The Cro-Mags are legends of the NYHC scene and are considered one of the first groups to showcase elements of Thrash Metal into their Hardcore Punk sound. Back in 1986 when they first released “The Age Of Quarrel”, the NYHC scene was as much a lifestyle as it was a musical movement. This show will surely bring their sound to new and legacy fans and also deliver tunes fromSheer Terror, Brain Slug, Rude Awakening and Born Annoying. Lace up those boots my friends, it is going to be a swirling pit in the venue for this one and thanks to the fine folks at Highline Ballroom some of the PiercingMetal Fans are going to get to see the show for free.

“Happy Halloween New York City!!!!” Oh wait……that was months ago so why am I wishing it to you all with December well underway. Let me explain. Recently that nasty storm Sandy really did a number on the city and in its wake many shows were cancelled while others rescheduled to later dates and this finds the mighty Misfits doing their annual Halloween show just in time for the Christmas Slay-son…. The band will be joined by Attack, Japanther and Heart Of The Matter to make it all the more interesting. I wonder how many fans will be showing up for this Horrorday Celebration in costume. Perhaps this will see the beginning of a “Merry Mayhem Misfits Christmas” theme of shows like we find Twisted Sister doing these last few years. All I know is that I am excited to be attending as press and thanks to the fine folks at the Highline Ballroom some of the PiercingMetal fans will be joining in for the fun.
Rockstar Energy Drink is proud to present The Infamous Tour that brings Motionless In White to the headlining stage and finds Chelsea Grin, Stick To Your Gun, Upon This Dawning, and Crown The Empire along as supporting acts. This is sure to be a thrill a minute Metalcore show and thanks to the fine folks at Livenation, I am excited to be able to put a few of our PiercingMetal readers into the show. The event starts early and fans are not going to want to miss a second of it.
“The Birthday Massacre are a fantastically interesting Gothic band from Toronto, Canada who formed in 1999 originally under the name Imagica. According to the band history, they named themselves after a Clive Barker tale but switched over to The Birthday Massacre in 2001 to avoid any problems with another band who used a similar name. Somehow I think the group made the best decision and for years since the change, their singer Chibi and the gang have entertained all the ghouls and boys that find their music of interest with album after album of their brand of melody.” This Saturday, December 1st, The Birthday Massacre arrives in NYC once again as a part of a Vampirefreaks.com extravaganza and their bringing along William Control, Aesthetic Perfection and Creature Feature as supporting acts. I’ve only managed to see TBM (which I will refer to them from now on for the sake of typing) once in concert and I had a great time so that makes me excited to offer my readers the chance to enjoy this unique show thanks to the incredible folks at Livenation. Yep. Free show on us my fiends. Isn’t that special? Continue reading Want To See The Birthday Massacre in NYC on 12/1/2012?→
