"Thank you (S.O.T.B.) for bringing me out to experience this black obsidian jewel of a festival!!

I’m so inspired by all the metal acts I saw - funny, sexy to wonderfully weird. I heard metal songs that I never thought one could dance to, and I saw costumes that I never thought one could pair with metal! You bad bitches have inspired me to dig deeper in hell and create darker acts! Long live Sign of the Beast Burlesque!"
