The Details: One of the shows that I look forward to each and every Metal year that goes by is the Paganfest America Tour because it brings to the stage an interesting grouping of acts that one will not normally easily see on these shores. Headlining this go round will be Finland’s Ensiferum and they’ll be joined by Tyr (Faroe Islands), Heidevolk (Netherlands), Trollfest (Norway) and Hellsott (USA). I can hardly contain the excitement. That being said, I am proud to announce that in loyal allegiance with the folks at Livenation, that the House of PiercingMetal shall be putting some true warriors into this battle worthy show. Read on how to participate my legions.
When and Where: Sunday April 21st at The Gramercy Theatre (127 East 23rd Street, NYC)
To Participate: About a month ago I did a contest for the Soilwork show and asked the readers to build me the “Ultimate Gothenburg” style Metal band and since that angle worked so well, I am mixing it up a little bit and saying in order to enter this contest to please build me the “Ultimate Pagan Metal” band. Now you have a lot of room with this because not only do we get conventional vocals, guitars, bass and drums but also keyboards, violins, pipes and other interesting instruments. I will be selecting a few of the most interesting submissions so put your clever hat on or sharpen your broadsword in this case and let me have it. Mind you only living musicians can be used and I will want you to tell me why this lineup works best. I’ll be letting the victorious know right below their submission. Remember to enter your full real name and an email address in the comment form so we can properly reach you but don’t put them in the comment itself out of privacy concerns. It also never hurts to subscribe to the comments for the duration of the contest.
Restrictions: While all PiercingMetal.com contests are open to our regional site readers, we do look at new responders first in order to give everyone a fair shot at enjoying a show on the provider and us. Of course we still encourage all to respond because you never know just how many tickets we are offering. Anonymous or Guest submissions while approved are not eligible.

For the last few years this kind of Metal has been among my favorite and there are so many amazing bands to choose from in their mix. This show’s main bands have quite a few releases so I’ve embedded a healthy amount for you to investigate and purchase. All of this will make the invasion of enemy lands a righteous symphony of glory for your armies.
