NY's own Suffocation @ 2006 NE Hardcore & Metal Festival (Markcoatsworth)
Suffocation

Gigantour has cancelled their April 24th date in Worcester, Massachusetts.... but, every single band ON Gigantour added another date to make up for it - April 25th (one day later)... in Worcester, Massachusetts. All the Gigantour band performances will now instead be part of day one of the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival! Thats right.... Megadeth, In Flames, Job For A Cowboy, Children Of Bodom, and High On Fire will meet up with almost 70 other bands including headliners Dimmu Borgir, Shadows Fall, Behemoth, Ministry, Meshuggah, and Nevermore during the three day festival (Full band list below). Tickets ($47.50 for Fri, $45 for Sat or Sun or $129 for all three) go on sale this Friday, Feb 15th at 10AM via enterthevault.com, tickets.com, or by phone at 800-477-6849.

Nuclear AssailtThat doesn't do it for ya? Prefer your bands with "f*ck" in their name? How about the Maryland Deathfest? Along with bands like Torsof*ck and F*ck... I'm Dead, you can check out monsters like the mighty Anaal Nathrakh (their only US appearance scheduled for this year) Repulsion, Disfear, Grave, Impaled, and thrash legends Nuclear Assault. Tickets can be purchased here. (Full band list and set times below)

Maybe a deathfest sounds too tame, you like your festival with a little more zazz. How about a murderfest? The LA Murderfest to be exact, taking place in Los Angeles, CA @ The Knitting Factory in Hollywood from April 18th - April 20th. The Converge/Baroness/Red Chord/Genghis Tron extravaganza will be in the hiz-ouse, along with NH's own Trap Them, Vital Remains, and vegetarian superheroes Cattle Decapitation. Honestly, can you really argue with the tagline "2 stages + 3 days = Total Brutality"?

Don't live in those towns? Too lazy to travel to them? Irrational fear of mechanized transportation? Luckily, a few killer bands will be swinging through a town near you on the Summer Slaughter 2008 (dates TBD, starting in June)..... bands like The Black Dahlia Murder, Kataklysm, Vader, Cryptopsy, and Whitechapel! Other dates and lineups below....

By typing "metal sucks" you're pretty much saying "I'm playing into ready-made cliches and proving I'm incapable of being open-minded, multi-faceted, or having even a bit of depth to my opinions of supposed taste in music."

Still, all the "metal sucks" posts are cute. Awwww. Lookit.

Folksy "indie" pop with minimalist electronica overtones and simultaneous self-concious allusions to late 70's arena rock and angular post-punk RULES!!!!!!

Metal is contrived. CONTRIVED, I say!

Your FACE is contrived.

Dammit, why can't I like Deerhoof AND Genghis Tron?

Posted by Anonymous | February 15, 2008 11:50 AM

what would make for the best hipster vs. metal death match?

my vote:

vampire weekend vs. megadeth?

Posted by Anonymous | February 15, 2008 12:07 PM

Mustaine allegedly knows karate and I'd hate to see the guys in Vampire Weekend get kicked in the face. They don't seem like douches, so I think Voxtrot should be in their place.

There is another fest you might want to look at, with Suffocation as a headliner:

Central Illinois Metalfest -
