Pulp Summer Slam XX Worlds Collide: End of an Era for Heavy Metal in the Philippines

Christian Melanie Lee
Everything must come to an end.

The longest-running metal festival in Southeast Asia bids farewell to the legion of
Filipino heavy metal fans this coming March 23 rd , 2024 at the famed Amoranto Stadium in Quezon City, but in true PULP-style, it will not go quietly into the night. 

In fact, it promises to be the year’s most explosive gathering of explosive hard rock/heavy metal bands and fans, in keeping the fine tradition of delivering the best artists the genre has to offer, and continuously elevating the overall concert experience for rock fans, through an impressive display of lights, sound, and perks like exclusive meet n’ greet packages for diehard aficionados.

The festival boasts of an all-international lineup of nine internationally acclaimed bands coming from all corners of the globe: from Italy, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE will be delivering a frighteningly impressive set of symphonic and technical death metal, while Sau Paolo Brazil’s CRYPTA is an all-female death metal outfit that has been making waves in the worldwide metal community. From Seoul, South Korea, genre-bending all-female rock outfit ROLLING QUARTZ will surely add a healthy dose of both sonic and visual candy to the lineup, and Japan’s PROMPTS are raising the flag for melodic heavy metal. And from various cities of the United States, bands like LA DISPUTE (a post-hardcore group from Grand Rapids, Michigan), FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY (a New Jersey-based deathcore band), OF VIRTUE (metalcore from Lansing, Michigan) will be bringing various sounds and styles with their unique takes on the subgenres under the
heavy metal umbrella, including co-headliners and modern punk rock band STORY OF THE YEAR, a surefire favorite that emerged and quickly rose to worldwide popularity during the early part of the millennium.

Headlining the festival to bring the metalcore thunder from down under is PARKWAY DRIVE, arguably one of the biggest Australian underground metal bands the world has ever seen. Hailing from Byron Bay, New South Wales, the band - featuring vocalist Winston McCall, guitarists Jeff Ling and Luke Kilpatrick, bassist Jia O’Connor, and drummer Ben Gordon - Parkway Drive is definitely anticipated by many fans, as this would be their second time in the country, the first show being 12 years ago in 2011 which was also produced by PULP Live World.

Without a doubt, PULP Summer Slam will forever hold its legacy as being the most
legitimate metal festival for Filipino fans since its first installment in the year 2000. It has become an annual mecca of sorts, where fans from all over the country - and the world- gather to celebrate and support both artists and each other to keep the flame of the 
worldwide heavy metal scene burning bright.
