This Is Hardcore Fest Gets Even Harder

100 Demons

That headline truly is the height of my laziness, but you know something fucker — it’s been a long week, and the weekend doesn’t look like it’ll be much better. So back off. The organizers of this year’s This Is Hardcore Fest have added a second slate of bands to the already imposing bill. Some […]

Gwar Playing 2013 This Is Hardcore Fest


Gwar? Hardcore? Surely, you jest! How can you call your festival This Is Hardcore and have an alien metal band headline? This world constantly amuses and amazes me. The Electric Factory in Philadelphia is the site of this year’s fest, set for August 8 through August 11. Who else is playing? Glad you asked.

Terror, Goatwhore Added To New England Metal & Hardcore Festival

"Hey cookie, I dropped my pencil"

They might as well just release the entire lineup already. It’s not like the bill doesn’t already fucking rule. You think adding Terror’s going to get some kid to go, “Wait one hot fucking second! I wasn’t sold until this Terror announcement. Fuck it, I’ll go.” At this point, people are either going or not […]

Trapped Under Ice Announce Hiatus

Trapped Under Ice

Good. This band blows hobos. I’m glad they’re taking a long overdue break. In a statement, Trapped Under Ice — the most mediocre of mediocre hardcore bands — says the hiatus starts in August, after they play a ton of farewell gigs. “We are NOT breaking up. This is by no means the end of […]

Two More Bands Added To New England Metal & Hardcore Fest

Job For A Cowboy

Oh yes, folks. The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival keeps growing. Like that thing in your shorts. Keep taking those vitamins, and it’ll be a full three inches…from the GROUND! Job For A Cowboy and D.R.I. were both added to this year’s Metalfest bill. Metalfest goes down at The Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts, on […]

Dillinger Escape Plan, Allegaeon Tapped For New England Metal & Hardcore Festival

Dillinger Escape Plan

The annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival XV revealed today that a bunch of bands have been added to the already impressive bill. Which bands? How about Allegaeon, Alpha & Omega, Born Low, MurderDeathKill […]

Full Lineup For Bringin’ It Back For The Kids Fest 2: Electric Boogaloo Announced

Into The Moat

Oh man! The lineup has been revealed for the upcoming “Bringin’ It Back For The Kids Fest 2: Electric Boogaloo” festival, and it’s mostly shit. The reunited Into The Moat will be playing, as will Xibalba and Abiotic. Otherwise, I have no desire to be at Rocketown in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, on October 12 and […]

Into The Moat Reuniting For Floridian Festival

Into The Moat

OK, well…I have two weeks vacation time from the day job. Maybe I need to drive down to Florida, stop in Sanford along the way to see Jason Suecof, and hit up the unfortunately-named “Bringin’ It Back For The Kids 2” festival. The fest will take place at Rocketown in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, on October […]

Trapped Under Ice To Tour

You'd like to be trapped under her, wouldn't you?

Who cares? That band is fucking weak sauce. Yet, I have a feeling one or two of you might care that they’re touring. And maybe I am trolling just a touch. For real though, Trapped Under Ice are deplorable. They’re about as talented as my nipple hair, and my nipple hair specializes in Hatebreed covers, […]
