If that wasn’t enough, grinding heroes Pig Destroyer will help presenting sponsors Relapse Records celebrate their 30th anniversary with the first-ever performance of PD’s game-changing record Prowler in the Yard!

This also marks the Metal & Beer Fest return of Norwegian black metal godfathers Mayhem, with first-time appearances from s Norwegian black metal hero Abbath, New Wave of British Heavy Metal heroes Satan, heavy metal revivalists Night Demon, goth-infused metal upstarts Idle Hands, quickly rising old-schoolers Haunt, New England doom lords Magic Circle and Seattle funeral doom crushers Un, who round out the first wave of bands on the bill with many more major acts to be announced in November!

Of course, this is a metal and beer festival and we’ve got the weekend’s other vital component totally covered via the world’s most metal breweries!
