PiercingMetal Thoughts: This is a great idea and wow, this one is actually happening on my birthday. No, not the PiercingMetal Birthday, that was back in April, but my own real birthday. I might have to fetch myself a bottle of something that I like to drink and tune in to some Finnish Metal. $10 isn’t bad at all and the QA afterward could be interesting as well. Remember that Swallow The Sun also announced a pay to view live streaming and since theirs is in a couple of days I am going to suggest that the interested click HERE to learn more about that one as well. So closing up I wonder what you all think about this news. Will you be tuning in or will you just be counting the days to come for the next chance that you get to see live music on an actual stage. Chime in down below and I will see you next time. Stay safe out there.
