Making relationships when you first start University can be a hard and stressful experience. Students who are passionate about metal music may find it difficult finding others with the same interests, reason why we have decided to create the Metal Society, where these like-minded students can interact and have fun, finding all that this unique genre has to offer.
We want to create a place where those who enjoy loud distorted guitars, forceful rhythms, dense drums and vigorous vocals, can get together and practice playing this type of music and visit heavy metal shows. We are a welcoming group of people where all come from different backgrounds with different experiences in life, who are happy and willing to learn from anyone else’s experiences.
We intend to support the local metal scene and give students who struggle to find others that like heavy metal a place to feel welcome. We want to give those who enjoy this genre a place where they can talk to each other and discuss topics which are related to heavy metal e.g. what bands they like or what instruments they play and attend local shows.
You can find us on facebook as UON Metal Society.
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students’ Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
