Slay At Home, the heavy metal virtual music festival that raised funds for MusiCares and Global Giving, has officially announced the release of a compilation EP of songs from the series, according to Brooklyn Vegan. 100% of the proceeds generated by the EP will be donated to Black Lives Matter.
Artists that are featured on the four track EP stem from the bands Allegaeon, Gorguts, Stone Sour, Carbomb, Revocation, Suicidal Tendencies, Azusa, End, Thoughtcrimes, Nitesoil and The Dillinger Escape Plan. Many other artists were featured in the other Slay At Home streams aside from those featured on the EP.
One previous Slay At Home performance featured a Van Halen cover band comprised of members of War on Women and High on Fire. Another performance featured members of GWAR, Suicidal Tendencies, Cadaver, Megadeth and The Black Dahlia Murder to perform a cover of Cannibal Corpse’s “Pick Axe Murders.” Other bands that have appeared on the program include Suicide Silence, Silvertomb, TesseracT, Cadaver, Khemmis, and Darkest Hour.
mxdwn reviewed day one of the Slay At Home stream, covering nine acts that took place. While the performances were almost entirely heavy metal based, there were a few acts that diverted the attention away from the usual heavily distorted guitar and bass that provided bursts of freshness throughout the stream. All in all, the event was truly unprecedented, and served as a great way to provide fans with much needed entertainment in a time of uncertainty.
