OVERKILL, GOD FORBID, DESTRUCTION Confirmed For SEATTLE METAL FESTIVAL

Returning after a three-year hiatus, the 2007 edition of the Seattle Metal Festival will be held on January 20, 2007, at The Showbox in Seattle, Washington.

This year's lineup — a mixture of metal veterans from the U.S. and abroad, as well as up and coming national acts — will be as follows:

OVERKILL
GOD FORBID
DESTRUCTION
INTO ETERNITY
GOATWHORE
THE HUMAN ABSTRACT
MNEMIC
ARSIS

The festival is promoted by Frank Hetzel of Howitzer Productions and the main sponsor is Dragon Monkey Media. Hetzel is the creator of the Seattle Metal Festival and the Northwest Deathfest, as well as the promoter of many metal shows in the Seattle area.

"I put the Seattle Metal Fest on the back burner for a while because I felt that it should become a stronger festival — a show with great national metal acts that people would travel from all over the Pacific Northwest to see," said Hetzel. "It took some time to work out the logistics for a festival of this size and with the help of Dragon Monkey Media; the show is coming together smoothly."

Dragon Monkey Media LLC is a Northwest-based media company promoting local musicians and artists by providing an internet resource to allow them to showcase their artistic works through its associated record label, Hot Monkey Records, and its affiliated production company, Dark Angel Productions.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, November 11 through Tickets West and The Showbox box office, as well as www.seattlemetalfest.com, Silver Platters in Seattle, and Scrape Records in Vancouver, B.C. The Showbox is located at 1426 1st Ave. in Seattle, WA. Tickets will be $25.00 advance and $30.00 day of show. This is an all-ages event with alcohol available for purchase to those at least 21 years old with ID.
