May MetalFest will take place in Portland, Oregon, U.S.A. on May 4, May 11, May 19, May 25-26, 2012.
Witch Mountain, Nemesis and Proven are among the bands that will perform at the May MetalFest 2012.
The event was created specifically to honor the local metal music scene and rebuild a genre in Portland that has produced many successful acts, events, and venues for over four decades. Creator and producer of The Chronicles Of Rock Radio, Rod Black explains:
“You can’t have a local rock and metal radio station without supporting unsigned acts right out of your back yard. We provide National content onTCOR Radio that covers a worldwide audience but it all starts locally. 33% of our format on TCOR Radio backs up that commitment to fighting for the unsigned underdog.
May MetalFest was created to support a viable genre that exists in Portland and surrounding cities in Oregon. We appreciate what Music Fest Northwest and many other entities have done. We atTCOR Radio simply want to carry that torch, but on a completely local level. We plan to make May MetalFest a yearly event that gets bigger and bigger and bigger. May is the perfect run before Summer!”
