We have some amazing bands to look forward to at this year’s Heavy Montreal! DYING FETUS joins the programming to inject a dose of their classic death metal and vicious blast beats into the Heavy Montreal weekend. CORROSION OF CONFORMITY is bringing their heavy, grimy metal to the festival for the first time with their best album in decades, No Cross No Crown!
DEVIN TOWNSEND will perform an acoustic set on Saturday, July 27th, which he explains in his own words; “In a world of computers and social media, to be stripped of all the bells and whistles is a very important step for my reintroduction to the live concert world. I truly hope you’ll join me and I look forward to being the most honest I can be with you at these special shows.”
DEMOLITION HAMMER is classic New York thrash Metal at its finest! Original members Steve Reynolds and James Reilly brought the band back from a 23-year hiatus in 2016 and HEAVY MONTREAL is one of their only Canadian dates!
Fresh off the 2018 release of Transcanadian Anger, Montreal doom metal band DOPETHRONE is bringing their skull crushing heavy sound and raging live show to get the stoners and the crusty punks headbanging together! THE GREAT SABATINI is another Montreal band that will deliver an aggressive mixture of noise rock, doom, hardcore, and metal wrapped up in a burly sludge aesthetic. HARM’S WAY is hardcore with serious metal and industrial influences. Their takes on the heavy breakdowns are both classic and modern – the band will be an interesting discovery for some and a must-see for those who know them!
Rounding out the new announcements is the addition of the 2019 SUMMER SLAUGHTER TOUR! Keep your eyes peeled as their lineup will be announced soon!
