Western Canada’s Decimate Metal Fest Announces 2022
w/ Planet Eater, Arrival of Autumn, Snakepit, Caveat, Quietus and more!
June 24-25 – High River, AB
Western Canada’s Decimate Metal Fest will be hosting its two-day open-air extreme live music event on June 24th and 25th in High River, AB (45 minutes south of Calgary) on the outdoor grounds of the High River Brewing Company.
The 3rd edition of Decimate Metal Fest presented by Voxx Entertainment will witness the brute force of headliners Regina, SK loud shockers Planet Eater, and Grande Prairie, Alberta’s metalcore titans Arrival of Autumn lead the way for over 20+ acts of both local and traveling youth and adult musicians and bands performing this year. (full line up listed below with more to be announced). The 2022 festival will also be an all-ages event.
Planet Eater has been a staple source of extreme loud blasting from barren prairies, spreading their influence into Western Canada and beyond. The sound of Planet Eater is as unique as it is familiar, blending thrash and death metal with crushing grooves and devastating vocals. Fans who have yet to see them will be captivated by their live spectacle and the uncontrollable urges to eternally headbang.
Arrival of Autumn performs in support of their latest album “Harbringer” released in 2019 via Nuclear Blast. The band is a guitar-driven riff-heavy machine with fast double kick and vocal hooks to leave you humming our songs all day. Although they play fast they aren’t afraid to slow it down with beautiful atmospheric passages to add a much-needed dynamic that is missing from a lot of music today. Arrival Of Autumn is very dynamic and versatile able to please anyone from a rock fan to even the most hardcore death metal fans. They choose not to limit themselves, which allows them to be so accessible.

Decimate MetalFest is the brainchild of Sloan Voxx of Voxx Promotions, which is destined to become an annual Canadian metal pilgrimage to Alberta, Canada. With the many yearly festivals becoming part of the national metal heritage, Sloan wants Decimate MetalFest to become one of the best-known events alongside the various festivals located within Alberta, and Western Canada. With Voxx Promos booking and promotional experience, and the support of metalheads internationally, there is nothing to stop them from reaching their goal of bringing in the masses and putting on incredible metal festivals for years to come!” (writing credits: Sloan Voxx & Ingrid Newton)
