When selecting the Master of Ceremonies for the inaugural Decimate Metalfest, we wanted someone who was sharp, who was witty, who can get along with anyone, who can talk people's ears off, who is knowledgeable, who loves to be the center of attention, but most of all, we wanted the festival to be fully represented by people who care. There was one individual who stood out among the rest who encompassed all of the above and more!
We had the pleasure of sitting down with this person on a live broadcast for decimate Metalfest to speak about the festival and the bands who are traveling from near and far to be a part of us an showcase their amazing talent. Not only did he put us at ease of nerves in the booth, but was jsut about as dedicated to our festival as we were, which made the show a breeze and a lot of fun too!

Without further adieu, please join us in welcoming the first Decimate Metalfest MC, none-other than "Wicked Wally: of CJSW 90.9FM's Rock Bottom!
"Wicked Wally" emerged onto the scene last year with a brand new heavy metal and hard rock show on CJSW 90.9FM called Rock Bottom.
Since then Wally has made it his mission to let the world know how INCREDIBLE the Western Canadian metal scene truly is, with a strong focus on his home (Calgary, AB). Bringing on a co-host (Lucky Lauz) with her own metal pedigree, Rock Bottom will surely be unstoppable.
Wally is proud to be a part of the Decimate Metalfest which shares the same vision of supporting our local Metal scene. Together we can make this amazing community grow and "Decimate" more meatheads across the nation.
Get ready Calgary... And as Wally likes to say "Let's Do This!"

Every metal fan has that gateway band or album which opened their mind to heavier, harder, more aggressive music.
Each week, Wally and Lauz craft two hours of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, grouping music from both genres that play nice together. Just when you are grooving to a rock song, we TURN IT UP TO 11 bringing you the best in Melodic, Death, Groove, Progressive, Djent, Metalcore, Black, and Symphonic Metal just to name a few…
