The Details: The Metal Alliance has returned to NYC and this year’s decimation comes at the hands of the headlining Overkill who will find some support from the mighty Crowbar, Havok, Black Fast and Invidia. Feel free to insert a whopping big “WHEW” here. We’ve enjoyed some truly killer Metal Alliance appearances over the years and think that this one is going to shake this venue to the foundation. Thanks to the fine folks in the Marketing division, we are going to put a couple of lucky fans into the show on the house. That lets you have more money for merchandise which is never a bad thing. Check out the details on how to participate.
When and Where: Wednesday, September 13th @ Irving Plaza
To Participate: I’ve decided to keep this an easy one and by saying that I mean I will be sticking to my usual formula of you readers giving me “3” things that you like most about the band if you have heard them already and if you are a newbie just give me “3” things that you are most interested in about their performance. Perhaps there are albums that “spoke” to you or concert appearances that sent you to the music shop to snag some of the band members earlier works. Just give me three solid answers and how important it is to be at this show. I know I make you work but I work here too so whining about the process will not win out at all LOL. Make this good reading because the stuff remains on the website and can likely inspire new fans as well on how our freebies work. Writing “because they slay dude” is just too un-original and boring. I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer. Kindly review some guidelines before entering your submission. Extra credit is welcome of course if you’d like to laud the greatness of the other performers as well. We don’t have a lot of tickets for this one.

Though the Summertime Blues haven’t quite hit us, the time has come to start sharing the announcements of the tours that will bring us into the Fall and what better one to start with than the mighty “Metal Alliance Tour”. Check out this years poster, dates and official press release. I’ll close it all up with some thoughts afterwards. Let’s go.
