The Details: It’s been a little while since we’ve done a concert ticket giveaway contest here on the PiercingMetal website and with the legendary thrashers of Flotsam and Jetsam paying our Metal Metropolis a visit, I figured it was high time to throw one together. Over the years I’ve caught the band a couple of times and while having enjoyed a number of tunes would not consider myself the most ardent study of their work. It’s shows like these that help the interest grow and its awesome that they are still delivering the goods for the Metal Legions. The NYC show will feature a bevy of supporting acts (Dead By Wednesday, Magus Beast and The Hard Way) and thanks to the Marketing team at Live Nation, a few of our lucky readers will be seeing this show for free. The rules on how to participate are below.
When and Where: Wednesday, May 22nd at Gramercy Theatre (127 E 23rd St) 7PM Show
To Participate: I’m going to keep this an easy one for you and stick with our premise of telling me three things that you enjoy most about the band Flotsam and Jetsam and why you need to be at this show. Answers should have some meat on their bones and be better than “because they rule dude” – That stuff is a waste of time to me. Of course it’s important to follow some guidelines to make sure we are on the same page. Continue reading Win A Ticket For Flotsam & Jetsam @ Gramercy Theatre On 5/22/2019→
As Friday continues to chug along, there is nothing like a good old fashioned label signing announcement to share with the readership. With that, let’s take a look at the recent news from AFM Records who have just signed Gus G. and his band Firewind to a worldwide deal.
The Press Release:
Greek power metal icons Firewind, the band of former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Gus G., have signed a worldwide record deal with German metal label AFM Records. The collaboration between the band and AFM already started with the latest FIREWIND album “Immortals”, which AFM released in the North American territory back then. Subsequently, GUS G. signed with AFM to also release his solo albums together, and now we are happy to announce that also FIREWIND’s future albums will be released worldwide by AFM.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Evergrey is always a solid concert experience so if you’ve not seen them yet I suggest that you do so. The NYC visit is at the Marlin Room and that place has a great vibe to it when its laid out properly for the gig. Personally speaking I haven’t thought of Seven Kingdoms in some time but remembered seeing their guitarist helping out with the bands last go round so there is some positive connection there. It will be interesting to see what melodies they have up their sleeves and as far as both Need and Ascendia are concerned, each band is a brand new thing for me. So what do you readers think of this new tour? Are you interested? Are you not? Let me know down in the comments section below. See you next time.
I was perusing the web looking up some bands that I had not seen in quite a while and ended up on the page for the band Lordi who as luck would have it, had just announced a new and exciting tour for the USA that would be coming in 2017. Considering we are in July at the moment, its hard to even imagine 2017 as something to be paying attention to but there we go. I’ve embedded the bands official statement along with the poster and some biography information since I am sure a lot of you readers do not know what to expect from this particular band. Here we go.
The Details: Udo Dirkschneider is the original voice behind the classic tunes of the mighty Accept and it’s been a long time since he’s rocked and rolled in the USA. It’s been so long a time that even I don’t remember when it was that I saw him last but since then he’s moved on to a prolifically busy solo career and is bringing us a sure to be rocking show. He’ll be bringing along Halcyon Way for direct support and NYC will have local Metal flavor from Winter Nights. All this makes me excited to let you know that thanks to the fine folks at Livenation some lucky PiercingMetal readers are going to get to enjoy the show for free.
