Reminder – The N.E. Metal and Hardcore Fest is this coming week!

Well the 17th annual NEMHF is coming to Worcester MA this Friday – Saturday and Sunday. Looks like the scheduled has finally been locked into place and I thought Saturday was the hands down the best day BUT Friday looks equally appealing. Friday’s slate brings in Between the Buried and Me as the headliners, then you have The Red Chord which I thought were dormant seeing all the recent changes in the band including one of them becoming a police officer in the Manchester NH police force! Death Angel, one of my favorite bands is also on the under card and then Corrosion of Conformity. Those bands alone are worth a look at. Saturday is still bringing in the national bands with Testament as the headliner followed by Exodus, and Nuclear Assault. Sunday is for the local folks hoping to hit it big. Amazingly, tickets are still available, including VIP tickets for $85. VIP gets you a meet and greet with the bands. My brother is going so I’ll be sure to get a report from him about the shows.
