BRUTALITY WILL PREVAIL
They are joined by French progressive metallers BETRAYING THE MARTYRS and UK tech-metal pioneers MONUMENTS, who will bring their mind-bending technicality and relentless riffs to the Ghostfest pit.
Completing the new additions we have hardcore mob DEAD HARTS, who have been somewhat of an underground phenomenon over the past year, packing out tiny venues nationwide. Finally Manchester's BROKEN TEETH are back and promise to bring the carnage and new comers SURVIVAL make their first appearance.
They join THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, TERROR, KNUCKLEDUST, THE ACACIA STRAIN, VEIL OF MAYA, I WRESTLED A BEAR ONCE, BURY YOUR DEAD, HARMSWAY, VANNA, ODESSA, MALEVOLENCE, CHRONOGRAPHS, TWITCHING TOUNGES, BREAKING POINT, AZRIEL, MIND X CONTROL, GRADER and DEPARTURES.
Stay tuned for more band announcements!
