AVENGER OF BLOOD, HEXEN, VEKTOR To Perform At Las Vegas' 'A Day In May-Hem' Festival

AVENGER OF BLOOD, HEXEN and VEKTOR are among the confirmed bands for the A Day In May-Hem festival, set to take place Saturday, May 2 at Sinister in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will help kick off a series of events (both personal and private) in celebration of Salem Rose Music founder, and former Century Media Records President, Marco's Barbieri's 40th birthday (on May 5).

The show begins at 6:00 p.m. and will run until 2:00 a.m., with a dozen up-and-coming thrash and traditional metal bands for only $10.

The festival billing is as follows:


Marco Barbieri is no stranger to promoting shows or metal, in general. Born and raised in Las Vegas, Barbieri moved to California to study music business at University of the Pacific before doing publicity and A&R at Metal Blade Records from 1991 to 1995 and then overseeing all domestic affairs for Century Media Records for 12 years. After returning with his family to Las Vegas in 2007, Barbieri has kept involved by managing the band WARBRINGER, as well as promoting shows at local venues like Sinister, Cheyenne Saloon, High Maintenance, The Four Aces, JJ's and The Bunkhouse, in addition to doing publishing deals, consulting and producing.
