The organizers of the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival are making plans to expand next year's event to a three-day metal and hardcore extravaganza, BLABBERMOUTH.NET can exclusively reveal.

Cementing its reputation as the best underground metal festival in North America, the 2005 edition of the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival looks to be even more impressive than it has been in recent years, with the likes of CRYPTOPSY, NIGHTWISH, BEHEMOTH, KING DIAMOND, NILE and THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER having already signed on for the event, which will be held Friday-Sunday, April 22-24, 2005 at The Palladium in Worcester. More confirmations are expected to be leaked/announced during the coming months.
