One of the main draws to this year’s incarnation of Rabidfest is LestWeForget, a band who seamlessly blend Metalcore influences in Killswitch Engage and Trivium into Progressive Metal ones in Between The Buried And Me and TesseracT to create their own hybrid as the DNA intertwines. That alchemy sees the four piece performing songs with anthemic weight that are complex and interesting as well as being captivating and enthralling. Rhythmically powerful and yet delicately intricate with nuances that pop out of the mix like her ghost in the fog, the cascading vocals help bring it all together and the bands music speaks for itself. The off kilter riffs of the fan favourite “Zero Won“, with it’s 25k Spotify and YouTube streams combined a testament to their qualification to perform on the Rabidfest stage…

We’re proud to be a Media Partner of Rabidfest again this year alongside Red Death Media, Moomin Merchandise, Metalplanetmusic, Moshville Times, GraphicsFix, Unearthed Music and main stage sponsor Devolution Magazine. The Festival is all for charity and this year the profits going to the The Sophie Lancaster Foundation!
