Six Feet Under leads the pack, tongue firmly in cheek as it grinds your brains out. The '80s stars of Metal Church return for the second time this year, albeit with a mere two members of their classic lineup. Two displaced frontmen have starring roles: Buckcherry (yes, that Buckcherry) yowler Josh Todd and Anthrax's Joey Belladonna, with a set of solo material and thrash favorites. N.Y.C. vets Pro-Pain and rap-metal cult faves Wolfpac round out the big names, followed by a legion of local and regional acts (we stopped counting at 31). The organizers get props for doing something to put Cleveland on the map, but shows like this won't get us to the playoffs.
