It was only back in January that we shared the trailer for the second season of “American Gods” which airs on the Starz Network and if you missed that trailer please just click HERE to be up to date with the rest of us. This season begins tonight on the Starz network which is a premium channel from your cable provider and it will be episodic as opposed to something that you can sit and binge. Let’s take another look at the premise and casting along with the poster for the season.

The Premise: When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he enters a world he does not understand and meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday.

He finds himself in a hidden world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods, including Technology and Media. In a grand plan to combat the threat, Mr. Wednesday attempts to unite the Old Gods to defend their existence and rebuild the influence that they have lost, leaving Shadow struggling to accept this new world and his place in it.

By The All Spark!! The Cybertronic Spree Does Led Zep’s “Immigrant Song”

As you read this quick video share, I am actually wandering the aisles of the Penn Plaza Pavilion for the annual Big Apple Comic Con. It’s a fun event and let’s be keep the cosplayers happy with numerous Instagram features on our PiercingMetalNYC account (please follow us if you aren’t already). This past Wednesday the guys at my local comic book shop were showing each other videos and one was discussing The Cybertronic Spree and as a longtime fan of The Transformers franchise, I just had to share this relatively new clip with you all. Take a look down below and then learn some more about the band.

About The Band: The Cybertronic Spree is a band of Transformers who perform classic cartoon, videogame, and anime theme songs at full volume. Their metal anthems, based around the soundtrack from the 1986 animated film, The Transformers: The Movie, have since transformed into a one-of-a-kind live show that has audiences singing along.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Over the course of my fifteen plus years of music journalism, I’ve witnessed bands dressed as Horror Movie monsters (Lordi), Ronald McDonald Land Characters from Hell (Mac Sabbath) and even seen a whole lot more that I will speak of at another time. Simply put this is right up my alley since its so absurd but yet awesome and interesting at the same time. There isn’t much to say about the video itself since its a performance clip but this looks like the kind of band that needs to come to NYC and play events like the NY Comic Con or Anime NYC. Since I love a good visual being a KISS fan for several decades, I love the look of the Cybertronic Spree and hope that they will choose to adventure to new worlds like our own. What did you think of this one? Chime in down below lest you fail Megatron yet again…..
