Friday the 13th fans will likely already be aware of Ari Lehman and his awesome band First Jason. But for those who are unfamiliar with their work, read on!
“First Jason” are a heavy metal band that creates “Friday the 13th” parody music. Their latest video, “Kill For Mother” was released last year, and it is a TUNE! For those unfamiliar with frontman Ari Lehman, he is the original Jason Voorhees (aka The Boy In the Lake) from the 1980 horror classic, Friday the 13th. The song, “Kill For Mother” is off their newly released album, “Lord of the Lake”.
I’m sure you’ll agree, these guys are AWESOME! A seasoned recording artist and professional musician, Ari saw a great opportunity to give Jason Voorhees a musical voice on the Punk and Metal scene and created First Jason specifically for Horror Fans, especially the fans of Jason Voorhees and “Friday the 13th”.
The band has performed in Punk/Metal clubs, Film Festivals and Horror Conventions throughout the United States as well as various cities around Europe. Currently on hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, they are due to resume their tour toward the end of the year.
