Who To See At Heavy Montreal 2014

The 2014 edition of Heavy Montreal is chock full of talent; see who we think you shouldn't miss this weekend.

When the lineup for Heavy Montreal was announced, metal fans rejoiced. With two days full of some of the most legendary names in heavy metal as well as some up and coming contenders, we’ve made a list of our top 10 bands you can’t miss this weekend.


Unlocking The Truth

There are a bunch of bands performing this weekend who’ve been around longer than band members of Unlocking the Truth have been alive. Don’t let that deter you from catching this up and coming band from New York.

Where: Scène de la Forêt
When: Saturday 3:15 - 3:45pm


Three Days Grace

Towards the start of this year, Three Days Grace confirmed that Matt Walst was officially their new singer and that they were currently working on new music together. Who knows, maybe we’ll get a taste of their new stuff.

Where: Scène Heavy
When: Saturday 4:00 - 4:45pm



Earlier this year, Epica released their 6th studio album, The Quantum Enigma, and if their performance is anything like it was the last time we saw them, fans are in for a hell of a set.

Where: Scène Heavy
When: Sunday 3:00 - 3:45pm



Apocalyptica is a band that isn’t shy about working with other artists; who knows, maybe fans in Montreal will be surprised with a special live guest performance.

Where: Scène Molson Canadian
When: Saturday 3:15-4:00pm


Bad Religion

They’ve just kicked off their Summer Nationals tour alongside The Offspring and Pennywise and luckily enough for us, Bad Religion managed to squeeze in a spot for Heavy Montreal.

Where: Scène Heavy
When: Sunday 6:00 - 7:00pm


The Offspring

While they may not be as metal as the rest of the bands on the bill, there’s a reason, The Offspring made the lineup. Check out their set to see why.

Where: Scène Heavy
When: Saturday 7:15 - 8:15pm


Lamb of God

Back in 2012, Lamb of God was scheduled to play Heavy Montreal, however unfortunately, they had to cancel their appearance. Luckily for us, they’ll be ready to rock this year.

Where: Scène Heavy
When: Sunday 8:00 - 9:15pm



With 10 albums under their belts and a career that dates back to 1981, Anthrax are no strangers to Heavy Montreal. Playing its inaugural event in 2008, they also rocked out at the festival in 2011.

Where: Scène Molson Canadian
When: Saturday 6:15 - 7:15pm



Anthrax and Metallica have already made our list, so it’s only right to include another legendary band, Slayer. We couldn’t think of a better band to close out Heavy Montreal on Sunday night.

Where: Scène Molson Canadian
When: Sunday 9:15 - 10:45pm



What can we say about Metallica? These legends will be playing a setlist chosen entirely by their fans. Their performance will be the perfect ending to an action packed Saturday night at Heavy MTL.
