I have to admit that the last thing that I am thinking about a few days after Labor Day is Christmastime but when you learn that the legendary Metal God of Judas Priest, Mr. Rob Halford has revealed the first taste of his upcoming Christmas album then you make an exception. It’s been just over ten years since Halford released his first Christmas album with “Winter Songs” (and that was reviewed way back when on THIS POST). The new album is called “Celestial” and this in-studio performance clip is a video for the song “Donner and Blitzen”. Those are two of Santa’s flying reindeer in case you didn’t know that for some reason. Let’s watch.
[MESSAGE FROM THE CLERGY] We wish to inform you Ghost’s song “Faith” has a deliciously disturbing lyric video ready for viewing.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: It’s not common for me to post the lyric videos unless they are something interesting, and well, when it comes to the band Ghost, the word interesting comes part and parcel with anything that they do. The song “Faith” is a solid track and comes from their hit “Prequelle” album which features Cardinal Copia on vocals with the assorted and mysterious cast of players that make up The Nameless Ghouls. The video behind the lyrics is a brain surgery of some kind and as I am more squeamish than I’d care to admit I had to look away a few times. I’ve never been too good at stuff like that. As you members of the Flock are aware, Ghost continues to remain in the news of the day on websites such as this one as they’ve recently announced a European tour (seen HERE) and are set to embark on their North American dates which were outlined HERE. Closing up I wonder what you readers think about the latest lyric video, you can chime in down below as you enjoy it and determine which shows you are planning on attending. I’d suggest that you bring the kids along with you because perhaps in the future they’ll do stuff like these talented high school choir members did in this Video Post. Until next time, which will be soon since its way early in the morning.

The folks in the band Hellyeah have unveiled their brand new video for their song “333” and the cooking track had this clip filmed in Duffs Bar which is located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Let’s check it out and offer up some opinion about the clip afterwards.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Speaking of the clip primarily I had to say that I liked this one a lot since it was done in a popular local establishment that is known for catering to the Metal Legions. The clip flips back and forth to shots of Chad walking the mean streets of Brooklyn to clips inside the popular bar where the fans in attendance surround the players (Kyle, Tom and Christian) and look to be having an excellent time. They turned this around quick as it wasn’t too long ago I saw a call to arms across the Metalheads of NYC to come to the famous bar for a video filming. The track is rather good and at times cooks at a great velocity. The drumming on the track and of course the album is the last recorded work by the late great Vinnie Paul who we lost back in 2018. As the song plays we see representations of Paul around the bar and the songs video closes with a respectful memorial to him. He will be missed for sure and was a larger than life personality for the Metal scene. The song itself moves along rather quickly and while it is named “333” it also runs for three minutes and thirty three seconds. Coincidence? I think not. I’ll aim for discussing the musicality of the track soon so stay tuned for that. Let’s all try to rally behind the track in honor of Vinnie Paul.

As you read this quick video share, I am actually wandering the aisles of the Penn Plaza Pavilion for the annual Big Apple Comic Con. It’s a fun event and let’s be keep the cosplayers happy with numerous Instagram features on our PiercingMetalNYC account (please follow us if you aren’t already). This past Wednesday the guys at my local comic book shop were showing each other videos and one was discussing The Cybertronic Spree and as a longtime fan of The Transformers franchise, I just had to share this relatively new clip with you all. Take a look down below and then learn some more about the band.
About The Band: The Cybertronic Spree is a band of Transformers who perform classic cartoon, videogame, and anime theme songs at full volume. Their metal anthems, based around the soundtrack from the 1986 animated film, The Transformers: The Movie, have since transformed into a one-of-a-kind live show that has audiences singing along.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Over the course of my fifteen plus years of music journalism, I’ve witnessed bands dressed as Horror Movie monsters (Lordi), Ronald McDonald Land Characters from Hell (Mac Sabbath) and even seen a whole lot more that I will speak of at another time. Simply put this is right up my alley since its so absurd but yet awesome and interesting at the same time. There isn’t much to say about the video itself since its a performance clip but this looks like the kind of band that needs to come to NYC and play events like the NY Comic Con or Anime NYC. Since I love a good visual being a KISS fan for several decades, I love the look of the Cybertronic Spree and hope that they will choose to adventure to new worlds like our own. What did you think of this one? Chime in down below lest you fail Megatron yet again…..

It was exactly five months to the day when Ghost unveiled their “Instagram Story Video” for their at the time new single “Dance Macabre” and I shared that with the readership on THIS LINK. It was fun to see the band using the uber popular social networking site to their advantage and rather amusing to see all the different reactions of assorted music personality in regards to the track. Now its time for a brand new video for said song and one that is the kind many had expected in the first place. Let’s take a look.
