Banshee Replaces Benedictum At Warriors Of Metal Fest V

Warriors Of Metal Fest V has announced the cancellation of Benedictum and how Banshee will be replacing that band at the Open Air festival, which will take place on June 29th and 30th at the Frontier Ranch in Pataskala, Ohio. WOM Fest IV Open Air veteran Veronica Freeman of Benedictum contacted Warriors of Metal, Inc. last night with the following statement:

"Benedictum will not be able to attend the WOM Festival this year. We do so regret this and want everyone to know how much we love and support Datis and his efforts and every sponsor and fan that helps to make this festival happen. Our schedule will need to remain open at that time to facilitate work on the new album and work around some tight scheduling. We wish each and every band an amazing time and each and every fan throw your fists in the air in support of this event!! Love to everyone. V/Benedictum"

Warriors of Metal Fest also announced that former Metal Blade and Atlantic Records recording artists Banshee (currently with Snowblind Productions) will replace Benedictum on its line-up this year. Banshee has come back together after 21 years to record their fourth album called
"Mindslave," which is slated to be released within the next couple of months.

This will be Banshee's very first Open Air Metalfest appearance since the release of its new album and it is interesting to note that the three year WOM Fest veteran vocalist, George Call (ex-Omen) of Aska and Violent Storm will now be attending his fourth consecutive year at Warriors of Metal Fest Open Air for his fifth performance at the Fest with three different bands. Aska headlined the Friday night of WOM Fest II in 2009, George sang with Omen, headlining the Friday night of WOM Fest III, and he sand with Aska, co-headlining the Saturday night of WOM Fest III in 2010 with Cage, and of course Aska headlined the Saturday night of WOM Fest IV in 2011.

Banshee has an officially unreleased track called "Unearthed" on the Warriors of Metal Fest V Open Air 2012 Double CD Compilation that will be availabe to 2000 fans attending Keep It True XV Festival in Germany in less than 2 week's time and all the fans attending the Warriors Of Metal Fest V Open Air this year.
