Featuring some of the heaviest acts from across Canada to rumble the Alberta prairies, this year's SHREDMONTON will be headlined by Vancouver power titans UNLEASH THE ARCHERS, Winnipeg's doom funeral PSYCHOTIC GARDENING and Edmonton gore masters BLËED from Friday, May 12th to Sunday, May 14th 2017 at the Mercury Room (full band list below).

SHREDMONTON organizer Tyson Travnik comments:

"We're very proud to be able to focus this year's festival on showcasing bands that we feel have supported past Canadian festivals plus helped their local scenes flourish. Focusing on keeping this year's experience intimate, yet retaining top-shelf quality is something that I think will set 2017 apart from events we've done in the past. "
