Unleash the beer-thirsty! On June 10-11, 2022, Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest: Philly — the world’s loudest, two-day craft beer event — comes back to the Fillmore Philly for its latest and greatest sud-soaked execution!
Death metal kings CANNIBAL CORPSE triumphantly return to Philadelphia, leading an unforgettable weekend that includes a Friday night headlining set from Swedish doom legends CANDLEMASS. The epic-doom originators will perform their landmark debut “Epicus Doomicus Metallicus” for the first time ever in its entirety in America, with “Epicus” vocalist Johan Längquist.
That’s just one of four exclusive Metal & Beer Fest full-album sets! 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.
But wait, Metal & Beer Fest is not finished! Metal & Beer Fest has got the weekend’s cauldron of hops totally covered via America’s most metal breweries!
