MOSH PIT MADNESS
Pulp Summer Slam, Southeast Asia's longest-running heavy metal festival, is back this month for its 18th annual run, and this year it features the highest number of international names on its lineup since its inception in 2001. Screaming their way to the coveted headline spot are Polish black metal giants Behemoth, known for their widely acclaimed and boldly blasphemous album The Satanist. They will be joined by metal mavens including British extreme-metal legends Cradle of Filth and Swedish death-metal outfit At the Gates. Expect heaps of headbanging and a multitude of mosh pits on a day that attracts metalheads from across the region.
WHERE AND WHEN? MANILA, 5 MAY
