Alcatraz Line up: 2009, 2012, 2017
The uncrowned kings of thrash metal return once more to our festival, on the heals of their new critically acclaimed “The Brotherhood of the Snake” album, and what a pleasure it will be again! We all know the reputation of this indestructible band from the San Francisco Bay Area. Rest assured they will blast the roof off the Prison Stage on that hot summer day in August. With “The Chief” better known as Chuck Billy, one of the genre’s greatest frontmen ever, with his brutal and powerful singing. Backed by guitar virtuoso Alex Skolnick and his magical leads, paired with Eric Peterson’s crunching rhythm guitar. With a drummer nick named “The Atomic Clock”, and for good reason. Gene Hoglan’s fast feet and infamous drumming style have ruled the metal world. Along side bass player Steve DiGiorgio, who in our honest opinion is one of the best on the planet, if not the best! This all star band is ready to take you “Into the Pit” Alcatraz!
