“Spread the Metal Records has lofty ambitions for this festival and as it grows each year, I want to prove that the label is as committed to philanthropy as we are to releasing phenomenal records.

ABOUT: Spread The Metal Fest was inspired by STM Records owner Matt Day, whom previously worked for HSF as a volunteer and decided it was time to give back to the community and help an organization and cause that promotes awareness of heart disease along with financial support.
ABOUT: Spread the Metal Records is an artist-oriented label. They recognize the commitment of all those who have signed with them and those who continue to support them in other ways. A label is only as strong as its artists, and indeed the job of the record label is to create an environment where they can pursue their artistic vision. That means giving straight answers, holding themselves accountable, taking responsibility for their mistakes, and recognizing their own limitations. STM believes in every release that they put out and they have more respect for the fans than to expose them to a sub-par album. STM demands the best from themselves, and so they can’t accept any less from the bands that they represent.
Stone Says: I’ve stated once before, the sincere admiration I have for Matt Day’s charitable kindness through his Spread The Metal Festival and Spread The Metal Records. I also admire each and every band that are giving their time to perform at this fabulous festival; along with the sponsors and anyone else that is involved in making this event happen. This Spread The Metal Fest proves that Metal can make a difference in people’s lives.
