Blaakyum Pre Bloodstock Show At The Rev UK

Traveling to the UK after being chosen to headline the New Blood Stage at Bloodstock Festival on Sunday 13th August, Lebanese Metal Thrashers Blaakyum will take their unique blend of Thrash, Heavy, and Groove Metal infused with Middle Eastern and Levantine folk music vibes to London.  Blaakyum Pre Bloodstock Show will take place at The Dev in Camden Town, a venue that is well known for its support to the underground music scene.

Three bands will be opening for Blaakyum at this event at The Dev. And here’s where we got surprised. It caught our attention that alongside Caskets and Endeavour, Element 26’s Guitarist and founding member Alexy Khoury‘s newest band, “GODD” will be opening for the Lebanese Thrashers, which is pretty cool!
Also, it is important to note that Endeavour‘s guitarist IAN is also Onslaught.
