For the first time Wolves in the Throne Room will perform all of their U.S. black metal masterpiece Two Hunters, Nuclear Assault will thrash through their 1986 undisputed classic Game Over in full, and reawakened death metal/grindcore/hardcore whirlwind The Red Chord will demolish with their masterwork Clients from start to finish.
The already stacked artist bill, presented by Metal Blade Records, is rounded out by: Canadian progressive metal icons Voivod ; vicious deathgrind crushers Full of Hell ; revolutionary Philly hardcore heroes Soul Glo ; metallic hardcore monolith All Else Failed ; Pittsburgh old-school death/doom dealers Derkéta ; British black/thrash battalion Craven Idol ; tortuous death metal crew Sanguisugabogg ; post-black metal new jacks The Silver; and resurrected death metal cult favorites Deathevokation .
