Metal United World Wide (MUWW) is gearing up once again to unite metal bands and fans all across the globe…One night, one banner, one mission: Bang Your Head! June 15th is the date of destiny with around 300 bands performing in shows held in over 35 countries, from Melbourne to Mexico City, from South Africa to Ireland, MUWW truly brings the world of metal together in celebration!

Music is one of the very few things that connects people, it brings people together. It helps you understand strangers; it helps you to form a bond with people you have never met and strengthens friendships that are already there. The love of music brings together people from other countries, raised in other cultures and speak different languages. Heavy metal has thrived because of the bond it creates, this feeling of belonging to something bigger. The sensation you experience when you attend a live show is almost indescribable, the rush of excitement, your voice uniting with hundreds or thousands of people around you, singing along with the band you love. It is this feeling that Metal United World Wide is all about. This feeling brings people from all over the world together to share the experience.

In Brunei the government has all but forbidden the performance of Heavy Metal music, but that hasn’t deterred the passionate fans from wanting to play on 15th June.

In Indonesia Heavy bands are being influenced by the countries dense and unique history to create fresh new Metal sounds and cannot wait to show the world how the love of Heavy Metal has grown so quickly in their country. Its adrenal impact on the population stirring new bands to rise and connect with their emotional audience. In Singapore they tried to fight against the age-old outcry that heavy Metal is ‘Evil’ and ‘Satanic’ to perform the music they love but unfortunately, they have been shut out by the church, with venues giving in to religious groups pressure and blocking any possible shows. This is why the message of Metal United World Wide is so important. To raise the profile of the world of Metal so we can all enjoy the music and the performance as one!

Australians Warrior Within: Release Video ‘Opus’

Australian thrash metallers Warrior Within have released the song Opus from their deput EP In Darkness Act 1 as video.

Warrior Within are purveyors of good wholesome thrash metal. They do not stick to one topic lyrically but cover social, political and esoteric themes. The band from the Australian Sunshine Coast was established in the 90s by brothers Tass and Toli. With Scott and Dan joining, the band has been shaped into the current form.

Guitarist Tass states: “We have persevered through all adversity to release our music. To us Heavy Metal is not just entertainment, its a vehicle to explore a better reality.” Fans will have a lot of opportunity to find out what that means. Warrior Within is already working on their second EP. In addition, metalheads living along Australia’s East Coast will have the chance to see the guys live as they plan a tour for early 2020.

Have a listen to In Darkness Act 1 to get a first taste of all that coming.
