In celebration of Metal Injection turning 20 years old this year, we’ve got a brand new beer for you! Enter the Neck Breaker – a smooth pilsner laying at 4.666% ABV, brewed by our friends at Thin Man Brewery in Buffalo, NY. Cascade, Saaz and Chinook hops round out this refreshing beer. Enjoy it COLD with the heaviest record you have.

The Neck Breaker is available here online, and hopefully it ships to you – it’s really good.

And speaking of killer 20th anniversary activities, we’ve got our very own Metal Injection festival coming up this September. This year’s fest will be held in New York at Brooklyn Monarch & Meadows on September 21 and 22, with tickets available right here.

The festival roster includes exclusive specials sets like the recently-reunited God Forbid playing Gone Forever for the first time in its entirety, and 3 Inches of Blood reunited and performing on the East Coast for the first time in over a decade. There’s also the very special, commissioned world debut of the project Pallid Veil featuring Luc Lemay of Gorguts, Dave Davidson of Revocation, Liam Wilson of The Dillinger Escape Plan and In Flames, and Elliot Hoffman of Carbomb; as well as a special acoustic set by Stephen Brodsky and Adam McGrath of Cave In, and so much more!

Join us for an unforgettable weekend with 31 bands, on 3 stages, in 2 days of rock and metal that runs the gamut between death metal, djent, metal core, hardcore, doom, rock, gothic metal, thrash, industrial, slam and more!
