The Festival included heavy hitters Chimaira, Incantation, Vicious Rumors, The Browning, Acheron, Byzantine Affiance, Vindicator, Maggot Twat, Single Bullet Theory, Seven Witches along with Dark Star Records top performing acts Low Twelve, Bloody Mary, Conquest and Two Ton Anvil. Also included was a special performance by Rob Mason’s own band Betrayed With A Kiss. Jeffrey A. Swanson President of Dark Star Records would like to congratulate Rob and Sarah Mason on the success of Indianapolis Metal Fest III, and I would also like to thank Lloyd Freeze VP of Dark Star Records, Baby D Frost and all the kick ass bands who performed at this years festival. Rob Mason said he was gonna make a big comeback with the Indianapolis Metal Fest, and that he did. We look forward to seeing everyone next year at Indianapolis Metal Fest IV.
