Last weekend kicked off the annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival. For the 18th year, the festival continued to bring a solid lineup of heavy metal and hardcore bands to two stages at the Palladium in Worcester, MA. Throughout the weekend NEMHF made sure to keep fans connected to the event by adding Snapchat to their collection of @moshfest social media handles to share behind the scenes footage and updates.
The intimate upstairs stage featured bands such as Foundations and The Days Ahead, winners of the Breakthru Music: Metal Fest Series earlier this month, along with crowd favorites Left Behind, On Broken Wings and Great American Ghost. As the crowd continued to grow throughout the early evening, the main stage featured bands such as Oceano, Merauder, Fallujah and Madball. Local favorites Bury Your Dead put on a phenomenal set just before headliner The Black Dahlia Murder hit the stage to close out a great first day of the festival.
