Indy Metal Fest Sponsor Shakes Out, Fest To Go On

Just days before this high-voltage metal event takes off, one of the sponsors of the Indy Metal Fest backed out of the deal. Indie label Chavis Records (home to Sonic X and Quiet Riot), who has offered a hand in sponsoring the event since April, has failed to mandatory fees and has left presenting sponsor Blind Prophecy Records to pick up their bill. Now that Chavis has been knocked off the event, the stage at Birdie's Live will no longer be called the Chavis Records Stage, but will rather take on Blind Prophecy's name instead.

The event, powered by Blind Prophecy Records, is slated to cram two venues with over a dozen prime metal acts, including Obituary, Alabama Thunderpussy, Daath, and Blind Prophecy's very own Years of Fire and Pain Principle.

On Saturday, September 22, Indianapolis Metal Fest will blast off in the KOC Grand Ballroom (all ages) and across the street at Birdie's Live (21 and up). Official band time slots will be posted in the coming weeks at indianapolismetalfest.com. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 day-of-show.

Double stage metal show -- 9/22/07 - 12 p.m. - Indianapolis, IN

Here is the current band roster:

Obituary (all ages)
Full Blown Chaos
Alabama Thunderpussy
Temple of Brutality (ft Dave Ellefson (Megadeth), Stet Howland (W.A.S.P.)
Daath
Beneath the Sky
Destrophy
Emmure
Hemlock
Years of Fire
Pain Principle

And many more.
