DistortedFate at Paladino's September 6, 2014
Thanks to everyone who made Paladino's Iron Maidens Xmas Bash an awesome gig for all the bands!
DF especially thanks:
  • Special guest guitarist Dave Celentano for helping us out on our own "Haunting" and our cover of Slayer's "Dead Skin Mask"
  • Renowned photographer Jack Lue for taking awesome shots of us - check them out at Highwire Daze Online
  • Legendary blues guitarist Eric Sardinas who was in the house and gave us a much-appreciated shout-out
  • And of course our fans, old and new, for coming out to support us on the busy Saturday night before Christmas.

  • Thanks!
