Why can't the U.S. get some good festivals? I wasn't planning on attending, but what a shitty first day lineup for the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival. Once the greatest of all U.S. festivals, the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival has just announced this years lineup. The first night features headliners Attack Attack!, the auto-tuned, keyboard heavy, Christian core band. These guys are more at home on the AP Music Tour or some shit like that. Supporting Attack Attack! is Vanna. If you aren't a fan of -core bands, avoid night one entirely. If you are determined to go, Saturday night is your best bet for seeing some bands if you like the hardcore and grindcore acts.
