2014 IS RAVEN’S 40th ANNIVERSARY!

RAVEN IS HEADLINING HEAVY SOUND FESTIVAL!

2014 IS THE REUNION OF HEAVY SOUND FESTIVAL, JUNE 7th, IN POPERINGE, BELGIUM!

_______________________________

HEAVY SOUND FESTIVAL – HISTORY:

The Heavy Sound Festival was a Heavy Metal/Hard Rock Festival back in the ’80s. The first edition took place in Bruges (Belgium), in 1983. The 2nd & 3rd moved to Poperinge for ’84 and ’85.

Bands – 1st edition:
Ostrogoth, Killer, Golden Earring, Viva, Baron Rojo, Warning, Uriah heep, Gary Moore…

Bands 2nd edition:
Motorhead, Twisted Sister, Metallica, H-bomb, Faithful Breath, Mercyful Fate, Lita Ford

Bands 3rd edition:
Pretty Maids, Slayer, UFO, Lee Aaron, Tokyo Blade, Warlock, Crossfire…

The festival was all about giving new upcoming bands the chance to be heard and some of them made it pretty far!

In 1985 there were some complaints about vandalism, never knew if this was true or just a rumor. Anyhow, the organizers thought it was better to just leave it as it was and stopped organizing the event.

It’s official that the heavy sound is totally back, with a new organization and the crew of the previous editions!!

ASKA – Confirmed As Friday Night Headliners For Warriors Of Metal Fest VII

Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is very excited to welcome back the only band to headline the fest three years in a row. Dallas-based Traditional Metal professionals ASKA, who headlined in 2009, 2010 and 2011, has officially signed on as the Friday night headliner for our 7th annual Warriors Of Metal Fest. ASKA will be supporting their sixth studio album, Fire Eater which was released through Germany’s Pure Steel Records in September of last year.

The 7th annual Warriors of Metal Fest will be held June 27 – 28 at O’Shecky’s LIVE Bar & Grill in Columbus, Ohio.

Band founder, vocalist and guitarist, George Call states: “When we here at ASKA were approached by the brain trust about coming back to Warriors of Metal and headlining Friday’s portion of the fest I said, ‘Awesome! Who do we gotta kill?’ Not because we actually wanted to kill anyone but you get the sentiment right? After all, who wouldn’t want to get back to, perform for and hang out with those beloved portions of our extended metal family that the Warriors of Metal Fest has come to represent? See, WOM is not just a fest where we perform for fans but one in which we bleed, sweat, laugh and commune with our brothers and sisters of Metal. It really is one big family and the ‘blood’ that unites us is STEEL. And so it is with that sentiment that we look forward to this latest installment of the Warriors of Metal Festival, now indoors, come June – because just as much as you want to see ASKA, ASKA wants to see you. Dig? Hail and see you all at WOM Fest VII!”

The band’s official music video for the track “Dead Again” can be seen and heard below:

ASKA is brought back to Warriors of Metal Fest VII due to the generous fan sponsorships by Kit & Jen Ekman from Mobile, Alabama, brothers Edward and Mike Schmidt from Cleveland, Ohio, Dennis Schwan and Megan Stewart from Detroit, Michigan, and last but not least, Lance Souther & Laurie Rhodes from Dayton, Ohio. We are grateful for their contributions and constant support through the years.

Tickets are on sale and various levels of sponsorship opportunities are now available at the Fest’s website at www.warriorsofmetal.org.
