MusicPlace North-West team up with Maguire’s for a night of ‘metal therapy’ and Getintothis’ Nedim Hassan has the inside scoop.  

Maguire’s Pizza Bar is no stranger to putting on metal shows and unafraid to house gigs at the extreme end of the scale.  

Yet this Sunday (8th April) it hosts a metal event with an even bigger difference.  Bands from the north west metal scene have come together to support Merseyside-based MusicPlace North-West, one of the region’s leading music therapy charities.

All proceeds from the gig will go towards helping MusicPlace’s team provide music therapy services for people with a wide range of social, mental and psychological difficulties. The diverse bill is indicative of the dynamism within the local metal scene.  Headlining proceedings are Manchester’s crust-punk infused black metal upstarts Wolfbastard, whose scorching self-titled debut album was released on UKEM Records in 2015.

They will be ably supported by fellow Mancunians, Chiasmata, and their brand of uplifting, melodic prog metal.  Joining these two will be Liverpool’s own blistering extreme metal act, Crejuvent, and upcoming melodic death metallers, Intoxication.

The event will take place on Sunday, April 8th starting at 7.00pm.
