Before a band get's big, they have to start off as a local band. Listeners today are getting "too used" to hearing the top hits on the radio. As a band, you need to start somewhere, and radio station's don't look at local etal enough. WGRD is putting an end to that! For this week's LOCAL METAL MOMENT, we are checking out STONE THE MANIC!
Sadly, I will not being going to Rock On The Range this year...I go EVERY YEAR, but this years line-up sadly didn't impress me as much as the previous years have. For the 90's Grunge fans, ROTR is the place to be. On the other hand, MAYHEM FESTIVAL is for the the METALHEADS!
As I was going through my Bi-Monthly issue of Revolver Magazine, I stumbled across the article of, "Are Heavy Metal Concerts Too Dangerous?" You know what? That is a really good question to ask. I have been to over 250 concerts and counting (Honestly not surprised I am not deaf). I have walked away with a broken toe, bruised body, ripped shirts, and crazy head aches from tons of headbanging. It does go to question, are Metal Shows Too Brutal?
When I think of a 'Metal Army,' I know for a fact that it is lead by some of the metal giants. Those being, Ozzy Osbourne, Kerry King, Rob Halford, Dimebag Darrell, Zakk Wylde...and of course the leader of the pack...Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead. Surfing through the fine world of the internet...I stumbled upon this fine pic.
I have always been a fan of this band, especially the stage show and how 'kinda' close I have actually been to this band. I dig the sound, the band members, and the attitude that they bring to the metal world.When it comes to mainstream metal, they are top notch. Love them or not, these guys have what it takes.
Jackie is doing a damn good job wrangling the local bands, but as a METAL AFICIONADO, I want you to talk to me! If you are a local metal band looking for some exposure and love from a radio station, this is your time to shine here at WGRD.
