Tour de Force



Everyone from Vince’s former home state of Michigan: MetalSucks is proud to now be co-sponsoring Dirt Fest 13, which will take place Saturday, July 11 at the Birch Run Expo Center in Birch Run, MI. The show will feature Necrophagist, Darkest Hour, Winds of Plague, Born of Osiris, Origin, and a whole bunch of awesome bands – PLUS 30 – 40 local bands, at least some of whom are bound to be finds. In other words: it promises to be a pretty kick-ass day.

And to sweeten the deal, the fest is teaming with Sick Drummer magazine for a “Sickest Dirt Fest Drummer” contest. Press release after the jump!

The contest, to be held at and, will give local performers widespread exposure and a chance to win a feature in the September 2009 issue of Sick Drummer Magazine, A set of the new Z3 Zildjian Cymbals, a set of Aquarian Drumheads and other prizes. Entrants must be drummers scheduled to perform at this year’s Dirt Fest, register online and upload a video of their performances by July 1, 2009. Voters are encouraged to vote online and at the Sick Drummer Magazine Booth at the event.
