Performers at this Event
Anthrax
Anthrax Remove performer from this event
Nearly as much as Metallica or Megadeth, Anthrax were responsible for the emergence of speed and thrash metal. Combining the speed and fury of hardcore punk with the prominent guitars and vocals of heavy metal, they helped create a new subgenre of heavy metal on their early albums....
Motorhead
Motorhead Remove performer from this event
Motörhead's overwhelmingly loud and fast style of heavy metal was one of the most groundbreaking styles the genre had to offer in the late '70s. Though the group's leader, Lemmy Kilminster, had his roots in the hard-rocking space rock band Hawkwind, Motörhead didn't bother with his old group's progressive tendencies, choosing to amplify the heavy biker rock elements of Hawkwind with the speed of punk rock....
Slayer
Slayer Remove performer from this event
Slayer were one of the most distinctive, influential, and extreme thrash metal bands of the 1980s. Their graphic lyrics deal with everything from death and dismemberment to war and the horrors of hell....
Slipknot
Slipknot Remove performer from this event
Slipknot's mix of grinding, post-Korn alternative metal, Marilyn Manson-esque neo-shock rock, and rap-metal helped make them one of the most popular bands in the so-called nu-metal explosion of the late '90s....
High On Fire
High On Fire Remove performer from this event
When stoner rock mavens Sleep called it quits in the late 1990s, guitarist Matt Pike formed the doom metal band High on Fire. Surely one of the most muscular power trios since Motorhead, High on Fire are also reminiscent of genre defining metal acts such as Celtic Frost, Slayer, and, of course, Black Sabbath....
As I Lay Dying
As I Lay Dying Remove performer from this event
Prolific metalcore pioneers from San Diego who mixed Christian themes with throaty hardcore vocals and thrashing guitars. ~ Rovi
The Devil Wears Prada
The Devil Wears Prada Remove performer from this event
Mystifyingly taking their name from a popular chick lit bestseller, the Devil Wears Prada is easily one of the most bizarrely named bands of their time. Since the group is a Christian metalcore act from Dayton, Ohio, one assumes that the band name was chosen not because the sextet is a foe of former Vogue editor Anna Wintour, but metaphorically, as in "the devil is a deceptively appealing figure....
Whitechapel
Whitechapel Remove performer from this event
Named after the neighborhood in which Jack the Ripper did his dirty work, Knoxville’s Whitechapel perpetrate the same kind of frantic violence with their three-guitar deathcore assault. Since their 2006 inception, the band has produced a potent blend of death metal, grindcore, and meat and potatoes hardcore, picking and choosing aspects of all three to make music that satisfies them....
Asking Alexandria
Asking Alexandria Remove performer from this event
Spanning two continents, three names, and nearly a dozen members, Asking Alexandria are a band whose short career seems to be more about change than anything else. The brainchild of guitarist Ben Bruce, the band was originally formed in Dubai in 2003 under the name Amongst Us, which soon changed to End of Reason before eventually settling on Asking Alexandria in 2006....
