Las Vegas Death Fest puts you to the test

Are you a poseur?

This is an important question this time of year.


Because the Las Vegas Death Fest is upon us once again and your well-being may very well depend upon answering correctly.

Now in its fourth year, the LVDF is three days of metal at its most extreme and unrelenting, beginning tonight at the Cheyenne Saloon.

One of the best, most brutal events of its kind annually, the LVDF is not for the faint of the heart – or stomach.

Pretenders, beware.

This year’s lineup is the fest’s strongest yet, with influential San Diego scene vets Disgorge, Bay Area tech-death brutes Severed Savior, Norwegian slam sickos Krannium, coed Swiss ragers Carnal Decay and dozens more.

Expect a run on Pepto-Bismol and neck braces in the LVDF’s wake.

Think you can handle it all?

In order to determine as much, we’ve compiled a list of band names, some real, some fake, with the genuine articles performing at LVDF this go-round.

Get ’em right and you obviously have what it takes to make it through this marathon of blast beats, vomited vocals and meat-cleaver riffs.

Get ’em wrong and, well, maybe that Nickelback gig at the MGM Grand on Saturday is more your speed.
