Mahatma to Co-Headlining Pulp Summer Slam Festival 2008

Korea’s first Thrash metal killing machine Mahatma will be co-headlining this year’s Pulp Summer Slam Festival (the Philippine’s biggest annual rock event) with Darkest Hour (from USA and Victory records artist). Last year’s Summer Slam had a total of 35,000 in attendance with Death Angel as the headliner. This year, the organizers are hoping to break last year’s attendance by putting more foreign acts to the line up plus the Philippine’s best rock/metal bands. With Mahatma and Darkest Hour as the headliners, the crowd will be treated to full metal assault with Darkest Hour’s Americanized Gothenburg metal and Mahatma’s ’80s Bay Area inspired thrash metal. This is a certified headbanging galore and mosh inducing frenzy event. Summer Slam 8 will be held at Amoranto Stadium, Quezon City, Philippines on the 26th of April.

Mahatma will also be headlining a pre-Summer Slam show on the 25th of April with some local metal bands from the Philippines. We will post later the venue and the official line up as it is still to be arranged but the show is already confirmed.

The Philippine tour is in support of Mahatma’s highly acclaimed sophomore album, “Perseverance”. If you’re a fan of thrash metal or heavy music in general, consider this a mandatory purchase. You can listen to some of the songs from the album at
