Metal United World Wide: Approaching Fast

Metal United World Wide FB Banner

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.

Thanks to Black-Roos Entertainment promoters and bands are uniting their love of Heavy Metal and supporting their local Heavy scene in all parts of the globe. We have countries where heavy music is celebrated all the way through to places in the world where heavy music is all but illegal and bands have to fight for their ability to perform the music they’ve created, doing what they love. MUWW is all inclusive, we want everyone to be involved!

There are dozens of stories about the struggle and the joy of living the music we love throughout the world. In Afghanistan a single band who are forced to operate in hiding, and don’t even have access to a drumkit, are still trying to perform on June 15th, for their love of Metal. 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!

We have several shows all over Australia. From Hervey Bay to Perth we are showcasing some of the best talent in the underground and local scenes. So come down and support what truly is an international unification of Heavy Metal, be a part of something bigger, be a part of history, join us for Metal United World Wide 2019!

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
