Alberta, Canada's LOUD AS HELL is ready to unveil its most stacked lineup to date with its 2023 edition featuring JUNGLE ROT, NARCOTIC WASTELAND, INCITE, NECRONOMICON, THE CONVALESCENCE, ARRIVAL OF AUTUMN and lots more (full lineup listed below).

Being held from August 4th to 6th at the Dinosaur Downs Stampede Grounds in Drumheller, AB, this year's festivities see the return of American and Mexican bands joining the lineup along with artists from across Canada performing for the three-day open-air event.

Highlights for this year's lineup witness the return of groovy death metal Americans JUNGLE ROT to Canadian soil to headline the closing night on August 6th in support of their latest album A Call to Arms, released last year on Unique Leader Records.

Toledo, OH's THE CONVALESCENCE is one of the USA's unstoppable tour de force, touring Europe in 2022 with CHELSEA GRIN and CARNIFEX plus an upcoming tour in Japan in 2023 with EXHUMED and DEFILED along with their latest single "No Survivors" ft. Scott Ian Lewis of CARNIFEX that has fans demanding more and more.

North Carolina's NARCOTIC WASTELAND's (founded by ex-NILE guitarist Dallas Toler-Wade) festival appearance comes as part of the band's first cross-Canada tour as they will be supporting their forthcoming third studio album in 2023 on Mega Force Records.

Phoenix, AZ's INCITE, now close to 20 years into a career where everything was earned and nothing was taken for granted, the band bridges the gap between multiple crowds across various metal sub-genres. As renegade disciples of trailblazing architects like PANTERA, SLAYER, SEPULTURA, and MACHINE HEAD, INCITE raise the torch for trend-killing and hipster-smashing metal. The band’s fifth album, Built To Destroy released in 2019 (Minus Head Records), is a visceral, urgent, voracious distillation of modern metal, with reverence for the past, produced by Steve Evetts (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, SUICIDE SILENCE) and mastered by Zeuss (ROB ZOMBIE, HATEBREED).

One of Canada's longest-running blackened death metal bands hailing from Montreal, Quebec, NECRONOMICON's career spans over 30 years since it was first formed in 1988 by founding guitarist and singer Rob “The Witch” in the deep, northern part of Quebec's Fjord of Saguenay. Since then, the band has carefully released each full-length without haste, allowing them to perfect every nuance before unleashing their sonic assaults upon the masses.

Canadian metalcore titans, ARRIVAL OF AUTUMN, hailing from Grande Prairie, AB, are LOUD AS HELL alumni and return to co-headline opening night on August 4th in support of their new album Kingdom Undone being released on Nuclear Blast this coming May.

Weekend Passes (including camping) are available at https://www.loudashell.ca/tickets
