Announcing The Lineup For Heavy Montreal 2016

Last year I started to broadcast the lineup of the Heavy Montreal Festival to keep our readers aware of some awesome events that are going on in other parts of our North American Metal scene. I didn’t get to that festival even though I wanted to but oh well, one cannot be everywhere right? The 2016 edition of this festival recently announced its lineup that will be appearing over the course of its two days and you can check that out on the poster below. I will chime in with additional thoughts afterwards.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As you can see the events main attractions will be a headlining Five Finger Death Punch on one night and Disturbed on the other. Unless I am mistaken about the main attraction for each night. I’ve seen FFDP on numerous occasions and they truly stir up the masses but I would be most excited to see bands like Nightwish, Mastodon, Ghost, Sabaton, Alter Bridge, Blind Guardian and Carcass the most. If you haven’t seen any of those bands yet please take my nod about them as a recommendation. Right now it’s too early for me to be able to say if I am going or not but I sure would like to this time around. I can never see Nightwish, Ghost or Sabaton and Alter Bridge enough based on past experiences. If I end up there you can be rest assured that a lot of photos will be posted here on the website. So tell me dear readers what do you think of this year’s lineup and are you planning on heading to Montreal for it. More importantly, do you have any room in the car for a travelling music scribe 

Announcing The Lineup For Heavy Montreal 2015

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.
