It's getting near! Live extreme music will return to Western Canada with the decibel-breaking metal festival LOUD AS HELL from July 30th to August 1st at the roaring Dinosaur Downs Stampede Grounds in Drumheller, AB. The 2021 line-up features an assortment of Western Canada's top-tier artists over three headbanging days that will include a special reunion performance from main headliners Into Eternity with former vocalist Stu Block joining the band on stage on Saturday, July 31st. Block commented on his Facebook page: “I’m sure most of you have been speculating if I will be performing and recording again with Into Eternity. Well, I’m very pleased to announce that I will be performing with Into Eternity and sharing vocal duties with the absolutely amazing Amanda Kiernan at Loud As Hell Fest on July 31st. I am super excited to play with Tim, Amanda, Matt, Troy and Bryan! Such a talented group of amazing lovely humans! oh and!!! We will also be recording some new music together in the coming months! See you there!! #deathprogsquad #IntoEternity.” The opening night of July 30th for Loud As Hell will be headlined by Planet Eater and closed by Arrival of Autumn on Sunday, August 1st. This year's line-up is scaled down to only Canadian bands due to international artists being unable to perform in the country because of border restrictions and guidelines stated by the federal government for Covid pre-cautions. Loud As Hell organizer Geoff Bourrie comments: "We are overwhelmed with the positive response we have been getting for the festival this year. We are very proud to offer the platform to help kickstart the live metal scene here in Western Canada. This will be a special year for us coming back from such a challenging 2020. Loud As Hell lives! We are back! And we are ready!" Loud As Hell Line Up 2021

Like many music events across Canada, Loud As Hell's 2020 production was forced to cancel due to the COVID pandemic. It was scheduled to be their 9th consecutive concert since the first metal jamboree in 2012. Over the years, the festival has hosted hundreds of Canadian and international bands in the prairie badlands. The 2019 edition of Loud As Hell sold out and melted faces off of metalheads who assembled from across the country for its 40 band line-up, which featured Goatwhore, Anciients, Planet Eater, Untimely Demise, Arrival of Autumn.
Loud As Hell event organizers were closely monitoring guidelines and updates from Alberta's provincial government. The most recent announcement from officials to fully open up the province as of July 1st as part of their Stage 3 planning that states the following:
Stage 3: Two weeks after 70% of Albertans 12+ (born in 2009 or earlier) have received at least one dose. Effective July 1st.
All restrictions lifted, including the ban on indoor social gatherings.
Isolation requirements for confirmed cases of COVID-19 and some protective measures in continuing care settings remain.
The general indoor provincial mask mandate will be lifted, but masking may still be required in limited and specific settings.
More information will be shared prior to the start of Stage 3.

What the press is saying:
"Western Canada's loudest heavy metal festival brings fans to town more known for dinos than drum solos." - CBC Calgary
"Loud as Hell – one of Canada’s top underground metal festivals – was a metal family reunion. If you walked around the grounds, where tents covered the landscape like flowers, you would experience concert goers laughing, hugging and just enjoying the moment. The music played non-stop and the people were some of the best you’ll meet. What else do you need? If you’re a metal head fan, mark it down for next year because this is a concert you don’t want to miss." - Blackfalds Life
