LAMB OF GOD
Heavy Metal fans worldwide consider Lamb Of God one of the genre's best shredders thanks to albums such as the Grammy nominated 'Sacrament' which was Heavy Metal's top selling album for an incredible two years running. Awesomely hard-hitting live, Lamb Of God co-headlined MTV's Headbangers' Ball Tour and played Ozzfest.

Randy Blythe has announced that Paul Waggoner of Between The Buried And Me will stand in for Paul Morton until he's dealt with a family emergency.
Decapitated were formed in the town of Krosno, in south-eastern Poland in 1996 by Witold 'Vitek' Kieltyka, Waclaw 'Vogg' Kieltyka and Wojciech 'Sauron' Wasowicz. Decapitated is one of the most popular polish bands in their genre, who have played many tours around the world.
During this time, the band has released six studio albums and DVD.
Huntress has locked down another year of victories as a newcomer metal band. Forming only three years ago, the powerful pentad continues to deliver stellar live performances. 2013 was a landmark year for Huntress, having released their sophomore album 'Starbound Beast', touring non-stop in support of their critically-acclaimed album, while continuing their quest to bring true Heavy Metal to the masses.
Vocalist Jill Janus says: "This has been an incredible year for the band, 2013 began with Huntress writing and recording our 2nd album 'Starbound Beast', which was produced by Zeuss. We've been touring virtually non-stop — Sweden Rock Festival, Download Festival, The Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival, Heavy MTL, Danzig's 25th Anniversary Tour with Doyle, and ending a wild year as the opening act for Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage and Testament in North America. No rest for the wicked!
Our video for 'Zenith' (directed by Phil Mucci) was filmed during our hectic tour schedule. It surpassed our expectations and truly captured the vision of our album. It's part of our legacy, and part of our path to rise above the glorification of mediocrity. Huntress is here for the long haul; our determination, vision and love of music will continue to be our driving force. Hail Heavy Metal!
