Sepultura, Biohazard, Spineshank, Napalm Death, Earth Crisis, Meshuggah, and thousands of their closest friends will descend on Asbury Park, New Jersey next month for a two-day event being billed as the March Metal Meltdown. Enslaved, Grim Reaper, Blitzkrieg, Candiria, Puya, Gorguts, and about 100 other bands will head to Asbury Park's Paramount Theater and Convention Hall on March 12 and 13 for the festival.
The testosterone factor will be upped even further with a slate of professional wrestling that will see Scorpio take on "Fabulous Freebird" Michael P.S. Hayes and The Pitbulls will square off against Ace Darling and Devon Storm in something called an Asbury Park Street Fight. The Human Oddities' Giant Silva, the Heavenly Bodies' Dr. Tom Pritchard, "Latin Oragon" Julio Sanchez, "Super Bad" Steve Bradley, Jersey All Pro Champ Billy Real, Trent Acid, "King of the Death Match" Ian Rotten, and Billy Joe Eaton will also be adding to the mayhem.
As if that's not enough,
organizers have also locked in adult film stars Brittany O'Connell, Tera Heart, Micky Lynn, and Jasmin St. Claire (who will act as the show's MC) for the Meltdown.
