Turning Tricks Entertainment proudly presents KRANK’D UP 2014 . Having now firmly established itself as a mainstay in the South African music festival scene, KRANK’D UP has pushed up a level and upped the overall heaviness with this year’s special headlining act. Having dominated the international metal circuit for over 15 years, Boston, Massachusetts’ force of nature, Unearth , finally has the opportunity to perform their crushing brand of heavy metal to their legion of South African fans. With half a million albums sold worldwide, critical acclaim from the metal press, countless world tours, and a devastating live show that borders on the insane, Unearth is set to show South Africa why they are considered one of the leaders of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal: [embedplusvideo height=”360″ width=”450″ editlink=”http://bit.ly/1jtsAHj” standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/bWjTaaWyFkA?fs=1″ vars=”ytid=bWjTaaWyFkA&width=450&height=360&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=0&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=¬es=” id=”ep2691″ /] Joining Unearth and South Africa’s best local talent will be Protest the Hero, the famed Canadian group that has redefined the genre of metal.
