Heavy MTL post-mortem

Heavy MTL’s fourth festival in five years turned Montreal up to 11 many times over the course of the weekend, with a significant heaping of major mainstream acts attracting a record number of concert-goers. Despite calls for bad weather and a rash of cancellations (Lamb of God, Dethklok, High on Fire), the festival was nothing if not well attended.

Heavy MTL fashion

For the second consecutive weekend, Parc Jean-Drapeau packed in tens of thousands of music fans, but this time, both the sounds and the styles were darker. And heavier. See how a couple dozen Montreal metal fans made paint, masks, chains, boots and black t-shirts work in the stormy summer heat.
