Indianapolis Metal Fest 2013 lineup announced

Official press release: Festival promoters for Indianapolis Metal Fest have released the lineup for this year's event, slated to take place on September 20th and 21st. True to their promise to put on a European-style underground metal festival that rejects the American "Corporate Festival" trend that has dominated -- and according to festival founder Rob Mason -- commercialized, castrated, and attempted to make heavy metal mainstream, the lineup is chock full of some of the most brutal, underground artists in metal. Some of these bands include DECREPIT BIRTH, INCANTATION, ACHERON, FUNERUS, the recently reunited BYZANTINE, TEMPLE OF BRUTALITY -- a band featuring Megadeth bassist David Ellefson and ex-WASP drummer Stet Howland, guitar virtuoso ANGEL VIVALDI, THE CONVALESCENCE, SADGIQACEA, metal legends VICIOUS RUMORS and LEATHERWOLF, progressive metallers SEVEN WITCHES, SINGLE BULLET THEORY, MOBILE DEATHCAMP featuring ex-GWAR member Beefcake The Mighty, and DIRGE WITHIN featuring ex-members of the band Soil. Also, true to their belief that Metal is in desperate need of new heros, IMF promoters have included a number of lesser known metal bands hand-picked from around the United States, including bands like SYSTEMS, EVOKED, FALL OF THE ALBATROSS, BURNING THE DAY, A FALL TO BREAK, ELCTRIKCHAIR, BEYOND AGONY, OF CREATIONS, EYES OF FIRE and many more to showcase their talents at the festival. Venue and ticket information will be released at the end of April.
