While I am not going to be able to make the trek up to Montreal for this massive festival event, I did want to start showcasing it for you readers and listing it on the Calendar because for the last couple of years I have learned that numerous groups of our regional Metal Legions have been taking the trip. Take a look at the Official Event Poster. I’ll return with a couple of additional thoughts afterwards.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m sorry for not lining out the bands one by one but I felt that the information was pretty clear in the provided poster. You’ll have to do a little bit of homework about who is playing on what day but I think you can survive that. Now I know I’ve said that I wasn’t able to go already but “Wow” do I wish that was not the case based on so many awesome acts being a part of this festival. A headlining Slipknot, Faith No More and Korn with tons of other notables to speak of. Some real favorites of mine are on this event and I am speaking mostly about Within Temptation, Mastodon, Meshuggah and Lamb of God to focus on my own main interests. That is by no means an insult to the other awesome acts I saw listed. Perhaps next year I will look deeper into this affair and map out a plan with other friends in media. Let’s see what happens when the time arises. Until then, what are your thoughts on this festival? Let me know what you think, especially if you have ever been here before. The comments are open for you to enlighten us.
