Resistance Added To The WOM VII Festival

West coast heavy metallers Resistance have been added to the roster of the Warriors of Metal VII Fest. Only the third California-based act in the fest’s history, the Lion Music Recording artists will be supporting the release of their fourth studio album, tentatively titled “Knights of Doom.”
Co-founder/bassist Paul Shigo states:

“We are honored to be invited to perform at the 7th annual Warriors of Metal Festival. We’ve kept an eye on this festival and watched it continually grow since it’s inception. We respect the credibility and reputation of this Festival, the organizer Datis Alaee, and the caliber of the Heavy Metal music and bands that have performed here throughout the years. WOM Fest’s dedication to the fans and music reminds me of an up and coming Keep it True or Headbangers Open Air Festival, but in the U.S.”

The band posted its recent single “VLAD” awhile back, which may be streamed below.
