Freshers week is fast approaching! As a rock or metal fan, you may be worried about finding likeminded friends with similar interests. If that is the case – Fear Not! Most universities will have a rock/metal society that you can join. The good thing about a rock soc, is that they will have already listed all the best rock and metal events coming up, and most will head down to the local rock night each week.
The University of Birmingham Metal Society are right on form, having organised a gig as a way of welcoming the freshers to the university. However anyone in the public is also welcome to attend.
The society have put together an brutal line-up of metal bands including the tech-prog-metal dudes Cambion – Having appeared alongside such bands as Scar Symmetry, Sacred Mother Tongue and Breed 77, and have even played the mighty Bloodstock this summer, they are sure not to disappoint.
Morgue Orgy will also be playing and it is said that last time the Metal Society brang them to the Underground, there were jazz hands, mosh pits and a human pyramid – so you know this is going to be a party!
Fresh Blood will also play host to Dakesis, a female fronted 4-piece from Birmingham, and Meolestis – a one-man outfit from Hampshire.
The event on October 8th takes place at The Underground venue at the University of Birmingham Guild of Students, from 7pm. Tickets are available on the door, £3 for Metal Soc members, £5 for non-members. Joining the society costs £3, and they’ll be holding events and socials all year.
