New England Metal & Hardcore Festival lineup announced

No, the big guns of MassMetal aren't on board -- no Killswitch Engage, no Shadows Fall, no Unearth -- but the 8th annual NEMHF, at the Palladium in Worcester April 28-30, has all the stuff we've come to expect: US debut of some weird Europowermetal we haven't heard of yet, old hardcore bands (or new hardcore bands that sound just like the old hardcore bands), plenty of deathy metalcore for the kids, and at least one band we thought we'd never see again yanked from our garage-thrash days. Tickets go on sale Friday. Confirmed thus far, from the press release:
