PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m going to keep this short since I feel a few more posts of this kind are coming down the pike. There are some cool acts performing at this one and wow I am going to give my cameras a heart attack if I end up being one of the Online Metal Media in attendance. I guess I can say that I am the most excited for Alice Cooper, Ace Frehley, Overkill, Doro and the mighty Twisted Sister if I can admit anything this early. The Festival also takes place the week before NY Comic Con for me if my calendar is correct. So what do you readers think about this latest announcement. Let me know in the comments section below.
