Win To See Destruction @ Webster Hall’s Marlin Room On 3/19/2014

Poster - Destruction at Marlin Room - 2014

The Details: While America has its own Big Four for Thrash Metal, when it comes to the offerings from the German side there are only three titans of Thrash and one of the biggest providers of the craft is very clearly the mighty Destruction. As a matter of fact, the press often lauds them as “One Of The Three Kings of Teutonic Thrash Metal” and this is rightly so because for thirty years now the band has been decimating their fans with intense tunes. Fronted by the mighty Schmier, the band returns to the states after a couple of years with support from Krisiun and Widow. Local support will open all shows and its with great pleasure that I announce this contest that comes care of the Excess DB Entertainment group for our fans as we continue to celebrate March Metal Madness here on PiercingMetal. Read on.

When and Where: Wednesday March 19th @ The Marlin Room at Webster Hall (125 East 11th St. NYC)

To Participate: This should be an easy one for you. Tell me three reasons that you need to be at this show and do make them good ones. Saying that the package rules is a given and sadly so is saying that you are broke since we are ALL in that corner nowadays. I feel your pain but give me something to work with and I will be responding to a few of the comments that I like the best. Be sure to enter your full real name and provide a current email address in the event we need to reach you about this contest. Enter only once as comments do get moderated and perhaps subscribe to them as well so you know for sure if you win. Bring it on.

Restrictions: All of the PiercingMetal contests are open to our loyal readers, Facebook Page likers and Twitter Followers but that being said we are still looking for the new names first so EVERYONE gets the chance to enjoy a show on the provider and us. Since we never let on how many we have its always smart to send a submission just in case there is the room. We do keep track of the winner list but please be aware that if you had won something over the last month of contests your chances are less likely. This includes our Scott Ian, Queensryche, Hottest Chicks of Hard Rock and others. Remember that Guest and Anonymous submissions are not eligible either.

  1. 1. Would be Nice to see Destruction and Krisiun again they were fucking amazing last time i saw those two bands.

    2. Its been a while seen i been at a show.

    3. Late a Birthday gift for me. (3/14/87)

    1. Good stuff Joseph so congratulations as you have won a ticket to see Destruction on Wednesday at The Marlin Room at Webster Hall. Consider this a Happy Birthday present from PiercingMetal also in some sense LOL. Please stay tuned for the details which will show as a new comment from me on how you claim it that night.

  2. 1. I missed the last few Destruction shows because of school commitments
    2.Infernal Overkill is one of my all time favorite thrash albums
    3. It would be hilarious to see Schmier complain about people stage diving into his mic stand again like at the Highline Ballroom show a few years ago

    1. Good stuff Max so congratulations as you have won a ticket to see Destruction on Wednesday at The Marlin Room at Webster Hall. Let’s consider this the end to your streak of missing Destruction in concert in NYC. Please stay tuned for the details which will show as a new comment from me on how you claim it that night.

  3. 1. Destruction is part of the German teuronic thrash metal trio, next to Sodom and Kreator.

    2. Krisiun destroys live, one of my favourite bands to see; also great guys to meet in person.

    3. I like the Marlin Room at Webster Hall, I’m happy they started hosting metal shows there.

  4. 1. I haven’t missed an area Destruction show since the reformation in the late 90s and i really don’t want to miss them again. Venues i saw them at included Obsessions (NJ), Krome (NJ), L’amour, Studio B, BB King’s, Knitting Factory & Highline Ballroom.
    2. Destruction enlightened my vocabulary by introducing me to the word “bestial” as well as influenced my wardrobe as i still frequently wear bullet belts around my shoulder.
    3. When i was younger i would often entertain party guests by imitating Schmier’s unique high pitched scream. I would be happy to conjure said screams out of my blackened lungs now but i sound more like Krisiun’s Alex Camargo these days.

  5. 1- the fact they have krisiun on this tour again with destruction is great and brutal.

    2- one of my favorite trash metal band from Germany is back after all the problems they have in their last tour in the United state.

    3- it will be great to go to see this legendary band (destruction) once again follow by one of the greatest death metal band from Brazil.

  6. 1. As you stated the package rules. In fact, the Destruction/Krisiun package ruled back in 2009. I went to see that tour 3 times: Crazy Donkey, The Chance in Poughkeepsie, and BB Kings. People who remember Schmier complaining about people diving into his mics at the Highline Ballroom show, should’ve been at the Crazy Donkey show. Schmier was not happy with the sound and yelled, “I don’t want to hear noise, I want to hear metal!” He then proceeded to walk up to each of his 3 mics, throw them on the ground and made his roadie pick them all up. I think Schmier’s “zero f**ks attitude” is a part of his charm.

    2. Mike Sifringer’s riffs are some of the best written in thrash metal. He and Dave Carlo of Razor are two of the most underrated guitarists of the genre, and don’t get nearly the credit they deserve.

    3. Krisiun is consistent and always delivers the goods. I think a lot has to do with them all being brothers and sticking together since day one. They are more focused on creating great music, instead of dollar signs like we are seeing more and more musicians dealing with today.

    1. Good stuff Daniel so congratulations as you have won a ticket to see Destruction on Wednesday at The Marlin Room at Webster Hall. Please stay tuned for the details which will show as a new comment from me on how you claim it that night.

  7. Destruction are one of the best of the three German thrash metal bands. Every album they seem to get better. Krisiun are the new version of what Sepultura were. This show also shows that three bands of different styles can put on a killer show. Destruction being Thrash Metal, Krisiun being Death Metal, and Widow being Power Metal. Three of my favorite styles of metal in one night. Thats why I want to see this show. Its for the different styles you’ll get in one night.

    1. Good stuff Bill so congratulations as you have won a ticket to see Destruction on Wednesday at The Marlin Room at Webster Hall. Please stay tuned for the details which will show as a new comment from me on how you claim it that night.

  8. Alright my fine Metal Legions that brings me to the close of our Destruction contest as our supply is far less than the demand. Congratulations to our winners who will need their ID on the night of the show and ask for the Venue House List. Their name should have a PiercingMetal reference for the contest. Should you encounter any issue please politely ask for a venue representative and cite how this was done in coordination with their promoters. I will be at the show as well so do say hello if you see me around.

    For those non-winners please be aware that both Metalfier and Winter Nights are selling tickets via their Facebook pages and would love to have you in their numbers.
