Win To See Finntroll In NYC On 11/5/2013

Logo - Finntroll

The Details: I still remember the Folk Metal thrashing that the fans got when Finntroll first came to the states as the opening act for the Sodom tour back in 2006 and without trying to sound disrespectful, they were an incredibly hard act to follow and the Germans had their hands full. The visit showed the band that returning to these parts was good hunting in the name of Metal and since that fateful night they have released four more albums and knocked our socks off with each and every visit. Its been a couple of years but now the band is returning to the new Stage 48 club and bringing along the mighty Blackguard and Metsatoll from Estonia for good measure. You know you don’t want to miss out on this one. The show itself excites me, and even more so now that the marketing team at this beautiful space have offered a couple of tickets to my ardent supporters. Read below on how to participate in this one.

We’ve gotten some great stuff from the musicians and creative entities who were kind enough to participate in the series. So without any further adieu “Welcome to Chapter 9 of our New Year’s Music Resolutions for 2013”.

1. Ronny Munroe (Metal Church): My New Year’s Resolution: To continue to grow musically and mentally, and to put out the best music of my career,wether it be with Metal Church or my own music. That’s it 🙂

2. The Last Vegas: The Last Vegas’ New Year’s Resolution for 2013 is to go organic. Not in a dietary sense mind you, but artistically going back to the raw, the real, the look into your soul to see what is in there and what you can pull out that truly sticks to your and your listeners’ bones. In today’s modern musical climate, the competition for listeners’ attention is fierce, fast and fleeting. Plug in straight, bypass the bullsh*t meter, and get the direct-connect. Any yahoo can have great hair…

3. J.R. Gurrieri (Slam One Down): To Get on the biggest tour that we can and support some great Heavy Metal Bands and to write and record a better record than the one we just put out.
