Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival Bands Raise Money For ALS

At a Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival show this week, Pop Evil took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge during the group’s performance on the Rockstar Energy Drink Main Stage.

Pop Evil’s lead singer Leigh Kakaty took the challenge while the rest of the band followed up backstage as soon as they walked off stage. Check out the video below.

After completing the challenge, Pop Evil nominated the bands Theory of a Deadman, Five Finger Death Punch and D.M.C. (Darryl McDaniels from Run-D.M.C.).

Pop Evil’s Leigh Kakaty said, “It feels good to be able to give back in more ways than just music.”

Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival producers, crew members, and the bands on the tour pulled together to make personal donations of over $ 4000 to ALS.

Uprorar Festival producer John Oakes commented, “ALS is a terrible disease. I think the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is an amazing viral marketing effort that has driven a massive amount of awareness and additional fundraising to the ALS Association. I am happy we were able to pull together and make a donation. I encourage others to take the challenge and most importantly, donate.”

Australian Heavy Metal Documentary “Metal Down Under” Officially Released

The “Metal Down Under” DVD – a documentary chronicling the history of heavy metal in Australia – has now finally been released and can be ordered at this location. A teaser trailer is available below, and the organizers of the movie comment:

“Since the late 1970’s a thriving underground scene of extreme music has continued to evolve in Australia. Metal Down Under takes a look at the bands, people and events that have shaped this unique slice of Australian history.

“More than just the music, we meet the characters that make metal in Australia what it is today. From promoters, radio hosts and magazine editors, to band members and extreme fans, Metal Down Under introduces you to a world you either didn’t want to know existed, or have been a part of all your life.

“Featuring over 40 exclusive interviews as well as rare archive footage and photographs from Metal for the Brain, Metal for Melbourne, The Big Day Out, SBS, music videos, live concerts and much more.

“Here’s the facts! Time and time again our beloved scene has been overshadowed, dismissed and disregarded by many mainstream media / culture and plenty of lethargic Australian heavy music fans too, oh not to forget the rest of the world’s ignorance or lack of knowledge. Bleak times? Maybe? But, that has all changed! To find out why? WATCH Metal Down Under! This film reveals the history, the unsung heroes of our scene and why it’s never been more important to acknowledge & support Australian Heavy Music wholeheartedly!”
