Wacken contest + tickets

+++Let the battle begin!!!+++


 


Throughout the world, from the smallest rehearsal room to the largest stage, Washburn Guitars are recognized as some of the finest instruments on the planet. 


 


As part of the Wacken-Universum, W:0:A Metal-Battle has become a very strong name in the worldwide metal music scene. In order to further support the growing metal scene Washburn and W:0:A Metal-Battle have recently teamed up to offer metal music talents a whole new communication platform.


 


Beginning August 4th, 2008 at the upcoming 19th Annual Wacken Open Air Festival, Washburn and W:0:A Metal Battle will announced the first Metal Battle / Washburn Riff Contest.


The contest will allow participants 18 and older to upload a 35 second clip of their best riffs to YouTube to be presented on this site and voted on by fans from the metal community.


Record your riff at home, at a Washburn dealer, the contest area of a Washburn Exhibition booth or anywhere you like, all that matters is “Are you Metal enough to win?”.


Riffs must be recorded on a Washburn guitar and last no longer than 35 seconds. If your clip is voted in the top 13, you can win a great prize including a brand new Washburn HM series custom shop guitar.


 


The upload phase of the contest will close April 5th, 2009, with voting beginning April 6th. You may upload 2 different 35 second clips (see rules for details).


Further information is available at www.riffcontest.com


 


The world is ready to hear and see your heaviest riffs
