Inquisition at Saint Vitus, 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
Inquisition

We've already mentioned that the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will return in 2014 from April 17-19 at the Worcester Palladium. The festival has added some notable (and varied) bands to the lineup: 1349, Battlecross, Black Crown Initiate, Carnifex, Erra, Fallujah, Goatwhore, I Declare War, Inquisition, Rivers of Nihil, Sworn In, Broken Hope and The Acacia Strain. It's pretty hard to imagine super-serious black metal bands like Inquisition and 1349 sharing the stage with derpy deathcore like The Acacia Strain, but that's the age we live in. The backstage conversations between those bands will probably be golden.

In related news, LA hardcore outfit Alpha & Omega (who were already on the bill) will be touring on their way to the festival starting in March, along with (various combinations of) Cruel Hand, Alpha & Omega, Naysayer, Bent Life, Barrier, Malfunction and Will To Die. There's no NYC date, but the tour will hit Long Island on 4/15 at the Even Flow Bar & Grill (in Bay Shore). Tickets are are on sale.

Check out the full run of Alpha & Omega dates and the full lineup for NEMHF to date below.
