Win A Ticket To See Metal Alliance Tour @ Irving Plaza On 9/13/2017

The Details: The Metal Alliance has returned to NYC and this year’s decimation comes at the hands of the headlining Overkill who will find some support from the mighty Crowbar, Havok, Black Fast and Invidia. Feel free to insert a whopping big “WHEW” here. We’ve enjoyed some truly killer Metal Alliance appearances over the years and think that this one is going to shake this venue to the foundation. Thanks to the fine folks in the Marketing division, we are going to put a couple of lucky fans into the show on the house. That lets you have more money for merchandise which is never a bad thing. Check out the details on how to participate.

When and Where: Wednesday, September 13th @ Irving Plaza

To Participate: I’ve decided to keep this an easy one and by saying that I mean I will be sticking to my usual formula of you readers giving me “3” things that you like most about the band if you have heard them already and if you are a newbie just give me “3” things that you are most interested in about their performance. Perhaps there are albums that “spoke” to you or concert appearances that sent you to the music shop to snag some of the band members earlier works. Just give me three solid answers and how important it is to be at this show. I know I make you work but I work here too so whining about the process will not win out at all LOL. Make this good reading because the stuff remains on the website and can likely inspire new fans as well on how our freebies work. Writing “because they slay dude” is just too un-original and boring. I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer. Kindly review some guidelines before entering your submission. Extra credit is welcome of course if you’d like to laud the greatness of the other performers as well. We don’t have a lot of tickets for this one.

Win A Ticket To See Doro @ B.B. King’s On 9/10/2017

The Details: Doro Pesch is truly a Metal Queen and for more than thirty years she has been delivering the goods with her bands. We all learned of her from Germany’s Warlock and this tour is a special one as it celebrates the 30th Anniversary of that bands “Triumph and Agony” album. I understand that Doro will be delivering this release in full during her shows along with numerous other hits and having seen her so many times can say that you don’t want to miss this gig at B.B. King Blues Club. With that being said I am honored to announce that thanks to the fine folks in Marketing that some lucky PiercingMetal readers will be seeing this show for free. Check out the details on how to participate.

Plus I think Doro herself will be looking at this contest and you ALWAYS want to impress such a legendary figure. Writing “because they rock dude” is just too un-original and boring. I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer. Kindly review some guidelines before entering your submission.

Win A Ticket To See Haken @ Highline Ballroom On 9/2/2017

The Details: Considering that the band is celebrating their 10th Anniversary I must admit to being way behind on this one, but there is no time like the present to get into some new and exciting music. Haken is a very fascinating listen in the world of Progressive Metal and with their appearance at the intimate Highline Ballroom you are not going to want to miss out on it. Thanks to the fine folks in the Marketing Division of the venue, we are proud to be putting some of our ardent readers into this show for free. Check out the details on how to participate.

Win A Ticket To See Venom Inc. @ Gramercy Theatre On 9/2/2017

The Details: In today’s Metal world there are a lot of bands that play the same music with different members. Over the last few years we had two Great Whites, two L.A. Guns and even two Queensyrches for a while and now there are two groups playing the legendary sounds of the band Venom. This one is probably the most interesting of the recent crop because it features two original members and other members who served in the band when other folks moved onto different projects. I am speaking of the rising in prominence Venom Inc. who will deliver not only the bands classics but also some new throttling Metal as well. They are bringing this “Bloodstained Earth” tour to NYC and its sure to be a deadly time and when you add to the fact that the tour also features Goatwhore and Toxic Holocaust there is no other place in the city that you are going to want to be. Thanks to the fine folks in Marketing, we are putting a couple of diehard fans into the show for free and that excites me greatly. That lets you have more money for merchandise which is never a bad thing. Check out the details on how to participate.

When and Where: Saturday, September 2nd @ Gramercy Theatre (127 East 23rd St., NYC)

To Participate: I’ve decided to keep this an easy one and by saying that I mean I will be sticking to my usual formula of you readers giving me “3” things that you like most about the band if you have heard them already and if you are a newbie just give me “3” things that you are most interested in about their performance.

I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer. Kindly review some guidelines before entering your submission. We don’t have a lot of tickets for this one so you better make it good. By the way, we know Venom Inc. is a “new” band so album references would be to their new work or Venom classics that the members appeared on.

Win A Ticket To See Marduk @ Gramercy Theatre On 8/29/2017

The Details: Let sound the trumpets over the Inferno for Marduk is returning to NYC at long last! The bands last couple of forays were mired in “administrative” issues but now they are here. The bands brand of Black Metal is one of the most incendiary on the scene and if you’ve not seen them live yet you don’t know what you are missing. This tour finds them joined by the one and only Incantation and Abysmal Dawn who are two bands that you don’t want to miss if you are hitting the show. I haven’t seen them in a few years myself so I am very excited about the chance to do so and to also share the news that thanks to the fine folks in the Marketing division, we are going to put a couple of lucky fans into the show on the house. That lets you have more money for merchandise which is never a bad thing. Check out the details on how to participate.
