The Black Dahlia Murder vocalist Trevor Strnad adds: "We are truly honored to be considered for the lineup of the first ever Orion festival. Metallica is one of the band's biggest influences... to say we are excited would be a major understatement. We will do our best to crush Atlantic City in their honor... Hails!"
Orion Music and More will feature 30+ acts across four stages with Metallica headlining both nights. They will play 'Ride The Lightning' in its entirety on Saturday and 'The Black Album' on Sunday to commemorate that album's 20th anniversary.
There are also events scheduled that are tied to the personal passions of each member of Metallica, including a Custom Car and Motorcycle show, Billabong All Out Air Assault Surfing Expedition, Ktulu's Rock 'N' Roll Emporium, and more. There's truly something for everyone: Metal, indie, punk, alternative, and comedy acts.
The Black Dahlia Murder make two UK festival appearances before the ends of the year. Catch them on June 30th at Leeds Ghostfest and August 10th at Bloodstock.
