NORTHWEST DEATH FEST 2006 - Complete Lineup Announced
Headliners of the third annual Northwest Death Fest 2006 â€” OBITUARY and
SADUS â€” will be joined by 27 death metal bands on Sunday, May 28, at Fenix
Underground in Seattle. California acts DEEDS OF FLESH and SEVERED SAVIOR
will co-headline the second stage. The support bands, hailing from Seattle
as well as the Pacific Northwest, were handpicked by promoter and owner
of Howitzer Productions, Frank Hetzel.
Seattle locals IN MEMORIUM have the prestigious main stage slot before SADUS.
IN MEMORIUM's debut recording, "From Misery Come Darkness", has been hailed
as a black metal masterpiece by many journalists in the metal community
"Last year's Northwest Death Fest was amazing," said IN MEMORIU guitarist
M. Krutsinger. "Horns up to Franko of Howitzer Productions for making it
the smoothest running fest I've ever been to. All of the bands stuck to
their time slots. It is just one of the many reasons we have decided to
play the festival this year. IN MEMORIUM will hit the stage full force and
hopefully have a hand at bringing the festival to the next level."
SCORCHED EARTH, another Seattle metal band, will play the festival for the
first time this year.
"It's an honor to be playing the Northwest Death Fest," said guitarist/vocalist
Terry Mcorriston. "I've been to the past two as a fan, but this is the first
year that SCORCHED EARTH will be playing it. We rarely play locally, so
this will be a good showcase for our live warfare. This year's fest is going
to annihilate for sure."
SADUS are returning to the festival for the second year in a row. The legendary
Bay Area Thrash band is currently touring Europe in support of their latest
album, "Out For Blood", released on Mascot Records.
"We are pumped for the chance to play up in Seattle again," said SADUS bassist
Steve DiGiorgio. "The new SADUS album is full of blood and rage, and we
expect nothing less from the insaniacs up in the Northwest. The show last
year was awesome and we are ready to come back totally out for blood!!!"
