For the 18th consecutive year, the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will be taking place this weekend, and once again, Metal Insider will proudly be in attendance. Two days of the best in metal and hardcore will be taking over Worcester, MA’s Palladium, with The Black Dahlia Murder, Bury Your Dead, Fallujah, Madball and more on Friday, April 15th and Killswitch Engage, Memphis May Fire, Unearth, 36 Crazyfists, Toothgrinder, Unlocking the Truth and many more playing on Saturday.
Like last year, Metal Insider will have a table upstairs in the second room with all the other vendors, and this time, we’ll be teaming up with our friends from PUCK HCKY, creators of hockey gear for metal fans or metal gear for hockey fans. If you’ve been reading Snipe City, our recurring hockey column with 36 Crazyfists’ Brock Lindow and PUCK HCKY’s Matt Marini, you know how passionate about hockey 36CF and PUCK are. You’ll be able to pick up some of the band’s signature gear from the brand, and we’ll also have 36 limited edition posters available (pictured) to pick up. In fact, Brock will be appearing at the Metal Insider/PUCK HCKY booth at 5pm on Saturday to sign them. We’ll have other swag on hand as well, so stop by the booth and say hi.
Tickets are still available for the Fest, and you can grab them here.
