Canadian extreme music festival Loud as Hell will celebrate 10 years of roaring, decibel-breaking metal from July 29 to 31, 2022, at the Dinosaur Downs Stampede Grounds in Drumheller, Alberta.
Loud as Hell has hosted hundreds of Canadian and international bands annually since the first metal jamboree in 2012, with exception of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During its decade of showcasing Canadian and international bands to Alberta metal fans, the festival has grown into a pilgrimage for metalheads from across Canada. Past years have hosted headliners such as Into Eternity, Goatwhore, Battlecross, Fit for an Autopsy, Anciients, Archspire, Unleash the Archers, Striker, KEN mode, Obey the Brave and Protest the Hero.
The 2022 lineup features headliners AngelMaker, from Vancouver, bringing its guttural and brutal beauty to the LAH stage for the first time in support of its latest album, “Sanctum,” along with LAH alumni Neck of the Woods for the Sunday festivities. The lineup also includes the reunion of Montreal metalcore titans Endast, along with a rare appearance from Calgary’s prog squad Divinity, on Saturday. For the Friday opening night, the deathcore of Vancouver’s Carcosa and Calgary blackened death eaters Plaguebringer will set off the debauchery of extreme proportions.
Tickets are available www.loudashell.ca/tickets.
LAH will monitor guidelines and updates from Alberta’s provincial government for COVID protocols.
