This year the show will once again be headlined by HELSTAR, who 23 years ago released its debut album "Burning Star", and now, many, many long times later, is once again gearing up for a new release, entitled "Sins of the Past", due to be released November 19t by AFM Records. The band recently inked a four-album deal with the popular European label and this release of 11 re-recorded, revamped classics, along with two brand new songs, will be followed by a brand new full-length studio CD in the summer of 2008. Also co-headlining this year is SOLITUDE AETURNUS. Doug Pinnick of KING'S X, fresh off of recording his new solo album, will be backed by the SONNIER BROTHERS BAND.
Merchandise will be available from all of the bands participating at the show.
Tickets are available through Ticketmaster and are $18 in advance and $20 at the door.
