The festival organizers also issued the following statement:
“For far too long, metal has been disappearing from the US. Few bands are doing long tours in the US and even fewer are coming to the US from other countries. We are dedicated to revitalizing metal in the US again and bringing the greatest metal bands from around the globe for all headbangers in the states still going strong. The Gods have been invoked and the battle has begun.”
