The reformed or reunited version of Pantera in 2022 features original members Philip Anselmo and Rex Brown who laid down that primal concrete sledge something fierce back in the heyday with the exemplary talents of “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott and his brother Vinnie Paul who are sadly no longer with us. Joining the ranks in their honor are Zakk Wylde from Black Label Society and Charlie Benante from Anthrax on lead guitar and drums respectively. Now there is a lot of chatter to the relevence of this particular reunion and my view is this. It’s good to have the means to let generations of Metalheads in the now enjoy these songs in the live sense since with the proper work it can be done effectively and send the people home exhilarated. While the band was recently in the news with their joining onto the upcoming Metallica World Tour (announced HERE ICYMI), last night they performed at the Hell and Heaven Fest in Mexico and the set list rundown was cribbed from the popular Setlist.fm website.

Greetings my music minded friends and if I’ve not yet said so in another network, “Welcome To December” and what amounts to the final “Bandcamp Friday” for 2022. For the last few months I’ve taken a card out of some of the other websites deck and done this kind of post to help broadcast this cool initiative. While a news alert like this one would be better suited for the Ken Pierce Media site, since this is aimed at the music side of the fence I run them on PiercingMetal.com for the duration. Legacy readers will likely remember our discussing how Bandcamp was acquired by Epic Games but for the newbies they should click HERE to be on point with the not so latest news. Since we are approaching the “Season of Giving”, I think its super important to send readers to the Bandcamp service to help support the music they love so much. Let’s review just what this is shall we?
What Is Bandcamp Friday: Bandcamp Fridays allow artists and labels releasing music to take back 93% of the money earned through sales, with the other 7% being used for processing fees and charges. Launched on the first Friday of March in 2020, Bandcamp Fridays normally take place on one Friday a month (usually the first). Continue reading Attention: Today Is Bandcamp Friday (12/2/2022)→
If you have the Disney+ streaming service, you’ve just enjoyed the latest adventures of the Guardians of the Galaxy with the first ever Marvel Studios Christmas special in “The Guardians of The Galaxy Holiday Special”. It was a lot of fun and if you didn’t see it you can trust us on that. So the broadcast of this Special Presentation led everyone to wonder when the Official Trailer for the third installment in the adventures of the Guardians would be and my friends you need wonder no more. The moment has arrived with the first Official Trailer for this 2023 release and it comes on the heels of the trailer for the fifth Indiana Jones film “Indiana Jones and The Dial of Destiny”. If you click that hyperlinked text you can see that or just scroll down below to enjoy what we have available about “GOTGV3”. Enjoy.
I’m of the vintage where I was able to see the first film that featured Indiana Jones film in the theaters early in its run and I loved it quite a bit and recall being on the edge of my seat for much of it. Most of the film buff readers know that this didn’t even have his name in the title and ran under “Raiders Of The Lost Ark”. It’s hard to believe that this was some thirty one years ago but now Indy has returned for the fifth chapter in his story with “Indiana Jones and The Dial Of Destiny”. The first trailer was just released from Lucasfilm and I’ve got that along with the casting, basic premise and some promotional art. Check it out.
The Plot: In 1969, American archaeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones lives against the backdrop of the Space Race. Jones had started to feel doubts when the U.S. Government recruited former World War II enemies in their desperation to beat the Soviet Union out in the competition to make it to space. His goddaughter, Helena, accompanies him on his journey. Meanwhile, Voller, a NASA member and ex-Nazi involved with the moon-landing program, wishes to make the world into a better place as he sees fit.

“The are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie. She was truly one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure.

Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. She will be so very missed”. Fleetwood Mac
