Show Review: New England Metal and Hardcore Fest (Day 3)

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, June 13, 2012 at 11:12 PM (PST)

The New England Metal and Hardcore Fest is an institution, and this year was one of the best yet. The Palladium Theatre in Worcester, MA was choked with kids wearing way too many band t-shirts and full of enthusiasm on Day 3, when I attended. Days 1 and 2 this year boasted bands like Dragonforce, Bane, Unearth, This is Hell, Nile and The Greenery (though all in all the fest was way more hardcore and metalcore than metal this year, or what I consider metal). Still, I had to attend day 3 and see the return of the original Killswitch Engage line-up plus Recon with Rob Fusco (One King Down, Most Precious Blood)!

The show was awhile back in April at this point, but besides being very busy with multiple articles, bands of my own and jobs, I have also been trying to process all of the energy from that day and do it justice. Better late than never! (Just pretend this is a bi-monthly print mag and not a web site for a minute). Caught some good sets from For Today, Stick To Your Guns and many more.

By now it is no secret that the return of Killswitch Engage with Jesse Leach was a huge, powerful success that just might re-invigorate metalcore if scene kids take all that massive good energy to heart and stop the scene bullshit and redundant breakdowns. Jesse’s positive, spiritual and world searching lyrics initially defined the group that “killed Nu Metal”, before his absence of many years in other projects (Seemless,Times Of Grace and The Empire Shall Fall).
