It’s been more than “20” months since PiercingMetal has offered readers a giveaway and this notice marks our first-ever event that’s being delivered virtually so it’s rather exciting that this is the path back to what we hope is a regular occurrence once again.
The Details: In 2021 the legendary Anthrax will celebrate their 40th Anniversary and in honor of this occasion the band will be delivering a special livestream concert that is bound to be loaded with their greatest songs and most probably a whole lot of surprises. The virtual experience comes care of Danny Wimmer Presents and thanks to their marketing team some of the PiercingMetal readership will be getting the chance to enjoy this livestream for free. Let’s go over some of the details on how you participate in this giveaway.

The Among the Living graphic novel pulls together a who’s who of names from around comics and music for a track by track storyline inspired by one of heavy metal’s most iconic albums.

As a fan of the Judge Dredd series since the 80’s, it was an honor to create cover art based off of Dredd and Judge Death. The amount of talent that is going into this project is astounding, I scratch my head just thinking about it!” Continue reading Z2 Comics & Anthrax Reveal “Among The Living” Graphic Novel→
While we are still in the throes of this dreaded Coronavirus Pandemic, there are some events being scheduled which I guess is a good thing since it reminds us of what “normal” is like once again. Earlier I received a piece of press copy about a cool art show featuring the work of Charlie Benante (Anthrax) and Carla Harvey (Butcher Babies). It was only a poster but it gets to the point. Take a look.
