Brutal Battle Cuba is proud to announce Montreal’s Dealer as the 2016 winner for this year’s competition to perform on the Brutal Fest tour across Cuba from August 18th – 28th.
The national final took place on April 23rd in Montreal between city round winners …From The Deep (Ottawa), Exes For Eyes (Oshawa), 3 Days Dead (Oshawa) plus Dealer (Montreal) and was judged by Bart Frydrychowicz (Quo Vadis), Aaron Homma (Annihilator, Killitorous) and Alex Dupras (Plasma Rifle, Unhuman, Teramobile).
BBC organizer Richard O’Neil comments: “What a first year we had! I cannot believe it is already over! Dealer, from Montreal, won this edition and will be representing Canada at the Brutal Summer Fest 2016 in Cuba! I can definitely say that all the bands were amazing, but Dealer came to this contest to win and there is no doubt about it.
“Huge presence on stage, trashy and aggressive ‘in your face crossover between trash and hardcore. The Cubans are going to have a blast seeing these guys live! We are wrapping up this first year and already, we are working on the next one! Stay tuned, some announcements will come pretty soon!”
