Late last year, a group called Metal for Cancer released a new digital single called ‘Lets Unite in Rock’ featuring an all-star cast exclusively written and produced by Henrik Flyman to raise funds for cancer research.
Cancer is a disease that touches people from all walks of life and the heavy metal community is no exception. Many Hard Rock and Heavy Metal legends have sadly lost their battle to this devastating disease.
The song starts off with a riff which pays homage to the late Ronnie James Dio and lyrically uses typical heavy metal imagery describing the heavy metal community uniting to defeat cancer which in the song is portrayed as ‘the beast’.
Metal for Cancer are doing their part in fighting cancer. They are contributing to cancer fundraising by asking people to spend a couple of dollars to purchase their song. They are then donating 100% of their proceeds to the ACRF.
You can purchase the song from itunes. To keep up to date with the wonderful work this group are doing, click here to join the 2,500 people already following them on Facebook.
Big thanks to all those involved in Metal for Cancer and for your generous support of cancer research!
