It is with sadness and total understanding I must announce Eternal Tears of Sorrow have cancelled their festival appearance. Due to the unknown future circumstances related to Covid-19 both at home, with their families and abroad, the band felt it best to withdraw now and allow me time to plan accordingly. I have nothing but respect for the band and understand their difficult decision. They have been totally professional throughout this entire ordeal and I wish them the absolute best.

I am happy to announce that Napalm recording artist, ÆTHER REALM, have accepted an invitation to perform at ProgPower USA XXI. The band’s latest album, “Redneck Vikings from Hell,” (out May 1, 2020) takes their brand of melo-death/folk metal to the next level. Our audience will truly appreciate their audacious and expanding styles on the new album including, banjo picking, flamenco, epic instrumentals, crushing riffs, over-the-top choruses, and even some lighter moments. The new album truly has something for everyone as you cannot simply categorize the album based on an individual song.

Please join me in welcoming the band to the ProgPower USA family.
