Hey Kids –
We’re pleased as punch to bring you the second annual Metalween show this October. Last year saw screaming covers of classic tunes by Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, the Scorpions and more, and this one figures to be even bigger, blacker and more metal than last year’s thanks to our friend the Seattle Rock Guy, who’s co-promoting the event.
“Maiden, Priest & Metalween: A classic metal themed Halloween night hosted by Metal Mike (aka Mike Spine)” happens Friday, October 29 at Cafe Venus / Mars Bar in Eastlake. $8 advance. $10 door. Metal costumes strongly encouraged.
Right now We are looking for some kick-ass Seattle bands to play 2-3 songs of their favorite 60’s to 90’s metal tunes. Please submit a link to your music, along with the bands and songs that you desire to cover to songs (at) nadamucho (dot) com.
Covers and interpretations we are interested in hearing should come from the classic metal/hard rock catalog. Think: Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Van Halen, Scorpions. AC/DC, Dio, Slayer, Metallica, Guns ‘n Roses and the like. No “Nu-metal” (Korn), crappy 80s metal (Winger), or so forth. Bands can do these songs in a classic cover format, or if you are bold, try to reinterpret them in your own wicked way.
There will be a shared backline of amplifiers and drums to keep things moving, so bands will just need to bring their instruments to plug in and be ready to rock.
