The Legions of Metal Festival was born out of the end of the Ragnarokkr Metal Apocalypse Festival. Legions of Metal Festival will continue to bring the best of the classic metal from the 80’s that we all love and also bring in the newer bands who will carry the torch into the upcoming years in the metal world. You will be able to see some of the newest bands in the scene throughout the day and end each night watching the bands you grew up listening to. The fest will feature two stages and plenty of vendors.
Salvación began as the brainchild of drummer Carlos Denogean. Eager not only to pay tribute to classic Heavy Metal but to play a part in keeping the tradition alive and vital as well. The band formed in 2009 when childhood friend and guitarist Nicholas Sponsel moved to Wilmington North Carolina with the same ambitions. Enlisting the help of some of the most talented musicians in the area they set out to have their vision realized. Despite lineup changes the core of the group remained and in less than three years self-released two full length albums and played numerous shows with some of the best internationally known Heavy Metal bands. In 2013 they set out on their most ambitious project yet, a concept record inspired by Hernán Cortés and the conquest of Mexico. Identifying with the historical figure’s unwavering conviction for his goal the record is a monument to the band’s steadfast resolution for Heavy Metal. The year 2013 also marked the return of Lead guitarist Dan Todd who contributed immensely on the band’s well received second album Way More Unstoppable. The alchemy of this lineup is the strongest it has ever been and they are determined now more than ever to keep defending the faith of True Heavy Metal.
