The Scion Rock Fest will be unleashed once again on June 1, this time arriving in Memphis, Tennessee. This anual all-day free event has become a highly anticipated tradition that brings together both metal legends and newcomers in a different U.S. city each year.

Today we can announce a partial list of the over 30 acts who will be playing across multiple stages. The full list and RSVP information will be arriving next week.

Until then, here’s a preview of who will be there:

Municipal Waste
A Life Once Lost
Six Feet Under
The Casualties
Vision of Disorder
Code Orange Kids
Ice Dragon
The Shrine
Indian Handcrafts

Pretty meh lineup. Ice Dragon is probably the only band I'd like to see. I guess The Gates of Slumber and Witch Mountain (if they're not in Europe) are gonna join too, this will make the fest better.
Metantoine's Magickal Realm
Halberd (doom/death)

Meh there's very few bands on there I'd actually like to see, not really worth the drive or the cost of a hotel.

Couldn't Untappd also be an excellent name for an app that helps virgins locate virgins? Sort of like Grindr for the celibate? This has to have confused tons of people by now.

Well, at least Negative Approach, ALOL, The gates of slumber, and Impaled are playing!

Thing is, Suicide Silence actually are more sonically massive than a good 95% of all the death metal bands in the Archives! Not metal, sure, but definitely a lot more brutal.

Hell, I'd go JUST for Melvins. Last band to actually deafen me for days afterwards of the gig.

Well shit.

I wonder what kind of bearing this will have on the fest, considering this is one of the host venues.
