The Details: “Murder In The Front Row” is a compelling documentary about the early days of the Bay Area Thrash Metal scene and I’ve discussed the film in my OFFICIAL TRAILER post along with news about a special NEW YORK COMIC CON PANEL already. Here is more of an official stand on the feature.
“Murder In The Front Row: The San Francisco Bay Area Thrash Metal Story. In the early 1980’s, a small group of dedicated Bay Area headbangers shunned the hard rock of MTV and Hollywood hairspray bands in favor of a more dangerous brand of metal that became known as thrash. From the tape trading network to the clubs to the record stores and fanzines, director Adam Dubin reveals how the scene nurtured the music and the music spawned a movement. Murder In The Front Row is told through powerful first person testimony and stunning animation and photography. The film is a social study of a group of young people defying the odds and building something essential for themselves. Featuring interviews with Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Exodus, Testament, Death Angel, Possessed and many more. Narrated by Brian Posehn.” (c/o IMDB)

Stuff about his body of work and how awesome it is – just convince me about your interest in Sammy. Here are some entry guidelines.

To Participate: I grew up on the classic Batman television series and remember it fondly. Even as an adult the show remains special to me and I am absolutely stoked to offer up this contest to our readers and fans of the show right after the always incredible NY Comic Con. Those folks at Fathom Events are really dishing out some awesome IMHO. Here’s what you can do for me with this one. Name your three very favorite episodes of the original show and what about them made it special. That should be easy enough and if you are just one of the curious give me three solid things about the Batman mythology that keep you interested as a fan. They have to be good of course since one or two words are not going to do it at all. Read the guidelines below and then head on over to the Batcave. The Batcomputer needs you aware of these specs below.

Are you ready to get scared my readers? Well I hope that you said yes because I just received a brand new contest and this one is for an exclusive one-night only screening of Rob Zombie’s latest film “31”. The film will open up in select cinemas in a few weeks for a limited run but some lucky PiercingMetal readers are going to get to see this way before that time. Check out the details for this brand new Fathom Events happening because its totally awesome.
The Scoop: Fathom Events and Saban Films are thrilled to bring the premiere of Rob Zombie’s 31, to select cinemas nationwide on Thursday, September 1 for a twisted one-night event.
From the visionary mind of Rob Zombie (House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects and Halloween) comes the horrific story of five carnival workers who are kidnapped the night before Halloween and held hostage in a large compound. At the mercy of their captors, they are forced to play a twisted game of life or death called 31. For the next 12 hours they must fight for their lives against an endless parade of homicidal maniacs in “the deadliest game since Saw.” (Steve Barton, Dread Central)
Written and directed by Zombie and starring Sheri Moon Zombie (The Devil’s Rejects, Halloween), Golden Globe nominee Malcolm McDowell (Mozart in the Jungle, A Clockwork Orange), Jeff Daniel Phillips (The Lords of Salem) and Meg Foster (They Live) this newest feature further cements Zombie’s creative accomplishments in the cinema world.
The Details: Back on 12/31/2015 Motley Crue performed as a band for the very last time during a tour called “The End”. Once it ended the band closed the book on a truly storied career and that was it. No more Motley Crue. The full press release about this event can be viewed HERE. The historic final show will be shown on the big screens at select locations for one-night only thanks to the folks at Fathom Events and even better to announce is that they want a whole bunch of PiercingMetal readers at the screening as well. Read more below on how to participate.
When and Where: Tuesday, June 14th 7:00pm at AMC Empire 25 Theatre (NYC)
To Participate: I probably don’t have to tell you that Motley Crue always delivered the goods when it came to an entertaining show for decades and over the course of my own live concert adventures I think I have seen them about eight times. Of course this is nothing compared to the diehards when it comes to their concert attendances. This contest continues our movie ticket giveaways on PiercingMetal and I’ll keep them similar to our concert ones. With this in mind please just give me three things about the band that you love the most. It can span your favorite albums, songs, meet and greets or past concert experiences. Make this good reading because the stuff remains on the website and can likely inspire new fans as well to check them out and encourage even more giveaways of this nature. Now since there are likely newbies in the mix that want to be a part of the fun, those people can get me three solid reasons why they must be at the show. I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer. Please be aware that this is for a “single ticket only” and no plus one requests will be honored. Sorry.
