AGENT STEEL Guitarist Added To METAL BLADE RECORDS' 30th-Anniversary Show

AGENT STEEL guitarist Juan Garcia will join ARMORED SAINT on stage at Metal Blade Records's 30-anniversary show, set for Friday, November 30 at the House Of Blues in West Hollywood, California. Other musicians slated to perform "a variety of cover songs" with ARMORED SAINT include AMON AMARTH's Johan Hegg, Ray Alder of FATES WARNING/REDEMPTION and Doug Pinnick of KING'S X. The concert, which will be hosted by "That Metal Show"'s Eddie Trunk and Don Jamieson, will also include a short set by Arizona thrash metal veterans SACRED REICH in between GYPSYHAWK and ARMORED SAINT.

Commented Don: "So pumped to be hosting Metal Blade's 30th-anniversary show with quintessential metal warriors, ARMORED SAINT and a destined-to-be quintessential metal band, GYPSYHAWK. Gonna be heavier than Honey Boo Boo's mama!"

Added SACRED REICH vocalist/bassist Phil Rind: "We are excited to be involved in Metal Blade's 30th-anniversary celebration. Metal Blade were the first to offer us an opportunity on 'Metal Massacre 8', which led to a record deal and the release of 'Ignorance' and 'Surf Nicaragua'. Three of the best records ever — SLAYER's 'Hell Awaits', D.R.I.'s 'Dealing With It' and C.O.C.'s 'Animosity' — were all on Metal Blade. [Label honcho] Brian Slagel was and still is a huge fan and advocate for metal! We are looking forward to saying thank you to Brian and everyone at Metal Blade in the best way possible, loud and fast!"
