Hey, I was wondering whether any of you dudes or ladies might be driving to Darjeeling in the vicinity of September 30? See, I just found out there’s a metal festival that’s gonna happen there from September 30 – October 2 called Underground Unleashed 2011. And wait til you see the line-up:
Cerebral Bore (U.K)
Nervo Chaos (Brazil)
Morbid Devourment (Indonesia)
I don’t know all these bands — yet — but the first three pretty much made me start drooling uncontrollably. I would totally be willing to share driving duties and buy a tank or two of gas. I’d bring some good tunes, too. Maybe even treat everyone to a burger when we get there. Or whatever people in Darjeeling eat that doesn’t cost much money. (more after the jump, including more hot-shit Incantation news . . .)
Ibex Moon Records, the label of Incantation founder/guitarist/vocalist John McEntee is an official sponsor of the festival, and it will be Incantation’s first appearance in India. And in the nature of MORE FUCKING COOL NEWS, there’s this, from the same press release:
In other Incantation news, McEntee recently hooked up with guitarist Alex Bouks (Goreaphobia) and bassist Chuck Sherwood to plant the seeds for what will become the band’s highly-anticipated next album. Drummer Kyle Severn will join the fray in the coming weeks to contribute to the writing process. Though in its earliest stages, the new material promises to be the heaviest and sickest of the band’s storied career.
Uh huh. New Incantation on the way — the first new full-length in five years. ‘Scuse me while I sop up the drool.
OK, drool pretty much under control now.
So, back to catching a ride. I don’t really know how far it is to Darjeeling, India from Seattle. Might be some water to cross between here and there, but that’s what boats are for, right? I don’t get seasick, so don’t worry about spewage in the car. Or maybe we could drive a land bridge over the Bering Straits?
So, who’s up for a road trip?
