METAL FOR KIDS UNITED! All-Star Charity Jam performs DEEP PURPLE's BURN and goes global!


Monday 5 October 2020, METAL FOR KIDS UNITED! All-Star Charity Jam will celebrate its 5th Anniversary with the worldwide release of an all-star video jam tribute to the fathers of Heavy Metal. The final result is an extended version of Deep Purple's classic Burn featuring 25 metal artists from around the world.

Italian benefit format Metal For Kids United! will support once again Peter Pan Association, a voluntary association helping children with cancer and their families since 1994 through free hospitality in Rome during care treatments at Child Jesus Hospital.
"Due to sudden spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, we were forced to cancel the 2020 edition of the annual benefit show booked in Rome for April. During the spring lockdown period we have asked old and new friends of Metal For Kids United to jam together from their own place to celebrate our V Anniversary and keep the promise made to the association" says Fabrizio Troiano, president of the Cultural Association "Metal For Kids United" and organizer of the event.

The line-up of 25 performers includes thrash metal legends such as bassist David Ellefson (Megadeth, Ellefson, Metal Allegiance), guitarist Scott Ian (Anthrax, SOD), along with classic-power metal artists from around the world like German screamer Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear, ex Gamma Ray), Bay Area singer Brian O'Connor (ex Vicious Rumors), Brazilian guitarist/singer Rafael Bittencourt (Angra), Japanese guitar virtuoso Syu (Galneryus), drummer Thomen Stauch (ex Blind Guardian, Mentalist) and guitarist Jens Ludwig (Edguy) from Germany as well as Italian keyboards player Mistheria (Vivaldi Metal Project, Bruce Dickinson).

 


But the list includes also other well-known and internationally established Italian Heavy Metal/Rock musicians from bands like Doro, Extrema, Vision Divine, Labyrinth to name a few, reunited with the aim of raising awareness of children cancer and raising funds for voluntary associations which are striving to carry out their daily mission in such hard times.
By releasing the all-star video, the Cultural Association "Metal For Kids United" will make an initial donation of EUR 2.000 (approx. USD 2,300) in favor of Peter Pan Association to kick off and boost the fund raising campaign available on GoFundMe platform: gofundme.com/metal-for-kids-united-against-kids-cancer.

Rock and Metal lovers will have the chance to enjoy this Deep Purple's classic in a new and contemporary rendition for free and will be invited to support the initiative with donations for the cause or by purchasing the merchandise.

Over EUR 12,000 have been donated to non-profit organizations working in Italy to help children in the 4 past editions.

Fabrizio Troiano further says: "We are very proud of the achievements over the years and we hope, despite the impossibility of making a physical event as in our tradition, we can once again share fun together, raise funds for the kids in need and give the chance to the people from all over the world to experience the Metal For Kids United! spirit of solidarity. Don't forget to play it loud, make metal horns, headbang and share the video!"
