Join Bloody Roots host Ian Christe (“Sound of the Beast”, Bazillion Points Books) slices open the MDF 2013 schedule, analyzing the living metal history of festival favorites like Bolt Thrower, Down, Sleep, Repulsion, and Carcass; cheering the comebacks of the Obsessed, Broken Hope, Infest, and Righteous Pigs; and illuminating the choice selections like Midnight, Hellshock, Scandinavian hardcore pioneers Terveet Kadet and Massgrav, and French extremists Antaeus and Aosoth. Prep for the fest, or enjoy the noise from afar… and know your roots!
