The latest installment of FORBIDDEN guitarist Craig Locicero‘s “Omega Wave” podcast features a discussion with former MACHINE HEAD, TESTAMENT, SPIRALARMS and current ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT drummer Chris Kontos about the the A.F.A.R. coalition (Alliance For Artist Rescue) Chris founded. A.F.A.R.‘s mission “is to assist metalhead refugees that are in dangerous cultural situations overseas; to help them settle in the U.S. by hosting and finding them jobs upon their arrival to the [San Francisco] Bay Area.”
Chris and his partners head up a selfless organization that has already helped bring artists from Iraq, Iran, and South Africa into the United States. It is a noble and amazing effort that should be respected and shared with everyone in the metal community.
