Today we have two albums to present to you, by two different bands. Two VERY different bands in fact; pretty much the only thing they have in common is the word “King” along with some kind of animal in their names. Also the fact that they each released a new album last month. Plus the fact that we deemed each of these albums good enough to write about and share with you.

But besides that, very dissimilar. Having said that, though — if you came here as a fan of one of these bands, why not step out of your comfort zone a bit and give the other a quick spin? You may be pleasantly surprised!

Shadow Woods Metal Fest IV (September 2018, White Hall MD)

 

Shadow Woods Metal Fest IV

Thursday 13 September through Saturday 15 September 2018

at Camp Hidden Valley, 4722 Mellow Rd, White Hall MD 21161

Weekend pass $130; single-day tickets $30-60 each; tent or cabin camping available for an additional charge.

 
Shadow Woods Metal Fest, the Mid-Atlantic’s only open-air camping heavy metal gathering, is back for a FOURTH year, featuring “over 40 of the underground’s leading bands, representing many genres and subgenres of heavy metal, folk, rock, experimental, and noise” on three alternating stages with no overlap.

After the fate of the festival was up in the air for a while following the sale of the summer camp that has been its home for the past few years, and (apparently) some issues ironing out details with a new venue, the folks at Shadow Woods are pleased to announce they will be returning once again to Camp Hidden Valley. Full line-up for the three-day fest can be found below.
