A major festival announcement just hit today. Canada is keeping up the intensity with this year’s edition of the famed Heavy Montreal festival. It offers a wide variety of artists from the more commercial end to just pure metal. Some notables include the reformation of Despised Icon, Mastodon, Blind Guardian, Animals As Leaders, Carcass, Suffocation, and so on. At the top of the bill, you have names such as Five Finger Death Punch, Disturbed, and Nightwish leading the charge. Should be good times all around for a good variety of people.
