Annual Metal and Hardcore fest stomps through Worcester again

To all who attended the 2 Annual Metal and Hardcore Fest last year, this years festivals look just as promising. The 3 annual New England is to be held at the Palladium on April 13 and 14. The Friday line up is the biggest yet and consists of Cannibal Corpse, Dimmu Borgir, The Haunted, Lamb of God, Malevolent Creation, Catastrophic (ex-Obituary), and Monstrosity. Cannibal Corpse, a band out of New York, preformed a killer show last year. Their presence this year is definitely a must see.

If you need another reason to attend, Dimmu Borgir is also an awesome black/heavy metal band from Norway. Their aggressive guitar and drum work, haunting keyboard melodies, and raw vocals, as well as their opera like vocal style portals the bands unique style. If you're into black/ heavy metal inspired by 1980's and classical music, then you cannot miss the New England Metal Fest.

Saturday's line-up will include Meshuggah, Amorphis, Opeth, Shadows Fall, Dying Fetus, Gorguts, God Forbid, Zao, Living Sacrifice, All Out War, Diecast, and Skinless. Other acts appearing on the festival include All That Remains, Poison the Well, God Below, Exhumed, Cannae, The Hope Conspiracy, Killswitch Engage, Nullset, One King Down, Blood Has Been Shed, and Vital Remains.

Record labels, vendors, and record distributors will set up shop in the balcony of the upstairs room. Century Media, Earache, Wonderdrug, Hydrahead, Relapse, and Metal Blade have all made their presence at this show an annual event. Band signings have also become a popular part of the festival. Advance tickets are $25 for Friday, April 13 and $30 for Saturday, April 14. Two-day passes are $50. Tickets go on sale Saturday, February 17 at all Strawberries Record Stores, online at, or by calling at (800) 477-6849.
