Killswitch Engage will be headlining the upcoming California Metalfest. It's a special gig for the Grammy-nominated, Massachusetts metal band celebrating its 10th anniversary of 2002's "Alive or Just Breathing." To commemorate the album, KSE will play the album in its entirety, from start to finish, as well as other more recent tracks.

The sixth annual California Metalfest will be held at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA on Saturday, November 24th. Ash Avildsen, founder of California Metalfest had this to say: "Alive or Just Breathing is one of the most important and timeless albums for this era of heavy music. KsE's special headlining set combined with the rest of the line-up is going to make for an incredible day of metal and memories. Having all these bands in the same place on one day is really exciting both as a fan and as a festival producer."

WWE Superstar "Mankind" Mick Foley will be hosting the festival along with several other stars TBA who will be doing signings and appearances.

Winds Of Plague Posts New Music Video

Winds of Plague has teamed up with Bloody-Disgusting.com for the premiere of the new music video for "Refined In The Fire." Directed by Jeremy Schott of MentalSuplex, the video keeps in the Halloween vein with blood covered band members and zombies.

"Being a big fan of both horror films and Halloween we wanted to do a video to tie into both," Says vocalist Johnny Plague. "We created a video set in a post apocalyptic era... Not too long into the video you realize the cause of the end of society as we know it, ZOMBIES! I play the role of zombie slaying bad mother fucker roaming the dessert looking for salvation. Instead i find a shack infested with all sorts of evil. To capture this horror based music video i recruited my people at Knotts Scary farm. Designer Brooke Walters as well as a legion of monsters. Happy Halloween followers of Plague, stay bloody!"

"Refined In The Fire" is taken from the band's latest album "Against The World," which was released earlier this year. Fans can also catch Winds of Plague this November for their headlining "Thrash and Burn" Tour. A full list of dates can be seen below. More...
