This Is Hardcore Fest 2014 ripped into Day 3 at Philly’s iconic Electric Factory venue and grounds with another stellar line-up of sought after hardcore as Freedom, Old Habits, Full Of Hell, Hounds Of Hate, Greg Of Trial, Die Young, Heavy Chains, Coke Bust, Mindset, Alpha & Omega, and Cruel Hand slayed the stage. Still to come are heavyweights Rotting Out, Culture, Death Threat, Wisdom In Chains, Nails, 100 Demons, Bold, CIV, Cold World, Blacklisted, and Title Fight.
For the second year now, members of Philly’s SCA came in full battle regalia and proceeded to battle in pairs yielding swords, armor, and shields. These warlocks (including TIH founder Joe Hardcore McKay) allowed a volunteer from the crowd enter the battle this year. Scope the pictures below for all of the action..
Blow The Scene‘s Dante Torrieri and Joshua Cohen will continue to hold down the candid, crowd, and photo booth shots as Anne Spina gathers her massive collection of band shots from the stage. Our official band galleries will be posted separately following the conclusion of TIH as we did in years past.
