Armenia Hosts Persian Heavy Metal Fest

A Persian metal festival takes place in the Caucasus. Yerevan, the capital city of Armenia and one of the world’s oldest cities, dates back to 4,000 BC. Ten top Iranian bands will perform for their fans on one stage for the first time in history of Metal Music. Since Armenia pulled out of the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 due to political objections over host country Azerbaijan, and now that they’re a mecca for Iranians with anger offload via metal thrashing, they’re the coolest country of the year so far.
