Tragedy struck Japan two months ago, and the worlds of MMA and heavy metal are joining forces to raise some money for the grief-stricken nation. MMA fighter Josh Barnett has organized a benefit concert for the Land of the Rising Sun and has booked some impressive bands to draw the biggest crowd possible. The show is at the House of Blues on May 26th and tickets can be purchased here. Confirmed acts for the show thus far include:

All Shall Perish

Cattle Decapitation

Abysmal Dawn

Animals As Leaders

Internal Corrosion

and Thrown Into Exile

Barnett had this to say about the show:

“In any form that we can generate funds, support and just simply the Bushido spirit to all those affected by this we will be successful and keep the sun forever rising in Japan.”

All Shall Perish added:

“We would like to personally thank Josh Barnett for inviting us to play this very special Japanese relief benefit show. What happened over there was a travesty and while it’s easy to not think about the events that took place because we are so far away, we hope to remind people how much help is still needed.”
