BraveWords' first year partnering with this world renown Mexican festival could be heard around the world on Tuesday, December 6th at the Arena Monterrey, which was moved indoors (from the Estadio Mobil Super stadium) due to weather and logistical issues. This 20 year-old venue is an absolutely stunning, state-of-the-art entertainment capsule with the most incredible sightlines and sonics unmatched.



A paradise for a heavy metal party, this one featuring the most unbelievable line-up which included headliners Judas Priest (celebrating 50 Years Off Heavy Metal), the second Pantera tribute (semi-reunion) show featuring Anthrax drum legend Charlie Benante and guitar whiz Zakk Wylde, Mercyful Fate's must-see ritualistic rite, Behemoth's black metal battalion and Stryper wrapping a Christian bow around the entire show. Watch for a full review soon, but first-up, check out some stunning visuals from the event courtesy of Oscar Sañudo Corona from Opera Rock FILMS. Click the gallery above. And yes, the BraveWords-sponsored event sold out!
