Talking up the ‘Pulse Of The Maggots’ event, Sylosis guitarist Josh Middleton said, “We’re very excited to be back in Birmingham alongside some of the best upcoming talent in international metal. This is our first show of 2022 and one of our first back with new music…and there is more to come very soon! See you there!”
Heriot’s Debbie Gough adds, “As big fans of Sylosis, we’re thrilled to be on this line-up in the home of metal! Birmingham is a special city for us to play and to be a part of this unique event means a lot to Heriot.”
Elsewhere in Slipknot news, the band recently partnered with The Sandbox, a leading decentralized gaming virtual world and a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, to bring their Knotfest event into the metaverse- creating Knotverse, a Web3 home for Slipknot/Knotfest metaverse experiences, concerts, and lifestyle, in The Sandbox.
The collaboration brings together innovators in their respective fields to create a one-of-a-kind meeting place for heavy music culture in the metaverse. Knotverse will host Web3 experiences curated by Knotfest and Slipknot specifically for the culture. The Knotverse roadmap will see unique NFTs and generative collections, plus metaverse concerts, gaming experiences, fan experiences, unique collaborations, wearables and much much more. It will ultimately offer fans of the heavy culture utility through unique access to new music, IRL events, festival experiences, merchandise, gear, masks, and more.
