Nadine Swiger of the Musician Photo Journal has posted a mini-gallery of photos from the second day of the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, which is taking place April 25-27 at the Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts. Included are pictures of BEHEMOTH, SHADOWS FALL and DIMMU BORGIR, among others.

The 10th annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival began Friday, as Dave Mustaine's Gigantour partnered with the homegrown festival. According to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, the multi-band package created by the MEGADETH frontman was supposed to be in Worcester on another date, but all agreed it made sense to bring the metal together.

The festival then opens to longer programs on Saturday and Sunday, with two stages of action scheduled for each of those days. DIMMU BORGIR, SHADOWS FALL, BEHEMOTH, OVERKILL and THE ACACIA STRAIN are among the main stage draws on Saturday, while MUNICIPAL WASTE, SOILENT GREEN and DISFEAR stand out among the 14 acts on the smaller upstairs stage.

The main stage on Sunday features MINISTRY, MESHUGGAH, DIVINE HERESY, ENSIFERUM, VANNA and A LIFE ONCE LOST, while SHAI HULUD and FULL BLOWN CHAOS will be explosive cappers playing the small stage. Schedules for all three days are online at this location.
