Exclamation MYSTIC PROPHECY & SUSPYRE CONFIRMED FOR CHICAGO POWERFEST 2007

Germany's melodic power metallers MYSTIC PROPHECY and New Jersey's neo-classical power metallers SUSPYRE have been confirmed for CHICAGO POWERFEST 2007. The 5th annual metal festival will take place on Friday, April 20th and Saturday, April 21st at The Pearl Room in Mokena, IL.

Mystic Prophecy will be making their US debut as an exclusive one-off performance in support of their latest album "Savage Souls". They will also be featured as a co-headliner with Solitude Aeturnus on the Friday night of the fest. In addition, the up-and-coming band Suspyre has been chosen to be the new opener for that Friday, which will bump Shatter Messiah & Benedictum up to the second & third slots that evening. Suspyre will also be playing in support of their upcoming new album, "A Great Divide", to be released in March.


Current Powerfest lineup:

SOLITUDE AETURNUS
MYSTIC PROPHECY
MARTYR
SATURNUS
NOVEMBERS DOOM
BENEDICTUM
SHATTER MESSIAH
THURISAZ
SUSPYRE

The final band to complete the lineup, which is also targeted to fill the headlining slot on the Saturday night of the fest, will be announced very soon. Ticket information, including both single day and discounted two day passes, will be released immediately following the completion of the lineup.

Nope, not this year....it's all about the fest this year & trying to get a full lineup of unique bands to the Chicago scene. Novembers Doom is the only Chicago band, but they play the area very rarely, plus they have a killer new album that just came out this week...so it was the perfect opp for us to invite them.

Kudos on the fantastic line-up

Arg. Just arg.

I'd sooooo love to come out this year, but I won't have the money or the vacation time. Maybe if the last headlining band turns out to be Korpiklaani... hehe
