Blood will rain from the sky at Kryptonite Metal Festival VII.
And by blood, we mean beer. And by beer, we mean lots of it. Because when 1,900 heads bang, the Earth shakes. And if you're not careful, you might spill your drink.
Forty bands -- yeah, count 'em -- will play four different stages for a half-hour each, from 4 in the afternoon till 3 in the morning. As show promoter Oski Gonzalez says, "That's a long time. That's a lotta metal."
Here is what some of the other characters involved have to say about it.

"There wasn't anything for metal heads in South Florida, so we started this festival. Now people look forward to it like Christmas. We definitely hold the metal flag high for all the styles. There's so many, like black metal, blackened metal, melodic, progressive, death core, math core, djent (that's the sound the guitar makes, very palm-muted), and those are just a few. We could make a whole country of people in bands. I wish I could do this every month. I take pride in it. It's hard work, but it brings people together. I always hear about people marrying someone they met at the fest. Horns up. Metal forever."
