“Happy Halloween” 2018: Rockers Divulge Their Favorite Horror Films

Last year, I had asked what the very favorite Horror films might be among a wide assortment of the musicians that I had met over the last few years while covering shows and special events. The fun disclosures can be reviewed HERE for those who are new to our offerings and might have missed that when it first ran. Yesterday, I decided to do it again with some of the people that I didn’t get around to that last time and while there are only a few, its still fun to find out what spooks some of our talented friends. Let’s get down to business in finding out what some of Hard Rock and Metal’s best and brightest find to be their favorite and scariest films and what makes this be the case. Scroll down…..if…you…dare……Bwahahahaha!!!!

Margarita Monet (Edge Of Paradise): What i love about Horror films is that they are so much fun to watch with with friends, I wouldn’t watch them alone, it’s way more fun to be terrified together. I love the classics like the “A Nightmare On Elm Street”. But for my favorite, I would have to go with “The Ring”, and not just because the movie was so great, it had all the right bone chilling elements, but watching it with my friends in middle school and acting out as the creepy girl coming out of the TV for weeks later, just brings really fun memories about those days, and maybe we’ll give “The Ring 2” a chance.

Alex Skolnick Trio Announces “Europe Unbound” Tour 2017

Earlier today I saw some posts going around about the “Europe Unbound” by the incredible Alex Skolnick Trio. Now you might recall his name as being associated with the mighty Testament and most recently as a part of the Metal Allegiance supergroup and did you know that Alex was also one of the original touring company members for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra? Suffice it to say he is an incredibly talented musician and author and teacher of all manners of guitar wizardry and that makes me more than happy to share what is probably one of my very first European tour announcements. Dig into the poster and yon dates.

*** end of notice ***

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Obviously we cannot be a part of any of these shows unless one of our supporters has several thousand dollars to toss our way and doesn’t need it back at all so that is where you come in as readers of the website in those foreign lands. It is up to you to let us know just how awesome they were during this run of dates. I’ve caught The Trio on numerous occasions over the years and it always impresses me so if you have yet to add this notch to your musical belt then be sure to hit one of these gigs. The Alex Skolnick Trio are Alex, Matt Zebroski and Nathan Peck. What do you think of this notice overall? Should we do more of them when performers we are most passionate about are hitting the road in other parts of the world? Let me know in the comments section below. See you next time.
