The inaugural Metal Injection Festival is only one month away! To further spice up the festivities, Metal Injection will be hosting an official after party on the first night of performances! Featuring a rockin' set of heavy metal classics by DJ Painkiller Kim, the rager will take place on September 16 at The Constellation Room (The Observatory) and is FREE for all to attend for festival ticket holders!

The Metal Injection Festival will take over Orange County, CA from September 16-17 across two iconic venues - The Observatory and House of Blues Anaheim. The stacked and diverse lineup is a melting pot of genres, inclusive to both legendary bands as well as emerging and underground artists worth discovering. The full lineup is as follows:

ICYMI: Metal Injection recently shared a specially curated playlist to pump up fans ahead of this spectacular event! Featuring music from each band on the lineup, the playlists can now be heard via Apple Music and Spotify.

"I've always dreamed of having my own festival as a kid, I mean what metal head hasn't!?" Explains Metal Injection founder and company director Frank Godla. "I even wrote it down on a future goal plan for Metal Injection in the early days. When my Slay At Home virtual fest really took off during the pandemic, and reached communities in over 60 countries, it suddenly seemed possible, even overdue.

Today, I bring you the first ever Metal Injection Festival. Two days days of killer bands ranging from thrash, death, industrial, hardcore, and more from legendary names to the ones worth discovering. We'll also have some really sweet giveaways, a learning area for amazing causes I believe in, and special setlists including the legendary Max & Iggor Cavalera performing Morbid Visions and Bestial Devastation records in entirety, and Fear Factory celebrating their game changing Demanufacture and 25th anniversary of Obsolete with us!

Every new endeavor has to start somewhere, and I couldn't be more stoked to have this group of amazing bands be part of MI history!"

Sponsored by Metal Blade Records, Nuclear Blast, Century Media, Thunderflix and ESP Guitars, the face-melting program will also have a learning booth in support of two very important causes, MusiCares and Suicide Prevention. This initiative will help educate attendees on mental health awareness and related resources for fans and musicians in need.

That's not all! Courtesy of ESP Guitars, Metal Injection will be raffling off a pair of ESP axes signed by each headliner. Night one's guitar will be signed by Max Cavalera while night two's prize will be signed by Alex Skolnick.
