Fort Rock is a 2 day festival at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, FL. The metal fest has made a name for itself in the past few years and the 2017 lineup does not disappoint.

Red Fang Only Ghosts Album Review
Red Fang is that rare band that mixes head numbing sludge metal coupled with a humor rarely found – levels only The Melvins and Mastodon can reach.
