Pig Destroyer is a twisted grind band from the DMV area and they’re known for putting on intense shows! This show at the Rock & Roll Hotel is sure to be a blast in front of their home town crowd. And let’s not forget Deceased, one of the area’s oldest underground metal bands. They have been cranking out their metal of death with a strong focus on horror movies since the mid-80s. Also on the bill is “The Grindfather” Richard Johnson’s band Drugs Of Faith. When he isn’t screaming into the mic for Agoraphobic Nosebleed he leads DoF with their pioneering of the Grind ‘n Roll style. The opener is Cemetery Piss, a Baltimore based band that lies somewhere between crust, black metal and sludge. This is one hell of a line up that is much more than your average “locals” show! Now check out these awesome videos of the bands playing below and leave a comment telling me what your favorite metal album of 2016 has been!

Pig Destroyer – The Diplomat

Deceased – It’s Alive

Drugs Of Faith – Insanity

Cemetery Piss – Rest In Piss


  1. oh dope giveaway! man, the best of 2016 seemed to come in later. The new antaeus is absolutely beastly, but as hipster as it sounds, the new Deathspell Omega had me reeling by the end, just absolute madness.

  2. My favorite metal album of 2016? Dang it’s a tie honestly between new Candiria While They Were Sleeping and new Anaal Nathrakh Whole of the Law . Both eagerly anticipated and didn’t let me down

  3. The debut ‘Abbath’ record… Shit. Fucking. Rips.

  4. Inter Arma – Paradise Gallows

    Stoked for this show – thanks!

  5. Hordes of Armageddon by Terrör Striker

  6. Beldam-Still The Wretched Linger

  7. Whispered – Metsutan: Songs of the Void

  8. Tough call on the best metal album. One that I’ve been really digging lately is
    Striker – Stand in the Fire

  9. Apology by Weekend Nachos.

  10. Sumac – What One Becomes

  11. For me best metal album of 2016 (that ive heard) is either Agoraphobic Nosebleed’s Arc or Crowbar’s The Serpent Only Lies.

  12. NOFX – Last Ditch Effort

    • Errr….I guess NOFX is “punk”. Metal would be Blood Incantation – Starspawn

  13. Cobalt – Slow Forever, or SubRosa – For This We Fought the Battle of the Ages

  14. Two negative comments from the same “anonymous” person? Get outta here Pittsburgh and go pout somewhere else.

  15. The new Ulcerate- Shrines Of Paralysis is definitely my favorite

  16. Dungeon Bastards by Ghoul with the world’s most extreme board game.


  18. Dark Tranquillity – Atoma
    A lot of stiff competition this year but these guys are (in my opinion) forever underrated and continue to outlast everyone around them in terms of musical growth and sustained output.

  19. Abuse to Suffer by Rotten Sound

  20. Vektor – Terminal Redux

  21. Awesome giveaway. Love Pig Destroyer. Best album of 2016 has to be Meshuggah

  22. Shit. It’s a toss-up between Abbath’s solo debut and The serpent Only Lies from Crowbar. I’m leaning towards Crowbar though.

  23. The Violent Sleep of Reason by Meshuggah. I love their industrial sound, easily one of my top 5 favorite bands.

  24. Im only in DC until monday and then I go back home to England so this would be awesome…..for me this year got be Serenity of Sufferig by Korn….good to see them going back to a bit of old skool Korn.

  25. True Widow’s Avvolgere

  26. NAILS
    “You will never be one of us”

  27. My favorite album from 2016 so far has got to be Arctic Thunder by Darkthrone. Talk about a return to form, it’s absolutely crushing and delivers on every front I’d expect and more from Darkthrone.

  28. Oh man, it’s a toss up.

    Cough – Still they Prey
    Sewercide – Immortalized in Sufffering

    • Cough – Still they Pray

  29. NAILS-You Will Never Be One Of Us or Red Fang- Only Ghosts

  30. Gojira’s Magma.

    I really like Gojira, despite the fact that I passed out (it was really, really hot and crowded) and nearly got trampled to death at one of their shows.

  31. Vector – Terminal Redux

  32. Tough call as I loved Cough and Inter Arma’s new ones but I do think Ulcerate’s Shrines of Paralysis might be the best!

  33. Abbath

  34. Meshuggah-The violent sleep of reason

  35. Gonna have to go with Voivod – Post Society

  36. DevilDriver — Trust No One was one I thought was killer. What was even more killer was seeing them live (for the 3rd or 4th time) this year and hearing them play a large assortment of their older stuff as well.

  37. Best 2016 album~ Gorguts “Pleides Dust”

    Love you guys tho! A pair of tix would be amazing! Money is REAL tight this Xmas and haven’t seen y’all since the last show with Darkest Hour! Stay metal🤘🏼

  38. Amon Amarth – Jomsviking!

  39. 2016 Best (well,one of my favs) Weekend Nachos “Apology”

  40. Deftonew gore

  41. I have to go with Magma by Gojira. Not the heaviest, but every time I listen to it, I enjoy it more.

  42. Mizmor, Yodh
