I’m generally not one to do commercial broadcasts here on the PiercingMetal Musings blog, but I will surely make an exception when something that strikes me as cool comes into my line of fire. That being said let’s talk about “The Daily Steel” which is an initiative that was just started today by the fine folks at Metal Wreckage. Here is what I know about from the emails that I have been receiving to laud its benefits and oh yes before we begin, there might be a few of you readers who don’t know what in the hell Metal Wreckage even is yet so let me address that first. Metal Wreckage is a shopping club that focuses exclusively on that which be Metal and you can join it for free (how cool is that). I don’t recall when this club actually had its official launch, but this new “The Daily Steel” is something that has just started off today. Its an obvious play on the word “steal” and I love how its application was used in the Metal sense. Keeping this free to participate in is awesome because there are far too many things that are “pay to play” nowadays and let’s face it, not everyone has extra cash to toss to something to just let them reap some benefits.
The way it works is that you get the chance as a member of the club to purchase one of the daily “Steels” at a certain price for a set amount of time. What are the “Steels” you might ask? Well, from what I see in the emails these deals are special limited edition items, like signed items, special packaged boxed sets, high quality vinyl…..you get the picture? Based on what I have seen coming across my Internet screen I will assume that each of them gets a 24 hour clock or until supplies run dry. It’s the kind of thing that you need to act fast on and can be viewed almost as a Heavy Metal version of Groupon or the similar program that Amazon.com runs. I totally can say how the time is of the essence methodology needs to be applied if you see something that you like because I have missed deals on both of the providers that I just mentioned because I felt that I could “get to it later”. With “The Daily Steel” you snooze and you lose its as simple as that. The “Daily Steels” for this week coming seem to be some pretty cool ones and they are as follows; 9/24 – As I Lay Dying, 9/25 – Anthrax, 9/26 – In This Moment, 9/27 – Six Feet Under, and 9/28 – Baroness. Whew. There appears to be a lot of Metal Blade Records stuff this week which is awesome since there is a “30th Anniversary Event” to attend and document for you readers happening tomorrow that I have been invited to. Don’t worry I will bring that story to you and not leave out a single detail for good measure.
Not much else to say on this, so click the link and sign yourself up so you have the chance to partake in some Metal indulgence. Enjoy and now its back to the regularly scheduled articles, blogging, calendar entries, photos and social networking. Whew. I need a beer.
