SAVATAGE mastermind Jon "The Mountain King" Oliva will join FATES WARNING's Ray Alder as a special guest at ProgPower USA IV on Friday, September 5 and Saturday, September 6 at Earthlink Live in Atlanta.
"I think bringing Jon and Ray to the fest simply adds to the mystique of the show," said promoter Glenn Harveston. "It will give the fans a chance to interact with legends of the genre. Hell, I'm excited for the chance to drink a beer with them myself."
The sold-out event will feature headliners NIGHTWISH and RAGE along with SYMPHONY X, EVERGREY, CIRCLE II CIRCLE, VANDEN PLAS, SECRET SPHERE, MERCENARY, PAGAN'S MIND, and REDEMPTION.
The festival, North America's premiere festival for progressive and power metal music, officially sold out in May — more than three months in advance.
ProgPower USA, an international affiliate of the Netherlands' ProgPower Europe, is sponsored by Pacific Drums, Sabian Cymbals, Evans Drumheads, Shure Microphones, Ultimate Support Systems, Sensory Records, and Metal Ages Media.
