KELOWNA - A wave of of pummeling and progressive metal is crashing into Kelowna next month, providing metal-heads with some of the best doom, death, and progressive metal from around the world.

Muninn's Post is hosting an all-ages metal show on May 11 starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 at the door. Vancouver's Neck of the Woods will headline the show, accompanied by Majestic Downfall from Mexico, Helevorn from Spain, and Kelowna's own Apollyon.

Formed in 2014, Neck of the Woods is a progressive metal band defined by their blend of diverse sounds and energetic live shows. Their show in Kelowna is part of a tour of Washington, Alberta, and B.C.

Jacobo Cordova is a one-man metal machine. He formed Majestic Downfall in 2006, inspired by European doom metal from the 1990s, and he's been touring and making music ever since. He'll be ripping through all of Canada during his May tour.

Helevorn will be joining Majestic Downfall in its Canadian tour. Formed in 2000, Helevorn is a Spanish doom metal band that's earned fans around the world. Their latest album, Aamamata, was released last January and it was inspired by the countless lives lost in the Mediterranean Sea. It's been described as intense, dark, epic, and some of the band's best work.

Local band Apollyon will get a chance to shine with these established bands at the May 11 show. A blackened death metal band from Kelowna, Apollyon formed in 2014 and quickly evolved a dynamic sound. Their debut album, False Light, dropped last November. Their live shows have been described as savage, so audience members should prepare for a memorable experience.

Check out the bands' musical offerings below and get hyped for the metal massacre next month.
