"This will be the band's first tour outside their home country and what better way to give the US audience their first taste of the band's recently released album 'Submission For Liberty' then to be a part of a festival in the place where 'thrash metal' began!!

"During the 1980s and early 1990s, the Bay Area was home to one of the largest and most influential thrash metal scenes in the world, containing acts like Metallica, Exodus, Death Angel, Vio-lence, Forbidden, Testament and Machine Head.
