The concept of the open air heavy metal music and camping fest, so popular in Europe, seems to be a rarity in America. The organizers of the Shadow Woods Metal Fest hope to change that with the inaugural edition of the festival happening September 25th - 27th, 2015 in Fannettsburg, Pennsylvania in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains.
Shadow Woods Metal Fest features lead performances from Midnight, Falls of Rauros, Occultation, Menace Ruine, Velnias, Iron Man, Anagnorisis, The Flight of Sleipnir and Stone Breath along with twenty-seven additional acts throughout the event.
The fest showcases underground black, doom, death, and noise and experimental metal bands on two alternating stages all day Friday and Saturday. Camping and workshops on topics such as runes, guitar maintenance, yoga and more will be offered and are included in the ticket price. Artists and record labels will be vending alongside several onsite food stands. The festival is BYOB and age restricted to 21+.
To keep the fest intimate, only 350 tickets will be sold, and the fest is already 1/3 sold out. Tickets are $92 (plus a 99 cent processing fee). A limited number of group cabins will also be available. The lineup is as follows: More...

Montreal's Menace Ruine has completed work on forthcoming album "Venus Armata." Profound Lore Records comments:
"Written and recorded from Spring 2013 to Spring 2014, this sixth album by Menace Ruine is the natural follow-up to 'Alight in Ashes.'
"With 'Venus Armata' the duo’s exploration continues with their most vocally intriguing and focused album to date. 'Venus Armata' is also the band’s most musically refined album likewise despite the same minimal set up, and raw primal sounds which seamlessly thread the sonic palette through the likes of experimental music, martial ambient/electronic, noise/industrial, darkwave, and neo-folk respectively.
"A novelty this time, the addition of Geneviève’s sistra, nutshell instrument (kamutef), and wrist bells which add life and subtleties to the rhythms has allowed her to charge the songs with even more energy and intention."
The album is due out October 14th, 2014 and the track listing is as follows:
1. Soften Our Evil Hearts
2. Red Sulphur
3. Marriage In Death
4. Soothing But Cruel
5. Belly Of The Closed House
6. Torture Of Fire
7. Venus Armata More...
