- By Ramon Gonzales

See the complete roster of bands confirmed for the three-day event and get the details on the free pre-party for all ticket holders headlined by Jamey Jasta and Friends.

The extended rollout of the comprehensive Milwaukee Metal Fest line-up is now complete and the three-day congregation of extreme metal is destined to be one of the most important cultural events of the year. 

Headlined by the likes of Mr. Bungle, Blind Guardian and Slaughter to Prevail along with several special, exclusive sets like I Am Morbid's 35th Anniversary of 'Altars Of Madness' set, Death to All's Sound Of Perseverance and Scream Bloody Gore sets, as well as Soilent Green's reunion set, the scope of MMF is staggering. 

Helmed by Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta along with longtime metal agent Tim Borror, the festival, now in its second year, is set to bring back the glory days, making Milwaukee a destination among heavy music's most dedicated fanbase. 

Completing the line-up rollout that has been months in the making and an obvious, massive undertaking, organizers have confirmed the final round of bands, adding another 19 artists as well as confirming plans for a free-for ticketholders pre-party topped by Jamey Jasta himself.

Highlighting the latest round of bands set for Milwaukee Metal Fest include Municipal Waste, Autopsy performing a Severed Survival 35th anniversary set, Terrorizer performing a World Downfall 35th anniversary set, Macabre, Gatecreeper, Skeletal Remains, Upon Stone, Bewitcher and more. 

Additionally, Jamey Jasta and Friends will take over the Thursday night pre-gaming rager along with Bobby Blitz, Zetro, Bobby Hambel plus special guests Toxic Ruin and H1Z1. The vent is free for anyone that has a three-day pass to the Milwaukee Metal Fest. 

Speaking on the full presentation of Milwaukee Metal Fest, Jamey Jasta shared, "We’re beyond excited to welcome such a stellar crop of new additions to the fest; Autopsy played the third edition of MMF thirty five years ago, to have them back is truly special and you can’t have Milwaukee Metal Fest without Macabre! I speak for our entire MMF team that now is the time to start building up tomorrow’s headliners. Additions like Upon Stone, Lords Of The Trident, Stabbing, Monochromatic Black, etc. are all great examples of the talent & passion that is out there that some of us will get to see for the first time in Milwaukee”
