Despite the genre's extremity, it's rarely a dull time to be a metalhead in Asia, with many bands arriving upon Singapore's shores, or even touring around the region.
With recent shows by Metallica and Periphery, along with a highly-anticipated upcoming show by Megadeth, there's plenty to look forward to. But independent concert promoter Street Noise Productions will be holding three shows within the next few months for metal fans.
The first is an already packed metal showcase, aptly titled Metal Mayhem — American deathcore band Whitechapel and Brazilian death metal heroes Krisiun will headline alongside Australian metalcore group A Night In Texas, Brazilian extreme metal fusionists Nervo Chaos and Singaporean mathcore band Glassmouth on May 6th at Millian Singapore. Tickets here.
Krisiun, a pioneering metal act from South America.
But that's not all — classic Japanese death metal band Defiled will also perform an intimate show at The Music Parlour on April 10th, alongside Singaporean death metal bands Demonification and Disipiteous, and Malaysian band Larrong. Tickets here.
