"We were extremely pleased to have been invited to make a second appearance at the Warriors of Metal Fest. It has been four years since we made the trip to Ohio. We have had some changes in the band but we're looking forward to bringing our brand of east coast power metal back to the midwest.
We have a few things in the works for this year and plan on a performance that will be high energy, in your face and not soon to be forgotten. Warriors Of Metal is a great fest at which you get to see so many talented bands that you may not get a chance to see otherwise and the organizers are very easy to work with.
It's also a great opportunity to make new fans, friends and contacts. We are all excited to be a part of the show this year, June can't come around fast enough for us and we all just want to say thanks for having us!"

"When I was approached by the guys about the possibility of an opening in Beyond Fallen for me, I jumped at the chance, and immediately said 'I would be HONORED', and without hesitation I said yes... Beyond Fallen to me is the pinnacle of what metal is, and should be, honest, real, powerful music... no BS, no autotune, no sellout... Just real metal, made by real people...
"About Me... I guess you can say I am an experienced guitarist, I have played in way too many cover bands in NEPA, and have had the occasion to play alongside Joe in his band Anger Reign for a stint... I am most known as the former guitarist for, Graphic Violence, a PA thrash metal powerhouse, that was produced by Overkill, and Anthrax producer, Carl Canedy... I am also one half of the black metal recording act, Existentialism... More...
Singer Al Firicano, of the thrash metal band, Ravage, has issued the following update regarding some tour date cancellations:
"Ravage has unfortunately been forced to cancel appearances at The KC Power Fest and the August 18th show at Volume 11 in Raleigh, NC (this show will still be taking place, but without Ravage). Due to issues with the Ravage mobile, we've been forced to wait for repairs to take place in Missouri, so we will be delayed significantly and will have to pick up the tour in Allentown PA on August 20th - that will be the next show. We'd like to sincerely apologize to the fans and promoters for this and we hope to add a Kansas City show and a Raleigh NC show back to the tour before it is all over. Details will be announced when available." More...

Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania-based metallers BEYOND FALLEN are looking for a new drummer. "This person will hit the ground running and be required to learn the songs quickly to be ready to play live, and begin to write the next album," the group writes on its MySpace page.
BEYOND FALLEN has been together four years and "this will only be our second lineup change (drummer)," says the group. "We just recently traveled to Germany to play shows, with more overseas travel very likely in the future. We also travel out of Northeast PA to play shows with national acts in the U.S., and plan on doing more of this.
"The band has some very good things happening, and this is a great opportunity for someone looking to do what we do. We need a person who is professional, talented, creative, dedicated, dependable and easy-going... and loves playing real metal more than anything else. If money is your only motivation, then this is not the band for you — but if you really enjoy metal, writing your own songs and travelling overseas to play then you could be in our band. If you are a pro, then most of this stuff is common sense."
