The initial lineup for the 15th annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival has been announced and it looks pretty damn impressive.
The three day festival will take place April 19th-21st, and will once again be held at The Palladium in Worcester Massachusetts. Both Hatebreed and Anthrax will bring their current tours to Worcester and serve as headliners. Opeth and Suicidal Tendencies are also listed as headliners according to the above poster. Other highlights of the bill include Ensiferum and Katatonia.
Update 01/23/12: Additional artists have been announced for this year’s festival. Highlights include Dillinger Escape Plan and Allegaeon (who just so happened to record our favorite heavy metal record of 2012). Trapped Under Ice, Alpha & Omega, Born Low, MurderDeathKill and Dark Sermon have also been added.
Tickets are set to go on sale Wednesday January 16th. For up to the minute information, make sure you check out the festival’s official website by clicking here.
