Last year's inaugural Black Sky fest. Full slideshow here.
Last year, Sherwood Webber of Skinless put together a festival with a meticulous curatorial eye for aggressive music and no patience for gimmickry of any kind. The result was Denver Black Sky, which we named the best metal fest last month.

The Fest returns this August with two days of bands likely to match the fury of last year's lineup. But don't take my word for it -- I just showed the list of bands to the biggest thrash metal/hardcore expert I know and his instantaneous reaction was, "Huge."

It includes grindcore legend Brutal Truth, Virginia thrash band Municipal Waste and affiliated band Cannabis Corpse (feels inevitable, doesn't it?). The full lineup was announced today; you can see it below. Denver Black Sky II will be August 2 and 3 at the Gothic Theatre. Tickets are $50 for two-day passes and go on sale Saturday, April 26 at 10 a.m.
