The Warriors of Metal Fest has announced the confirmation of Maryland power metallers Burning Shadows, whose performance at 2012’s Pathfinder Metalfest V as a support band for the legendary Raven led to the Warriors Of Metal Fest organizer Datis Alaee to comment:
“I had known Burning Shadows for a while at that time since my friend Tim Regan had sent his band’s previous albums for air play on my Metal Messiah Radio show. But, making our annual pilgrimage from Ohio to Georgia to support our friend Hoyt Parris with the 5th edition of his Pathfinder Promotions’ Metalfest series, Burning Shadows was a definite not-to-be-missed band for me and boy did those guys deliver!!!
My neck was wrecked, my ass was kicked and my face was melted. Big kudos to Hoyt for such an awesome booking! After their performance I went over to my wife and said ‘We HAVE TO get these guys to our Fest!!!'”
Band guitarist Tim Regan states: “We are thrilled to join the lineup for Warriors of Metal Fest VII! It is a huge honor to be part of a festival that always brings together so many amazing acts. We are grateful to battle alongside so many like-minded bands, organizers and fans.
Datis has been a strong supporter of ours and we very much look forward to bringing our music to new audiences looking to help us prove that true metal is alive and well. Many of our favorite bands that we’ve shared the stage with have played this festival in years past and we’re excited about what’s in store for 2014.”
The band has posted the song “A Thousand Lies (Abridged),” from their “Last One To Fall” EP, which you may view below. Uploads of the tracks “Southwind” and “New Dawn Arise” from the EP are also streaming over on youtube.
