Headbangers Unite at Metal for Nepal Benefit Concerts


Although heavy metal isn’t something usually associated with Nepal, Metal for Nepal is about to change that. Following the recent tragic earthquakes in Nepal, a series of Metal for Nepal benefit concerts has been announced to raise funds for the quake victims.

The first show will be held in Los Angeles on June 13 at the Complex in Glendale, with headliners KYNG and sludge quartet 16, as well as LA-based metal bands Thrown Into Exile and Kaustick.

Boston will also have its very own Metal for Nepal benefit on June 20 at Middle East Nightclub featuring Obsidian Tongue, Native Construct and more.

“The power of music never ceases to amaze and the metal community is no different,” Kyng drummer Pepe Clark told Revolver. “Metal for Nepal is an amazing effort to help others in need and we are honored to have been asked to participate.”

All proceeds raised from the show will go to support the non-profit organization No Silence For Nepal, which was founded by musicians in the metal community to aid victims of the Nepal earthquake. They are currently working to provide water, food, clothing and medicine to people in the affected areas. No Silence For Nepal is also making an effort to help rebuild damaged homes.
