Sponsored by 95 WIIL Rock FM, WIIL Rock Fest celebrates its 20-year anniversary with a lineup of 20 hard-hitting bands. Since its founding in 1998, All That Remains has steadily climbed to the highest peaks of the heavy-rock pantheon, culminating with its most recent album, For We Are Many, which reached the No. 10 spot on the U.S. Billboard 200 charts. Praised by AllMusic.com for its "balance between heaviness and harmony," the album gives singer Phil Labonte's growling vocals a chance to soar while guitarist Oli Herbert shows off his nimble fingers with warp-speed pyrotechnics and impromptu touch-typing solos. The Mississippians of Saving Abel cook up no-frills rock, making their name with a hardworking tour schedule that has seen them share the stage with Nickelback and Buckcherry.
Metal stalwarts Fear Factory continue a collaboration that has spanned more than two decades, showing off their old-school form with their most recent album, The Industrialist, lauded by Sputnik Music for its "vitality and balls to the wall approach." Inaugurating its personal label, Palehorse Records, with hard-hitting drums, ominous guitar, and swirling, anthemic choruses, 10 Years hypes its upcoming release, Minus the Machine.
