Toronto-based metallers WARMACHINE have been confirmed for the Nightmare Metal Fest, a brand new festival set to take place March 21-22 at Bourbon Street in New Port Richey, Florida. Also scheduled to appear are CAGE, DISASTERPEACE (the new band featuring singer Wade Black [CRIMSON GLORY, SEVEN WITCHES, LEASH LAW, BLACK REIGN, LEATHERWOLF], former KING DIAMOND guitarist master Pete Blakk, renowned drummer Jesse Martillo [CRIMSON GLORY] and bassist Chris Baylor) and SHADES OF TWILIGHT.
The event is the brainchild of Lance King — owner of Nightmare Records and former frontman of BALANCE OF POWER and PYRAMAZE.
According to Lance, "Friday will be a shorter night of 4-5 bands and Saturday will be an all-day metal extravaganza. A few local headliners and a lot of Nightmare's finest bands will be here to perform....This is just the beginning of things to come!"
