Death Threat
Death Threat Remove performer from this event
Formed in 1997 out of former Hatebreed members, Death Threat's hardcore metal sound lands somewhere between Sick of It All's aggressive approach and Napalm Death's thick sound.

Gaza

Skeletonwitch
Skeletonwitch Remove performer from this event
Although they only came together as a band in 2003, the members of Athens, Ohio's Skeletonwitch draw the bulk of their inspiration from artists and musical styles born all of two decades earlier -- namely the undying flame of classic, Bay Area thrash, its creative bedrock in the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and, to a lesser degree, death, black, and Viking metal....
Molotov Solution
Molotov Solution Remove performer from this event
A Las Vegas based death metal outfit, Molotov Solution kept the proceedings interesting by melding their death metal chops with grindcore, hardcore, and a skeptical political eye, resulting in a deal with genre label Twelve Gauge, and a debut album that was released in 2008....
