Berserker revels in everything your parents cautioned you against: speed metal, death metal, black metal, metal metal, thrash metal, stoner metal, and a bit of hardcore punk as well. The two cannot-miss highlights will of course be the sets from Voivod and Antiseen. There are other great performers as well, from Conan and Ghoul to Macabre and Die Choking. The fest is put on by Veronica Knight, who runs Apparatus Booking, and her husband, Shawn Knight, the singer for Child Bite. Folks are traveling from afar to lose their hearing at this event. Miss any of this at your absolute peril.
