NEW ENGLAND METAL AND HARDCORE FESTIVAL 14 ANNOUNCES LINEUP
WORCESTER, Mass. – Killswitch Engage has been confirmed as the headliner of the 14th Annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival.
The festival helped to launch the career of the Westfield, Mass., band and the festival vets went on to sign with Roadrunner Records. With over 1.5 million records sold in the United States alone and a Grammy nomination under its belt, the band will return to the NEMF stage in 2012.About this homecoming of sorts, vocalist Howard Jones said, “ Yup, trouble's brewing. It’s been great to have time off, but now it’s back to business. All the guys in KsE are truly excited to be playing NEMHF again. It’s like old times: hanging out with your friends, but they have mustaches now. Come on out, bring a friend and let’s make some sweat!"
Also headlining the biggest and longest running metal festival in America for 2012 is The Black Dahlia Murder. Lead singer Trevor Strnad sums it up best: "It has always been a huge pleasure to play New England Metal And Hardcore Fest... I can't thank them enough for involving us again. Some of my fondest drunken memories are from NEMHF... I'm looking to rack up a few more!!! Come out and bang your heads til they fall off. I'll meet you by the sausage man!"
The 14th edition of the festival, which will take place the weekend of April 20-22 at the Palladium in Worcester, Mass., will also present a host of other festival vets and up-and-comers:
The lineup for for Friday April 20th includesTHE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, The Acacia Strain, Oceano, All Shall Perish, Nile, Skeletonwitch, Lionheart, Fleshgod Apocalypse, First Blood, Molotov Solution, The Contortionist, Reign Supreme, Conducting From The Grave, Fit For An Autopsy, Incendiary, Palehorse, Hour Of Penance, Legion and Relentless.

The other bands we can confirm for Saturday are Overkill, iwrestledabearonce, Protest the Hero, Periphery, Bane, Shipwreck, Cruel Hand, Aborted, Blackguard, The Mongoloids, Belgardor, System Divide, Naysayer, The Greenery, Diamond Plate, Rotting Out, Expire, Elitist, Trump The Harlot, Manners and Malefice

"This year’s lineup came together very well and we are very proud of it,” said festival organizer Scott Lee. “New England Metal And Hardcore Festival is a fan driven festival and the bands we have put together are a good representation of that” adds John Peters - MassConcerts owner and festival co-founder.

Nile, Fleshgod, and Hour of Penance are all that's worthwhile Friday. Overkill and Aborted Saturday (Wonder who the headliner is...probably someone really shitty.) And I could deal with Periphery, although I greatly preferred them pre-emo-singer.

Sunday doesn't exist.

I dunno about that. Granted theyve always had bad bands on the bill, but the ones 10ish years ago were awesome. They used to have great headliners.



toggletoggle post by arilliusbm  at Dec 12,2011 5:14pm
Also the majority of acceptable and listenable bands back then were greater. That being said, it was always a battleground for "metalheads" and "hardcore sxe" people. I dont want to know what its like now.



toggletoggle post by Mark_R at Dec 12,2011 5:17pm
I've never been to this, although I sort of wanted to the year that Trouble played (still never got to see Trouble and have given up that hope).
I later heard that their set was 20 minutes.

I came close to buying tickets in 2008, when Overkill cancelled two days prior. That was a close one.

I was hoping somebody would post that flyer.

Friday: Morbid Angel before they became Radikult, Napalm Death (though long washed up at this point), Converge presumably Jane Doe era? Not a fan of any of their other albums. Bongzilla. DEP, Exhumed, Benumb. Okay, not bad.

Saturday: GWAR is always fun, Catheter... what the fucking hell is all that other shit?

Sunday: Monster X. That's it.

FEST SUCKS.



toggletoggle post by KEVORD  at Dec 12,2011 5:26pm
It was 1997 so pre Jane Doe.



toggletoggle post by Lamp  at Dec 12,2011 5:28pm edited Dec 12,2011 5:28pm
That was well before DEP put out Calculating Infinity then too... but on the other hand, that had to have been right when both Benumb and Exhumed were right at the peak of their game, that I would have wanted to see. Too bad I was only 10 years old.

So I would have gone to Friday, passed on the rest.

The clip was Killswitch Engage. Superjoint Ritual broke up permanently as far as I know. They were pretty terrible anyway.
