“Four regional bands will be taking over the Olson Cultural Event Center stage in Le Mars Saturday. LeMarsaggedon starts at 7 p.m. and runs until 11 p.m., featuring Sioux City bands Threatenol, Devour Once Dead and Absolute Pestilence along with Norfolk, Neb. rockers The Blood of War. "It's a bunch of over average looking dudes playing the soothing sounds of metal for the downtown," said Chuck Woll, a Le Mars native and member of Threatenol. "We usually get a good crowd." He said the show will be a "heavy, fast, grooving, sludgy good time." Threatenol is no stranger to Le Mars or the Olson Cultural Event Center stage. Previous shows have drawn a good crowd for the band, Woll said. ”

“When naming a metal show, suggest the event is epic. Check. The end of the world? Even better. This weekend? It’s LeMarsaggedon. The Saturday metal bash brings together four area bands and enough hell-raising to summon the end — the end of summer, at least. “Extreme with the heaviness, we keep a groove to snap your neck to,” vocalist Luke Schroder said of his band Threatenol. They will share the outdoor stage with Absolute Pestilence, The Blood of War and Devour Once Dead this Saturday at the Olson Cultural Event Center parking lot in Le Mars. The bonus? Bring your coolers (even beer) and kids. Then get pumped up for the end of summer. And it’s not going to be pretty ”

“The Sioux City-based band Threatenol has not broken up. They have simply been in Antarctica wrapping up a record. “The Government actually got us out of retirement,” lead singer of the five-piece band, Luke Schroder jokingly explained. “They said they wanted us to do a benefit concert for the Gulf oil spill. So of course we had to come back.” In actuality, the heavy-metal group has been on a year-long hiatus. They haven’t been in Antarctica nor has the government recruited them. “We needed to take a year off to really make a great record.” Schroder said. “We’re coming back now because we’re ready.””
