ALESTORM frontman Christopher Bowes had the following to say about Paganfest America Part III: “Ahoy there, fuckwads and gobshites. Am I allowed to say ‘fuckwad’? Who cares… Anyway, just giving all you North American types a reminder to get your shit-proof pants on, ‘cos I’m confident that the upcoming Paganfest America tour is gonna make you all crap yourselves with joy. ALESTORM are gonna be onstage every night out-partying and out-drinking everyone there, especially all you Viking lightweights! You wanna take that challenge? Then get your asses down to a show and show us you’re better!” Adds ARKONA vocalist Masha “Scream” Arhipova, “We saw that you, our North American fans, know and support us; we saw that you know and love our songs; we saw that you want us to come again. That’s why we decided to come back to North America, after our amazing tour with Korpiklaaini, to play again for you!”

Says EX DEO frontman Maurizio Iacono, “With EX DEO at the dawn of a new album in 2012 entitled Caligula, we are beyond excited to announce our appearance at the legendary Paganfest in America. We played the Euro version before and it was incredible – it’s time to feel the wrath of ancient Rome!” Adds HUNTRESS vocalist Jill Janus, “HUNTRESS is thrilled to join the Paganfest America tour this year! We’re honored to share the stage with Turisas, ALESTORM, EX DEO, and ARKONA. This is our first festival tour before our debut album is released Spring/Summer 2012 on NAPALM RECORDS. Being true pagans ourselves, we shall enjoy all the hedonistic revelry Paganfest brings!”
