Official press release:

Worcester, Massachusetts-based concert promotions company, MassConcerts, is pleased to announce the fourth and final segment of bands playing the seventeenth annual New England Metal & Hardcore Festival at The Palladium in Worcester, MA on April 17th, 18th, & 19th 2015.

As we approach the final lineup, each addition gets more and more exciting. For the fourth and final segment announce (there will be a few more bands added sporadically due to specific announce date rule) and when we thought the Friday lineup couldn't get any better we see the addition of esteemed metal outfit, Cavalera Conspiracy to take the stage. But wait, it's still getting crazy over here with the addition of Corrosion of Conformity featuring Reed Mullin and Karl Agell performing songs from the 1991 classic "Blind" album. Yes, you read that right!

Last but not least, Hatebreed frontman, Jamey Jasta will be gracing the stage with his solo project, Jasta.

Saturday is already killer and only gets more stacked with the addition of legendary death metal icons, Incantation.

For Sunday, the addition of hometown favorite, Vanna adds some excitement along with upcoming European hardcore band, Nasty and Detroit's own tech metal gurus, Gift Giver.

Scott Lee, talent buyer and festival co-creator states: "I am honored to have the legendary Cavalera brothers as part of this year's festival. There's really not much more I can say about that, they are musicians I have admired for many years. I also couldn't be more proud to have Corrosion of Conformity and of course my long time and great friend Jamey Jasta joining the lineup."
