MASS DESTRUCTION METAL FEST III: Atlanta Extreme Metal Gathering Featuring Nile, Sigh, Demolition Hammer, Terrorizer, And More Draws Near; Valdrin And Morta Skuld Added To Lineup + Tickets On Sale Now

In just four short weeks, the third installment of MASS DESTRUCTION METAL FEST will infiltrate Atlanta, Georgia! Set to take place November 1st and 2nd at The Loft at Center Stage, the annual two-day, single-stage, all-ages event, will play host to some of extreme metal’s finest including Nile, Sigh, Demolition Hammer, Terrorizer, Deceased, and Nunslaughter as well as recent additions: Cincinnati black metal legion Valdrin and Milwaukee death metal veterans Morta Skuld, who take the place of Thantifaxath and Ares Kingdom. See the full lineup below.

Launched by Atlanta metalhead Cody Martin in 2016 and established in 2017 with the help of local Atlanta promoter Amos Rifkin (A Rippin Production), MASS DESTRUCTION METAL FEST is a festival created for fans by fans, its previous lineups featuring some of underground metal’s most coveted acts including Demoncy, Macabre, Nocturnus AD, Morbosidad, Sadistic Intent, and more.

Comments Martin, “”As is the case with several bands we’ve booked over the years, I’ve never seen Sigh, so naturally I’m excited to cross them off my personal list! I was so stoked to see their visa approval. From the onset, our goal has been to bring all these great bands to our backyard for fans who can’t travel the world for festivals and it’s really starting to feel like we’re achieving that goal.”

Adds Rifkin, “Valdrin have always been one of those bands that people love, but rarely get to see. We’re excited to finally bring them to Atlanta for the first time, as is the case with many bands on our lineups. Morta Skuld are mainstays of the underground and a death metal force that I’m ready to get punched in the face by. I’m also looking forward to digging through all the albums in this year’s Metal Market; there’s always gems to be found and the wall of t-shirts is always a drool-fest to behold.”

The Loft at Center Stage, located in midtown Atlanta, is a seven-hundred capacity venue conveniently located near lodging and public transportation. In addition to a crushing lineup, the fest will include a special merch room featuring tables from a host of reputable heavy metal festival vendors. Interested in vending at this year’s event? Email
