Laz

Kenosha, Wisconsin (USA) thrashers Lazarus A.D. have come a long way in the last year, having re-released The Onslaught through Metal Blade and touring US and Canada with the likes of Amon Amarth, Goatwhore, Skeletonwitch and most recently Testament and Unearth. Lazarus A.D. will now be taking their energetic and enthralling stage show overseas to the fans at Japan’s infamous Loud Park festival! Bassist/vocalist, Jeff Paulick, describes being invited to play as “an unbelievable honor” and the band is unanimous in their excitement about doing a festival of this magnitude this early in their career. Also confirmed so far for this year’s Loud Park also are Poison The Well, Napalm Death, Arch Enemy, Megadeth, Rob Zombie, Slayer and the legendary Judas Priest! Loud Park is scheduled for October 17th and 18th – more info can be found on http://www.loudpark.com/09/.

Lead guitarist Dan Gapen sums it up: “All I can say is wow. I am so honored to play a festival of such magnitude. I can’t wait to experience the Japanese culture…Sake anyone?!?!”
