Godla commented:

“By keeping the set times between 5 and 15 minutes for each artist, it allows me to not only keep things moving, but mix it up in ways that conventional festivals simply can’t. Every single hour will contain big names and emerging artists right next to each other.

I’m trying to look at the bright side of our current situation, and not only make this an entertaining way to see the artists you love flex their creativity in new ways, but hope this event acts as a place of discovery for every viewer out there.

Finding a band or artist to fall in love with is the mark of a great festival to me, and it’s my honor to share the work of these amazing individuals I curated because I’m passionate about them. I’ve been in touch with all of them every step of the way, and some even managed to throw me a few surprises.

I’m honored and humbled to have all of them part of this, they truly went above and beyond to showcase their craft for the Slay At Home fest, and I can’t wait for the world to see something really special come to life this weekend.”

Money raised from the event will benefit MusiCares and Global Giving.

The experience of a live concert is irreplaceable, but my aim with Slay At Home is to provide every person in the world an experience they haven’t seen yet, right from their own devices. I’ve never been more proud to be part of the metal community and have so many great friends willing to join the fun, as we support two great organizations.”

Rivers Of Nihil To Perform “Where Owls Know My Name” In Full On European/UK Tour

Rivers Of Nihil have announced that they will be performing “Where Owls Know My Name” in full on their European/UK tour with Black Crown Initiate, MØL, and Orbit Culture. The group will be joined onstage by saxophonist Zach Strouse on this run.

The band said the following:

“After the absolutely insane ride that was the US “Owls” tour, and more than a third of the shows selling out we knew that we absolutely had to bring the same experience over to the UK and Europe.

This time we are bringing the one and only Zach Strouse along with us to play live saxophone. Zach played all of the saxophone on ‘Owls’ and we’ve managed to lure him out of his dwelling for this super special tour.

Don’t miss this one opportunity to see the true “Where Owls Know My Name” lineup play the record from front to back. Additionally, Andy Thomas from Black Crown Initiate will be joining us on stage each night to perform his guest parts from the record. See you all there!”
