Co-headlining the fourth annual Pathfinder MetalFest on Saturday, July 7th, 2012 with Theocracy will be Virginia’s emotive, epic metal band WHILE HEAVEN WEPT.
States WHILE HEAVEN WEPT guitarist and founding member Tom Phillips:
"It's truly an honor to be part of an event that is actively contributing to the rejuvenation of the traditional METAL scene in the Southeast of the USA. We are extremely pleased to be one of the headliners and will most certainly strive to represent every era of WHILE HEAVEN WEPT over the past 22 years in our set, including the debut of brand new material from the forthcoming album! As many of you know, we seldom perform in the United States. This will be an amazing event, so don't miss this opportunity to support proper METAL and in doing so you'll get an insight into our next album before anyone else! With horns held high, the battle for METAL rages ever onward!"
The Pathfinder MetalFest IV will be held at The Local at Sidelines in Marietta, Georgia (30 minutes northwest of Atlanta), an intimate club venue known for its great sound and lights. Founded on the premise of featuring high-caliber, dynamic, heavy metal acts from across the United States, this upcoming edition goes international with the addition of thrash-metallers Machinage from Brazil. Also confirmed to appear are Lorenguard, Void Of Reason, and Brave. Other acts will be announced soon.
Only 250 General Admission tickets will be put on sale through Ticket Alternative on January 2nd, 2012.
