PiercingMetal Thoughts: Cool news for fans of the original show which I must admit to the readership I was not a viewer of. When this was airing, I was watching more along the lines of the Headbangers Ball on MTV and their daily Top Videos and some other stuff. I also had a band of my own that was keeping me pretty occupied. Right now I can’t see myself giving a new subscription service a go because I’ve got Netflix, Disney Plus and HBO Max running on top of a too high cable bill and there is only so much scratch at the end of the day. I know a lot of people who loved the program though and are very psyched for this news. They might win me over if I learn of a lot of Metal content so let’s stay tuned. Chime in down below with your own thoughts on this and I will see you next time.
