Monster Energy's Welcome to Rockville Interviews - The Charm The Fury, Kyng, & Fire From The Gods - Metal Master Kingdom
By far I can write about this experience for days. Between the music, the experience, the crowd and the people that make it all worthwhile; Rockville may very well be the Mecca for Metal in the Southeastern United States. Some of my favourite performances, for me, besides the artists I mentioned above included: Bring Me the Horizon, Cypress Hill, Miss May I, Parkway Drive, Pennywise, Memphis Mayfire and We Came as Romans.
After this year's Welcome to Rockville event, I can't wait to see what they have in the works for next year!!
