MITHRIDIUM Replaces LADY BEAST At Pre-Fest Showcase For Ohio’s Warriors Of Metal Fest VI Open Air
“Warriors Of Metal Fest VI Open Air will be held on June 28th and 29th, at the Frontier Ranch in Pataskala, Ohio, just 20 minutes East of the capital city of Columbus.
Due to a newly surfaced scheduling conflict with their upcoming Midwest tour, the Pittsburgh band LADY BEAST have infomed the organizers that they regretfully need to cancel their appearance at the Pre-Fest Showcase proceedings on June 27th at The Shrunken Head Rock Club in Columbus, Ohio. MITHRIDIUM will be the replacement to complete the lineup.
Festival organizer Datis Alaee states: “Whereas we and our fans are disappointed to not see Lady Beast in action at our festival, we all wish them well in all their future metal endeavors and we hope their Midwest tour is a success. To replace Lady Beast, however, the choice was very clear. We became aware of ONLY one band in the Columbus area that wholeheartedly threw their support behind the Warriors of Metal Fest Open Air and bought advanced tickets for themselves to attend the festival even though they were not playing the show. This kind of loyalty to our cause and cooperative spirit needs to be not only applauded but also rewarded, so the decision to invite Mithridium as a local support band to complete our Pre-Fest Showcase lineup was actually very obvious.”
Mithridium’s drummer and band representative Tony Kaliszewski has also issued the following statement: “We would like to thank the Warriors of Metal Fest Open Air organizers for bestowing upon us the opportunity to share Mithridium’s music with the die-hard fans and bands that will be travelling a great distance for the Fest. It is not every day one is graced with a Heavy Metal Open Air Festival in their back yard. We open our arms and look forward to meeting and welcoming everyone to our hometown of Columbus, Ohio.”
