SHADOW WOODS METAL FEST, the Mid-Atlantic’s only open-air camping heavy metal gathering, is pleased to announce the complete and updated lineup for the 2018 festival, which runs from Thursday, September 13th through Saturday, September 15th in White Hall, MD at Camp Hidden Valley.
For the fourth year, the festival will host over 40 of the underground's leading bands, representing many genres and subgenres of heavy metal, folk, rock, experimental, and noise. "It was pretty clear from the positive feedback I received after the 2017 fest that festival goers did not want to see Shadow Woods end," said Mary Spiro, fest founder. "So without a venue or a confirmed lineup, I started quietly raising the funds to do a new fest via the contributions of past attendees. The lineup came together very quickly and I am extremely proud and excited to present these past favorites and new discoveries."
Over three days, the landscape of Camp Hidden Valley will come to life as over 40 bands play on three alternating stages with no overlapping sets. Thursday night will feature primarily acoustic, folk, and ritual noise. Los Angeles black-folk metal legends XASTHUR, Philadelphia's strange folk chamber group ON THE WATER, and upstate New York's curious GOBLIN HOVEL will all illuminate under the stars. On Friday, South Carolina death-folk battlemasters AETHER REALM will invoke heavy metal fury under a moonlit sky, Boston's ROZAMOV will pummel with their grueling doom and, Philly's HEAVY TEMPLE will deliver psychedelic doom rock. Saturday, Washington legion ABIGAIL WILLIAMS will bring atmospheric black metal fury and post-black metal giants GHOST BATH will bellow through the trees. Gritty blackened metal army WOLVHAMMER, Atlanta black-and-roll outfit CLOAK, New Jersey mind-bending death metal trio REPLICANT, and Virginia black metal trio VOARM will all deliver darkness over the festival.
SHADOW WOODS METAL FEST IV returns to the magical landscape of Camp Hidden Valley for the fourth year. "We are returning home to a familiar place where the fest was born and to the forests and fields that our friends of Shadow Woods all love" explains Spiro. Art and craft vendors, food, workshops, yoga, and more will all highlight the weekend.
