Win A Ticket For The CEG Cosplay Cruise On 10/6/2017

The Details: Anyone who attends the massive NY Comic Con event knows that it’s a mega-dose of awesome sights and scenes and colorful characters of many kinds. An all day wandering of such a happening finds the attendees needing to unwind a little bit and that makes this latest contest something awesome to showcase as CEG Presents their annual “Cosplay Cruise”. This year’s event will feature Guest Hosts like noted cosplayers Soni Aralynn, Kristen Lanae, Brit Bliss along with Ming Chen from Comic Book Men. There will be prizes and special events across the journey, a DJ and a cash bar and concessions for the 18+ attendee and thanks to the awesome promoters at CEG Presents, PiercingMetal is going to be sending a few lucky Cosplayers onto the high seas (well, out into the Hudson River to be more precise) to enjoy this event. Read more about the location and how to participate down below.

When and Where: Friday, October 6th 8pm @ Circle Line Cruises (West 42nd Street and 12th Avenue).
To Participate: This event contest is for the Cosplayers only and not the “Cosplay Curious” and with that being the case I’ve fashioned a few questions that you need to answer as your entry. They are pretty involved so you might want to jot them all down on a memo and then past it into the response on the contest to make sure you don’t lose connection – Here we go.

A: What is the best Cosplay that you have ever done and why?
B: How long did your finest work take you to complete?
C: Name three different Cosplays you have done over the years.
D: Tell me some Cosplays that you hope to do in the near future.
E: What Cosplay do you envision bringing to the Cosplay Cruise if you are one of our winners?
F: Show us a visual of yourself in one of your awesome outfits by embedding a link to an image (it can be to your public Facebook Page, Twitter or Instagram.

Win A Ticket For Stryper @ Stage 48 On 7/24/2016

Back in early June, Stryper was set to perform at the Stage 48 venue but due to circumstances beyond their control the show was postponed and rescheduled for this new date that you see below on the poster. I’m happy to announce that in addition to the rescheduled show, there is a new contest to get some more fans into the event. The contest below is exactly the same as the last one that we featured so check it out.

Poster - Stryper at Stage 48 - Reschedule 716

The Details: It’s always great when those Soldiers Under God’s Command drop by our Metal Metropolis for a show and once again they will be bringing their great live sound to the Stage 48 venue on the West Side of town. Though I’ve said this before I think that the attack of the yellow and black keeps many fans on a positive Metal path and while we will surely be getting some new greatness from the most recent album “Fallen”, we are closing in on the 30th Anniversary of their classic “To Hell With The Devil” album from 1986 as well. I can assure you that this is going to be a fun night of music from beginning to end and will even feature some talented local players as the opening bands. Now, add to this coolness the absolute levels of awesome in the fact that the Marketing Team behind Stage 48 who have asked PiercingMetal to hold this contest and put some people in the room for free. This excites me almost as much as the fact that the band still possesses all original members still in 2016. Read more on how to participate in this one.

When and Where: Sunday, July 24th @ Stage 48 (605 West 48nd Street, NYC)

Win A Ticket For Sonata Arctica @ Stage 48 On 4/3/2016

Poster - Sonata Arctica at Stage 48 - 2016

The Details: It seems like only yesterday that I first heard the Metal sonic power that is Sonata Arctica and no matter how often I see them, I am impressed again and again. Many years ago they became one of my very favorite of the Metal bands that were coming out of Finland and my first ever listen was with “Winterheart’s Guild”. I must have played those songs a hundred times since then. Recently, the band celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the album “Ecliptica” and have just finished a tour supporting the mighty Nightwish. Now that this tour has ended I am glad to find the band being able to offer fans some headlining dates that will surely impress the masses. That being said I am happy to announce that the band will once again be returning to the Stage 48 club in NYC and thanks to the promoters, some of the PiercingMetal readers are going to get to enjoy the show for free. Joining them at this NYC stop will be several local acts if you should feel like arriving early to check it all out. Read more below on how this works.

When and Where: Sunday, April 3rd at Stage 48 – 7:30pm (605 West 48th Street NYC)
