In the process of getting back to normality after the massive earthquake that devastated the whole Himalayan nation of Nepal, the two local promoters Brutal Pokhara (in association with Defenders’ of Metal) and Massacre Events announces the two city tour of the American Death Metal superpowers ‘Funerus‘. The American metallers are travelling to their maiden Asian tour in support of their recently released EP ‘The Black Death’ and will be playing in countries such as China, India, Bangladesh and the Philippines.
Formed in the year 1990 the band is spearheaded by one of Metal’s greatest female front-woman Jill McEntee and perhaps one of the most important personnel in Death Metal history John McEntee (Incantation, ex-Mortician, ex-Immolation, ex-Goreaphobia, ex-Revenant). The band is recently joined by the two veterans of the Pittsburgh Metal scene, Pat Carroll (ex- Liquified Guts) on drums and Barry Mull (ex-Rottrevore) on guitars hence completing the line up. Funerus will be playing Pokhara on Sep 9th and Kathmandu on Sep 10th.
With this Brutal Pokhara have also announced their new annual event ‘Pokhara Metal Gathering’ which they will be doing in association with Defenders of Metal.
