DAY TWO JUNE 6TH, 2013 – Monika Deviat

The second night of Calgary Metal Fest was held over two venues, Dicken’s Pub and Broken City. A shuttle service was provided between the two venues so that attendees could get over to the other venue quickly. This evening I made it over to the merch tables a few times to check out the giant CMF poster that all the bands were signing over the weekend.

Black Pestilence are always great showmen and musicians on stage. This evening the crowd enjoyed the unconventional mix of electronic samples and black metal.

Hammerdrone was absolutely intense, from the instrumentation to frontman Graham Harris’s towering presence and sneering expressions.

Terrorist metal band Villainizer closed off the evening and a lot of fans stayed out late to see them. The moment the band starts playing and frontman Rob the Arab Villain begins goading the audience, there’s non-stop mayhem from head banging and moshing in the pit.
