Alongside acts like Throwdown, Bury Your Dead, Terror and Sworn Enemy, Hatebreed paved the way for metal-inspired hardcore in the late-’90s, called metalcore by those in the know. Thanks to bruising tracks like “I Will Be Heard,” the band quickly became an unstoppable force in the genre. And if having Hatebreed heading to SA wasn’t enough, this eclectic bill also includes Obituary, Agnostic Front, Prong and Skeletal Remains — bands that run the gamut from death metal and to straight-up hardcore.
