New England Metal And Hardcore Festival Adds New Bands

As the mammoth lineup of audio obliteration continues to expand, the doers of the NEW ENGLAND METAL & HARDCORE FESTIVAL are pleased to bring Massachusetts metalcore merchants/NEMHF alumni, Unearth, as well as German psychedelic space rock perpetrators, Kadavar, to their coveted stages!

After fifteen years of blazing trails and live domination, Unearth emerged as part of a burgeoning revolution in heavy music and is now institutionalized as a relentless force in metal, standing the test of time with consistently creative output, tireless road warrior resilience, blue collar style workmanship and a resolute determination to pummel the masses. With five full-lengths under their proverbial belts and a new one on the way via eOne, Unearth returns to raze the stage of the Palladium as part of the NEW ENGLAND METAL & HARDCORE FESTIVAL for the sixth time.

Toting "down-to-earth handmade classic rock from a time when music still used to be true art," the riff-heavy spell-casters in Kadavar hail from Berlin and bow to the teachings of Black Sabbath, Pentagram and early Hawkwind. Their forthcoming new full-length, Abra Kadavar, will be released via Nuclear Blast just days before their NEMHF performance. Worcester, are you ready rock?

Additionally, the sorcerers behind the NEMHF are eager to officially welcome the first annual Best In Brutality Tour to its maniacal three-day ambush. The punishing five-band tour package will level Worcester on Thursday, April 17th and features the co-headlining assault of esteemed deathcore brutalizers, Oceano, and legendary death metal titans, Broken Hope, alongside the combined sonic destruction of Fallujah, Rivers Of Nihil and Kublai Khan.

Celebrating its sixteenth anniversary, the now iconic NEW ENGLAND METAL & HARDCORE FESTIVAL will commence on April 17th and run through April 19th. Featuring two stages, the yearly gala continues to drive dozens of bands and thousands of fans from around the country to the renowned Worcester Palladium for a solid weekend of mayhem! Initial day-to-day lineups are officially posted with more bands to be confirmed in the coming weeks. (Note this is NOT the official running order).
