struck again at Fresno's Rainbow Ballroom with featured artist
OF GOD ::, ::
::, :: MACHINE
HEAD :: and France's own death metal gents
:: on the Sacrament Tour 2007.
Fresno was caught unguarded for the energy of this magnitude of

evening. Nevertheless the night was filled with exciting atmosphere
charging everyone as well as myself for this years upcoming show
events I can hardly wait. To boldly go where no metal woman has
