PiercingMetal’s “Top Nine” Instagrams For 2019

Greetings my friends, we’ve arrived at the time of the year where people get to showcase their “Top Nine” images on Instagram and this reveal is done when they tabulate all of the likes across your profiles posts. Though I used Instagram quite a bit this past year I really fell behind based on just how many events I was attending. There is only so much time in the day and with major events like the Toy Fair, New York Comic Con and Anime NYC being so loaded with visuals I had my hands full. I’m going to maintain that I felt that I used this social network more than any of the other ones and I often share the images over to our Facebook and Twitter pages to spark up additional engagement. Let’s review.

About These Visuals:
Starting from the top row and working down we’ve got an amazing Nebula cosplayer from the New York Comic Con, the legendary Michael Schenker from a performance at Irving Plaza and a scene from the “Dio Returns” hologram show from afar. Next there is Miku Kobato of the all-girl Japanese Rock band Band-Maid, an amazing black and white statue of Batman from DC Collectibles and a Dave Mustaine from Megadeth statue from Knucklebonz. The last row is more live stuff with faraway visuals from the Original Misfits show and the Stryper show. Closing it all up is a popular cosplayer named Destiny Fomo. Though I was quite happy with the choices, I did expect a few different ones to be presented but the masses have spoken. All photos were taken by me of course. Now let’s examine some of the finer points about the account.

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Diagnosed With Throat Cancer

It was just a short time ago where a scary and startling revelation was made by Megadeth founder, Dave Mustaine on their Official Website and its respective social networks. Please read on.

The Statement:
“I’ve been diagnosed with throat cancer. It’s clearly something to be respected and faced head on – but I’ve faced obstacles before. I’m working closely with my doctors, and we’ve mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate. Treatment has already begun.

Unfortunately, this requires that we cancel most shows this year. The 2019 Megacruise will happen, and the band will be a part of it in some form. All up to date information will be at megadeth.com as we get it. Megadeth will be back on the road ASAP.

Meanwhile, Kiko, David, Dirk and I are in the studio, working on the follow up to Dystopia – which I can’t wait for everyone to hear.

I’m so thankful for my whole team – family, doctors, band members, trainers, and more.

I’ll keep everyone posted.

See you soon,
Dave Mustaine”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I can only add that we are keeping Dave and his family in our thoughts during this trying time. Let’s all hope that by catching it early and with the best treatment that he will beat this illness and be back to doing what he does the very best, delivering socially relevant and ass-kicking Heavy Metal music. Get well soon Dave. We are all pulling for you to do so.
