When rabid priests and axe-wielding nuns chase the congregation through the old abbey halls, the time is upon us for Roots of Religious Terror in Metal! Grab your neighbor’s hand and prepare for an hour of bloodthirsty religious power run amok with Black Sabbath, Death Angel, Mercyful Fate, Cannibal Corpse, Cradle of Filth, Ghost, and more… Say your prayers, and know your Roots!
