Metal fans are in for a treat this weekend as the Ripped to Shreds promotional team host metal Night II at the Never Turn Back in Caister. This promises to be even bigger and better than the last with two very popular bands from Norwich, Endsoteria and Hollow and also a Metal DJ set. The Ripped to Shreds crew consists of friends Gary Durrant, Craig Pearce and Lee Cheung who started the metal night when they realized there was a lack of venues in the local area for fans of heavy metal music. They have since used all of the profits from Metal Night I to upgrade the equipment in order to give the fans a night to remember. Doors are open at 8pm and there are still some tickets available on the door or they can be purchased at Better Leisure, Great Yarmouth.
