Due to a scheduling conflict with their upcoming Midwest tour, Pittsburgh heavy metal band Lady Beast have regretfully canceled their appearance at the Warriors of Metal Pre-Fest Showcase on June 27th in Columbus, Ohio.Local Melodic Thrash Metal band 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 1 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 MetalOpen Air Festival in their back yard. We open our arms and look forward to meeting and welcoming everyone to our hometown of Columbus, Ohio. Stay Metal! -Tony Kaliszewski
