The Warriors of Metal fest is welcoming back to Ohio for their performance during this year's Warriors Of Metal Fest VII at O'Sheckys LIVE in Columbus, Ohio, the Meriden, Connecticut thrash metal band Shallow Ground.

As Metal CD Ratings' staff reviewer, Kit Ekman put it in his live review of last year's event: "The Shallow Ground guys stuck around the festival all weekend long and were friendly and cool as hell. They supported other bands by buying their merch, shared their fruit salad with my wife, and could be seen up near the front of the stage rocking out to many other acts over the weekend. Good on ya, Shallow Ground." And Fest organizer, Datis Alaee adds, "It is indeed a joy to host such a band that genuinely supports their scene and their fellow underground Metal acts alike!"
Band co-founder, guitarist and vocalist, Keith Letourneau states: "We are honored to come back out to Ohio , and Warriors of Metal again this year.
