Ilsa, Horrendous, Outer Heaven and More Announced For NYC’s Necrofest 2020
Last year’s Necrofest brought an insanely heavy two-day festival to New York City, with acts including Fistula, Noisem, and P.L.F. laying waste to Brooklyn’s famous Saint Vitus Bar. Now, the organizers have announced the details for Necrofest 2020, and it looks like the whole thing has just gotten bigger, meaner, and more drenched in unholy bodily fluids.
Necrofest 2020 will go down once more at Saint Vitus, from June 12 to June 14. Individual tickets for Friday and Saturday go for $30 presale and $35 at the door, while Sunday is a flat $20.
Here’s a full list of who’ll be playing:
Several of the bands playing at this year’s Necrofest made our list of the 50 greatest death metal bands right now, some even taking some coveted high spots (Horrendous at #6, Of Feather And Bone at #19). One band not to miss is Pennsylvania’s Outer Heaven, who came in at #20 and have been a powerful force of both sonic brutality and personal positivity in the death metal scene of late.
“Some people are happy to piece together a couple of riffs,” frontman Austin Haines told Kerrang! in 2018. “We really try to make every part count as much as we can. When we write, nobody’s afraid to speak out if a part isn’t hitting as hard as the rest of the song is.”
“We’re not too cool for any show, anywhere, anytime,” he added. “Honestly, we come from the Philadelphia area, which is a very DIY music scene. That’s what we came up doing back in the day, and that kind of ethic sticks with you.”
My Chemical Romance have announced the rescheduled dates for their long-awaited comeback tour.
