Warriors Of Metal Fest V Posts Promo

Warriors of Metal, Inc. has revealed its 2012 Promo Video for Warriors Of Metal Fest V Open Air produced by the vocalist and guitarist of the Brazilian thrash metal band Machinage. Furthermore, the organization has issued the following statement regarding its charitable effort for this year's festivities:

"Since Warriors of Metal, Inc. is a registered non-profit organization in the state of Ohio and we are dedicated to education and proliferation of metal music as well as charitable service to our greater metal family and community, we would like to announce that for this year's charity project we will be collecting money at the festival to donate to our metal brother Brian Bond, who plays in the Thursday, June 28th Pre-Fest Showcase band KLNZR."

"Brian recently lost his home to a fire and although everybody in the family is fine, they did lose some pets in the process of trying to escape the blaze. Brian and his family are in temporary housing now and we will be making a collection during the Fest to help them out. Additionally, our friend Fabio Delibo of the Brazilian thrash metal band Machinage has stated: 'We from Machinage are very saddened to hear about Brian Bond's home having been destroyed in a fire, and since we can't help just by our hands, we are willing to try to collect as much money as we can in all the gigs."

"We are going to play in our month long US Tour this summer in order to help Brian and his family.' The 2012 Machinage US Tour starts at Worcester, Massachusetts, goes as far north as Burlington, Vermont, as far south as New Orleans, Louisiana, and as far west as Kansas City, Missouri. We at Warriors of Metal, Inc. applaud Machinage's pledge and shall do our best to help them raise even more money for the Bond family and this worthy cause during our fifth year anniversary show this summer."

Vindicator Recruits Lead Guitarist

Vic Stone of Vindicator has checked in with the following update about the band recruiting a new lead guitarist:

"Vindisciples, a quick update from the Vindicamp! We figured our uploading new pictures would raise questions as to who that bootleg Dave Mustaine in our new band photo is. His name is Mick Mayer and he comes to melt your face. Mick joins us at a crucial time. Most of you know we have been turning over every rock to find a lead player; only to find a few spiders, a worm, and three slugs. Fortunate for us, the last rock we turned had the missing piece to Vindicator's completion.

"Meet Mick, Vindicator's new lead player and buy him a beer when we play a show near you! We're very excited to have him aboard and we hope you are too. Keep a close eye on us as more news will be trickling out in the next few months about the new album and upcoming shows. If you're close enough, be sure to come see us at The Primal Fear/Havok show. If you're not close enough, be sure to see us when we strike the East Coast on our Coastal Catastrophe Tour. There's a good chance we'll have new merch available this week... Just in case you were wondering. Until next time, say 'hello' to Mick and come see us and buy some stuff. Sticks, stones, and broken bones."
