Metal Pioneers Megadeth Returns to Manila to Headline Southeast Asia’s Biggest and Longest-Running Metal Festival
Red Horse Beer and PULP Live World proudly announce the full line-up of PULP SUMMER SLAM 17: REDEMPTION, the 17th edition of Southeast Asia’s biggest and longest-running metal festival this April 29, 2017 at Amoranto Stadium, Quezon City: living metal legends MEGADETH will headline a stellar line-up that features The Devil Wears Prada, Dragonforce, Whitechapel, Crossfaith, Australian progressive metal band Gods of Eden, Slapshock, GREYHOUNDZ, WilaBaliW, Razorback, Kjwan and the Red Horse Beer Pambansang Muziklaban Recruitment 2016 winner.
This year’s roster promises to be the biggest Slam ever with MEGADETH headlining this monster line-up of ferocity and chaos! The American heavy metal band currently comprised of bassist David Ellefson, guitarist Kiko Loureiro, drummer Dirk Verbeuren and two-time Golden God awardee frontman Dave Mustaine are set to return to Manila after their immensely-successful solo Manila concert held last July 29, 2012. Together with Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, Megadeth is widely regarded as part of “The Big 4” that changed the landscape of metal and heavy rock music forever with classics such as “A Tout le Monde,” “Holy Wars…The Punishment Due,” “Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying?” and “Symphony of Destruction,” among many others.
Two international bands from the historic 13th and 14th installments of the Slam are also set to make a return to the Philippines’ most commanding rock stage. British power metal band DRAGONFORCE (from PULP Summer Slam XIII: ‘Til Death Do Us part) is universally known for their fantasy themes, technical precision and the guitar-playing prowess of Herman Li while Japanese electronicore band CROSSFAITH (from PULP Summer Slam 14: Children of the Damned) returns from their head-turning first time to their newfound status as one of Japan’s biggest rock exports. Tennessee-based deathcore band WHITECHAPEL will be touring in support of their recently-released sixth full-length album Mark of the Blade, the follow-up to their 2014 breakthrough release Our Endless War, which peaked at the Billboard Album Charts at the Top 10. Christian metalcore band THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA has consistently been top of the young Summer Slam devotees’ wishlists for the past handful of years and counting. Local headliners WILABALIW, GREYHOUNDZ and SLAPSHOCK are considered by Slam devotees as The Three Kings of Pinoy Heavy Rock.
PULP SUMMER SLAM 17: REDEMPTION featuring MEGADETH, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, DRAGONFORCE, WHITECHAPEL, CROSSFAITH, GODS OF EDEN, SLAPSHOCK, GREYHOUNDZ, WILABALIW, RAZORBACK and KJWAN is co-presented by PULP Live World and Red Horse Beer in cooperation with Tribal GEAR - Philippines, Mountain Dew, Republika ng TM and 28 Philippines, with official media sponsors MYX Philippines, Monster RX93.1, Philippine Star, and PULP Magazine.
