Well, if she isn’t slaying Lycans or kicking ass in another epic action flick, Kate Beckinsale – who you may know from her role in the Underworld movies – likes to chill out to Texas’ Kublai Khan. As reported by our friends over at MetalSucks, Beckinsale recently shared on her Instagram a fun little get together she had with Nina Kate – actress and latex fetishwear designer.

As seen in the video below, Beckinsale and Kate had themselves an awesome Galentine’s sleepover, dressing up in fun outfits, dancing around, lounging about, and coloring alongside an adorable kitty and some gnarly as hell hardcore. Just two friends vibing out to crushing drumbeats and harsh vocals – seems like a delightfully chill time.

It’s always sort of bizarre when a big celebrity shouts out a metal band – but you know what, we’re thankful for that! The more folks into metal the better! While we’ve seen the likes of Kanye West rocking a Cradle of Filth t-shirt or Kendall Jenner repping Slayer, it’s sick to see one of Hollywood’s most bad ass action stars throw on some breakneck hardcore music for a band that absolutely has put in the work!

Since forming in 2009, TX’s Kublai Khan have delivered four killer records, their most recent release being that of 2019’s Absolute. The band have a new EP on the horizon – Lowest Form of Animal – which arrives April 11th via Rise Records. Along with pre-ordering the EP, Kublai Khan have a video out for their track “Swan Song,” which you can find below. The video also features Terror’s Scot Vogel. While you’re at it, it’s probably a great time to revisit Underworld too.

You can also catch Kublai Khan on their upcoming tour with Knocked Loose later this year!
