Another year, another Summer Slaughter! Always a highlight for me. Summer Slaughter promises brutal music, fun performances, and new discoveries, while the events themselves never disappoint for tattoo watching and band shirt spotting. This was the 10th Anniversary so of course it was going to be amazing. Right? Well... it was not the best year ever but still a successful night.

Hellfest 2016!

Hellfest: Clisson, France, 17/18/19 June 2016

So, after 2014, 2015 saw no MetalStorm delegation at its gates. But 2016 and this eleventh Hellfest edition had me coming back to the rain-soaked lands of Clisson Rock City. Yet, as I was the sole MS staff member there, I had to enlist a friend for this report... So, please welcome Ben (with whom I did a few radio shows back in the day - that is, about ten years ago)!

Note: want to see some of the shows? As always, Arte posted a whooping third of them all, but beware! The full shows are only streamed for about six months (well, five at the time of this article's posting), so be sure to check 'em before it's too late!
