What, what? It’s Tuesday already? Well bloody hell! We suppose it is once again time for our new Underground Update, brought to you by our very own Julia Katrin and Tom Boatman. As you may have learned by now, these two never fail to deliver and are once again ready to bring you the latest information of great merchandise offers and live shows coming up this week to keep you occupied, and fabulous.
So, let’s see what’s out there…
Event: Virtual Quest Fest 2020
This Saturday comes Virtual Quest Fest 2020 straight, and FREE to your living room! Scheduled for this event are some bands who were due to be a part of the festival lineup this year, and joining them are as well some bands from previous years such as Memories of Old, Fury,and Rites To Ruin.
The event is planned to be hosted by Power Metal Quest Fest team at CapsaArx Studios and if you happen to have been at the festival before, they are urging you to send them photos of you there and if you have a photo of yourself wearing their merch, that is even better!
During this livestream show, you can also head over to a paypal donation site set up to support struggling artists in these times and all profits will be split equally between the bands that are involved. For further information, lineup so far and time schedules, head over to the Facebook event page!
Band: Lamb of God
Last week we had a word of the first live stream show Lamb of God planned to hold, and so they did on the 18th of September, where their new album Lamb of God was in the spotlight. However, now it is time for the second show, set to be held this coming Friday, September 25th where the landmark album Ashes of the Wake will be honored. Just like before, the show will be streamed from an intimate club in the band’s hometown of Richmond, Virginia. Tickets are available here as well as merch bundles, but keep in mind that if you did not get a ticket for the show last week, then you have to pay full price for the show this week.
Pre-show will start an hour before the set, and this time will feature an opening set from the band Whitechapel.
Band: King Parrot
Coming out of Melbourne, Australia (also the birthplace of such important figures as…one Tom Boatman!) King Parrot deliver a blistering combination of grind and thrash, with delightfully deranged vocals, on their forthcoming 7” EP “Holed Up In The Lair”. Recorded in Philip H. Anselmo’s studio (a definite stamp of quality), What’s not to love about this release? It’s time to go back over the band’s past releases and eagerly await their next full-length release. In the meantime check out the limited 7” vinyl and merch bundles here, and listen to some great extreme metal below:
