China’s biggest metal fest gets stopped by the police

Over the weekend, China’s metal community was about to celebrate their most important night of the year – the annual 330 Metal Festival held every year in Beijing organized by the guitarist of Suffocated. This year was especially important because Suffocated were releasing their new record at this event…as you can see from the photos below – the event was HUGE…over 1000 people showed up to be part of this celebration of Chinese metal.

Reports have it that after the first couple of bands played the police showed up complaining that there were too many people at the event. They asked everyone to leave and then come back in. When they came back in it was announced that the event had to be canceled because of “safety” concerns.

As you look at the faces of those in attendance cause by this photographer DM-Simon you can feel hopelessness set in to those in attendance.

But metalheads all over the world know that what doesn’t kill us, only makes us stronger. We have no doubt that this is going to bring the Chinese metal community even closer together and be an even larger force to be reckoned with.
