Heavy MTL 2012

Parc Jean Drapeau, Montreal, Quebec

August 11 and 12th

This year ventured to Parc Jean Drapeau in Montreal, Quebec for Heavy MTL 2012. The two day festival occurring over August 11 and 12th, was set up on the beautiful island park in the St Lawrence River. There were three stages running almost non-stop: the Heavy MTL and Jagermeister stages side by side and the Apocalypse stage set a bit further back in the park. This year it wasn’t the headliners that drew us to the festival (besides Voivod’s headlining set on Sunday night on the Apocalypse stage during the same time as Slipknot), but it was the bands a bit lower on the bill that had us attending the festival. A big draw was the fact that Heavy MTL assimilated the Summer Slaughter Tour and Kataklysm’s “The Iron Will Tour” into the weekend.
