high for a small fest like this, which is what I expected.

It better not be Witchfinder General playing their first show since the 80s and reunited with Zeeb Parkes back on vocals.

But that's my guess, if so then it's gonna be a mighty sting for not going.

Bummed it's the last. Probably would have made my way there one of these years.
