DMF organizer Sloan Voxx of Voxx Promos comments:

“Voxx Promos  is excited to be embarking on this adventure of starting our very own Metal Festival! We’ve been very fortunate to have worked with so many incredible people and bands over the years and we value them so much. What better way to spend a weekend than to bring them all together for 4 nights nights of epic music and entertainment! We have a great team on board and we can’t wait to get this fest off the ground with the help of seasoned and up-an-coming metal bands of all kinds! Let’s do this! DECIMATE!”

Decimate MetalFest is the brainchild of Sloan Voxx of Voxx Promotions, which is destined to become an annual Canadian metal pilgrimage to Calgary, Alberta, Canada. With the many yearly festivals becoming part of the national metal heritage, Sloan wants Decimate MetalFest to become one of the best-known events alongside the various festivals located within Alberta, and Western Canada. With Voxx Promos booking and promotional experience, and the support of metalheads internationally, there is nothing to stop them from reaching their goal of bringing in the masses and putting on incredible metal festivals for years to come!"

Voxx Promos was the head promoter for Canada's Extreme Metal Radio's CEMR Metalfest in 2017 ( ), which showcased a killer line up of Western Canada's up and coming metal bands such as Terrifier, Planet Eater, Display of Decay, W.M.D, Vile Insignia, Path to Extinction, Tessitura, Anarcheon, Kelevra, Train Bigger Monkeys, Ye Goat-Herd Gods, Detherous, Juliet Ruin, Augurium, Anti-Pattern, Forsaken Rite, Graveyard Nemesis and Benevolent Like Quietus.
