What a name. What a line-up.

This is one of the best looking shows I’ve seen in a long time. I’ve never even heard of United Blood Fest until just recently. However, it’s been an annual thing for a couple of years now, which makes me wish I’d heard of it sooner. There are some serious heavyweights in this line-up, such as Cruel Hand, TUI, Down To Nothing, Power Trip, Soul Search, Bane, and many more. More info and tickets can be found on their website.

The show is over a two day stretch, March 29th and 30th, so it’s still more than a month away, leaving enough time to plan. It’s in Richmond, VA, which is unfortunately about a 6 hour drive from the Wheeling, WV area. There’s no way it can be anything other than spectacular, and judging from YouTube clips of previous years, it won’t disappoint.
For example:

Respect to VA for having a bad ass crowd.

I hope to somehow make it out. But if not, there’s always next year. \m/


Whatever your plans are for April 23rd, you should drop them and come to this show. It’s at the Community Center in Lansing, OH, about 15 minutes from Wheeling. I know it’s more than two months away, but if the lineup holds, this will be one hell of a show. It’s $10 at the door, and there will be tons of merch, no doubt. There is no flyer currently available, but all the information is on the Facebook page.

I’m a fan of all of these bands, including the locals in Death Sentence. And I can tell you firsthand that Xibalba is awesome live. If you don’t believe me, watch their video for “Cold”. Raunchy as hell. \m/


Hellbent Fest is becoming an annual tradition in the area and this will for sure be the biggest one yet, featuring hardcore legends in Cro-Mags, along with some of the heaviest, nastiest bands to play in the Ohio Valley, such as Agitator and Full of Hell. This event has a Facebook page and pre-sale tickets are available at Big Cartel, which I believe is the safest route to get your ticket because this show might sell out.

This show is a good opportunity to get out, support hardcore music, and have one hell of a time. Hellbent Fest has yet to disappoint me in it’s first two years and I’m sure the third will be no different. In fact, I think this show will only grow from here, so it’s really cool that it is not too far from the local area. It’s in Lansing, OH which is only about 15 minutes from Wheeling.

I hope to see some new faces show up for the Fest. And please show support by sharing, posting, forwarding, printing fliers or whatever you like to do. Let’s make it big! \m/.
