Fund Raising Drive Launched For True Thrash Fest [Osaka] Organizers – Please Read

TRUE THRASH FEST in Osaka, Japan is the most important Underground Festival in Japan. The organizer Miki is one of the most valuable guys of the scene worldwide and always helpful to others, who also runs a shop/label called Rock Stakk Records.

Due to all the health-related issues plaguing the world because of the Coronavirus, both of this year’s headliners (Violence and Sacred Reich) canceled their slots only a week before the event with many people demanding refunds. This, of course, has left Miki in a tough bind with enormous financial loss threatening the existence of his shop and his future.

A gofundme site has been launched by festival organizers from around the world: UP THE HAMMERS (Greece), HAMMER AND IRON, HAMMER OF DOOM, METAL ASSAULT, KEEP IT TRUE (all Germany), LEGIONS OF METAL (USA) plus some others. Please help and show support to our scene, even small amounts are helping Miki. Thank you all so much for your support!

Here’s the link to the gofundme: is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world. We support all bands and genres HOWEVER we do not support nor have any sympathy for homophobic, racist, sexist rhetoric in lyrical content or band material. UNITE ASIA!
