There’ll be something for everyone who enjoys heavy metal music at Metal Feast 6, which takes place this coming weekend.

Sixteen groups will are scheduled to perform at the Feast, and promoter Mark Howitt said audiences can expect to hear all kinds of metal.

As the owner and manager of Archaic North Entertainment and the vocalist for Wolven Ancestry, hosting Metal Feasts is part of what Howitt does to continue bringing quality metal shows to Greater Sudbury.

“Sudbury’s metal scene is very together and solid,” he said. “It’s good to see a community like that in Sudbury.”

Beyond Within is one of the local bands taking the stage.

The group has been together for roughly nine years, but lineup changes have kept them from performing as often as they’d like. They are now ready for their third Metal Feast performance though.

“We’ve got some new material we’re itching to try out live,” Chris Finlay, the band’s guitarist, stated in an e-mail to Northern Life. “We’re looking to step back into things after a long spell of downtime.”

Finlay said Metal Feast’s are always an enjoyable experience for the group as both performers and metal fans.

“I like playing it because it gives us a chance to share the stage with some of our favourite bands, as well as have a lot of fun watching the other bands.”

Metal Feast 6 takes place March 11 and 12 at the Serbian Centre, located at 231 Bloor St. Weekend passes can be purchased from Rock Topic and Records on Wheels for $30, and day passes can be purchased at the door for $20 per day.

The all-ages festival includes a licenced bar away from the main stage area.
