PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since the press release came with only a visual, I’d have to say that I am incredibly curious about this new Supergroup. To be brutally honest with you all I love this kind of thing, and especially when it has an identity like this one. Having grown up on comic books and science fiction and monster movies, this is right up my alley. Let’s face it, I already listen to a band dressed like a nightmarish Ronald McDonald and another that dress up as dinosaurs and sing children’s Metal songs in Finnish and did I mention the cover band that dresses like The Transformers? This will be interesting to see on the live stage for sure and I mean that whenever such things return to being a normal way of life. Right now, I think we have a bit of a wait for such happenings. What do you readers think about this new announcement? Will you be willing to check such a mystical project out? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time.
