The Los Angeles Murderfest's baby edition The Mini Murderfest, will be having it's second year run, happening at the end of this month, for this year, April 28th and the 29th, at the Complex in Glendale, California.
But things have changed for the mini festival of the metal variety of music. The organizer, founder, and owner of the festival Daniel Dismal, had this say in regards to this year's edition,
"Unfortunately there's been a lot of shake ups with this years fest. Here's what's going on...
Friday - Our headliner lost a crucial member and had to cancel. We will be flying them out here in June for another show though. Stick with us.
Saturday - Unfortunately, Gabriel "Negru" Maffa, from Negură Bunget passed away. We're saddened by this as he was an amazing man. This leaves us without our Saturday headliner though.
Sunday - Our headlining package is now playing for us at the Regent on Monday, May 1st.
So where does this leave us? We're opening up the festival to all local bands within the grind, thrash, death, black metal, stoner, doom etc genre's to come out and play Friday and Saturday at Complex. This will become a showcase of some of the best bands from the Southern California, and maybe abroad area. The door will be cheap, it will be a celebration of what we all do, play and support music in the underground.
Those interested in playing, please email -
