Taking over four summer nights from June 7th - 10th in Calgary, AB at Distortion Live Venue, DECIMATE MetalFest announces a line-up update for this year' 2018 event of brutality showcasing underground metal from across Western Canada and beyond.

DMF organizer Sloan Voxx of Voxx Promos comments:

"Voxx Promos is excited to be embarking on this adventure of starting our very own Metal Festival! We've been very fortunate to have worked with so many incredible people and bands over the years and we value them so much. What better way to spend a weekend than to bring them all together for 4 nights nights of epic music and entertainment! We have a great team on board and we can't wait to get this fest off the ground with the help of seasoned and up-an-coming metal bands of all kinds! Let's do this! DECIMATE!"
