Bompas & Parr join up with Heavy Metal Bowling for a BBQ nightSteering very far away from the jellies that they're best known for, Bompas and Parr's next feast will see them linking up with Heavy Metal Bowling at Finsbury Park's Rowan's Bowling Lanes with their own "Metal BBQ". The whole thing sounds decidedly barmy. In a very good way. 

In between throws to the soundtrack of Black Sabbath, Electric Wizard, Elder, The Sword, Slayer, Sleep, Metallica - you'll be able to try barbeque with meats smoked over chopped down prepared drumsticks from legendary drummers. As Harry Parr says - "Unctuous meats and triumphant vegan kebabs are smoked with the burning hickory drumsticks of metal legends. Taste the glory, savour the sweat.”

There will also be...

  • A condiment castle,
  • Strippers "performing the sensually choreographed Ten Pin Berserker". The mind quite literally boggles.
  • Balls blessed in blood
  • A dance routine and ritual to invoke the gods of bowling with pyrotechnics
  • A skull cup trophy for the best hair whips

And if you finish the evening victorious, you'll walk away with the same model of sword used by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Conan the Barbarian.

They'll be revealing the Metal BBQ menu and which drummers’ sticks will be cast on the pyre on October 31 - so we'll update with full details then. In the meantime, they're giving away the bowling ball (pictured) to any band who donates a drumstick and metal recipe. The best recipe will win a custom-made, marbled ball.

Heavy Metal Bowling and Metal BBQ will be at Rowan's, 10 Stroud Green Rd, Finsbury Park, London N4 2DF, between 7pm and 11pm on 20th November. Tickets will be available on the door on a first come first serve basis. Follow Bompas & Parr on Twitter for more details.
