"We are very excited to announced that the Oklahoma City Power/Speed Metal band FORTE' have officially confirmed their participation in next year's Warriors Of Metal Fest V Open Air. FORTE' released 4 great albums from 1992 to 1999 while signed to Germany's Massacre Records and self released their Limited Edition 'Vae Solis' EP in Sept. 2011! They'll release their 5th full length album in early 2012. The incredible Rev Jones who plays Bass for STEELHEART and MSG also plays Bass in FORTE' and he's something to behold LIVE! We thank FORTE' for giving us the privilage to showcase them at our 5th year anniversary Metalfest in 2012!
"We are also very happy to report that our American Metal Goddess, Veronica Freeman and our friends in BENEDICTUM have confirmed their return to the Warriors Of Metal Fest stage for a repeat performance in 2012, after being the very first female fronted Metal band that graced our stage in 2011. The return of Benedictum to WOM Fest V Open Air was made possible in large part due to the generous fan sponsorships of Kent & Kathy Wittwer and DJ Valkyrie Lawson (of Hard Rock Radio Live) who are all WOM Fest fans and saw Benedictum in action this year at WOM Fest IV Open Air and made this great band only the 3rd one to make a return to our stage besides Cleveland's Vindicator & Brazil's Machinage. We welcome Benedictum back to our Metal family in 2012!
"Queens, New York's Epic Metal band THE LAST ALLIANCE was the first band to confirm their participation in our special 5th year Anniversary celebration of True Metal in 2012. The Last Alliance self-produced their debut album 'Out Of The Ashes' and are now in the process of recording their sophomore full length saga. It can easily be said that The Last Alliance writes songs that one would expect to hear on an Iced Earth or a Blind Guardian album so we are very excited to showcase this highly talented group of musicians at our festival this year. Enjoy their Epic fan made video of their song "The Grey One" and get excited to see them Live!"
