This is a continuation of Exlporing The World – Botswana

Remember Wrust? The band from Botswana who was trying to raise money to perform at a European festival in Italy? Well, good news… They did it! With the generous contribution of many devoted metalheads they collected most of the money needed to get to Milan and perform at this heavy event.

The festival is going to take place on Wednesday June 26th and will be headlined by Red Fang and Karma To Burn! There will also be Wrust, In Zaire and approximately 10 other bands. Many of them are notable, heavy Italian acts like Zeus!, Nero Di Marte and Fuzz Orchestra, which are among the most respected of our local scene.

This is an awesome example of what strong solidarity in heavy metal can lead to. A documentary movie called “March Of The Gods” is going to tell the story of Wrust and the Botswana metal scene. The last scene will be shot at the festival. We’re all waiting for it! Stay metal \m/
