My shitty joke of a metal band used to play at The Webster Underground. That place sucks donkey balls.

anonymous 12/18/2013 3:44:21 PM

rest of the line up is shocked on Emmure.

Snoopy2 12/18/2013 7:51:37 PM

WTF @ Scars of Tomorrow Looks like real hardcore kids don't get day jobs after all, even after six years

anonymous 12/19/2013 4:26:18 AM

worst NEMHF lineup ive ever seen. scott lees beard must smell too bad for all the good bands to wanna work with him.

anonymous 12/19/2013 11:54:39 AM

I agree ^^^ This is the worst fcking lineup in years. Scott Lee has no idea what he is doing anymore and should have passed the reins years ago.

anonymous 12/19/2013 11:57:14 AM

Boycott Scott Lee

anonymous 12/19/2013 12:00:46 PM

Emmure is the best hardcore band on this lineup

anonymous 12/19/2013 12:01:25 PM


anonymous 12/19/2013 12:27:10 PM

U rnt hrd if u aint in da pit fo EMMURE

anonymous 12/19/2013 12:28:15 PM

If you guys aren't a fan of the line up then you all should just go cry to your mama and watch Paulie Shore in bio dome.

anonymous 12/19/2013 12:33:24 PM

Scott Does a great job putting this on every year. He does more for the New England Metal and Hardcore scene than any promoter ever has. Y'all should shut up.

anonymous 12/19/2013 2:59:57 PM

I've played this thing a couple of times and Scott doesn't do a great job putting it on. It sucks to play and this lineup is the worst I've ever seen, and I thought the last couple of years were bad.

anonymous 12/20/2013 7:36:33 AM

Frankie Palmeri is shocked at how bad the lineup is..............get it shocked??????????????????? ?????????????????????????? ?????????????????????????? ?? anyways shitty lineup. will not be attending. Think about all the other great things you can buy with that $40 a ticket is...gas, 40 mcdoubles, 40 $1 scratch tickets, strippers, 20 $2 scratch tickets, 5 $1 ones and 3 $5 ones, etc

Snoopy2 12/20/2013 3:40:25 PM

Why stop at Barrier? Get Drowning, Sworn In, and Warhound on this too. Chicago suburbs are fcking stoked.
