Making Slaters Metal Show made some progress this week. Biggest plan getting into Rob Zombie and meeting the man for an interview.
After vacation Slater decided to see who in the Rogue Valley he could make contact with in metal music to help promote them as well as Slater’s Metal Show. He sent a message to Mike Kincade the main metal man of Medford, OR. He has interviews with Sylent Storm a local metal band that is comming up on their one year anniversary. We are going to their show July 2. Plus we have possible interviews to set up with other bands at this show. We are going to talk to Kincade about Edge Fest 5 the annual metal gathering here in the Rogue Valley, going on in August. Plus now there is a possible show to go to the Dimebag Darrel tribute 10 year anniversary. We know band members like Negative Zen that will be opening up for the tribute. Interviews and photo ops will be available for the smaller acts but we hope that with our connections perhaps be able to interview and have photo ops with the bigger names that will be featured. I am not sure who they are yet I did not ask too many details. They will come later as we set up agendas for each event.
To get interviews with bigger name bands you have to searcgh and find they press representative and work out things throough them. And being that Rob Zombie is comming to a local venue then we can also contact the press agent for the venue and find out how to get into the concert, help with promotion to get front row seats and for photo and interview opportunites. We are Making Slaters Metal show as interesting as we can. As well as the web site.
Metallica at AT&T Com Park San Fransisco, Ca 2014 You can watch them electrify The Star Spangled Banner,
On May 17, 2014 Metallica got on the field at Giants Stadium and rocked the Star Spangled Banner. The San Francisco based band Metallica has made quite a name for themselves. I think they are the longest lasting heavy metal band. Last month the Black Album went 16X platinum. That means it is the highest selling heavy metal album of all time, but more importantly it is the highest selling album of all music. 16 million copies wow that incredible. I liked the Black Album too, I always hear songs off that album. Some say that it is their last good album.
information taken from
My son Damien and a friend head banging at a metal concert. We were at a small venue at Music Head in Medford Oregon, listening to the jam of our friends in Negative Zen a band from Portland Oregon. My son is 10 and has been listening to heavy metal since birth (my husband picked the music, Dream Theater), saw his first metal concert at 2 months old, wrote his first lyrics for a metal song at four called Bloody Toe, learned to play the drums at five, and since he got his first stereo has been blasting Metallica, Mega Death, and Slayer along with dream Theater. Please close your door or turn down the volume, so he closes the door. I am not going to hinder his creative side, and if he wants to sing and play along with the songs I wont hinder his artistic nature. Even though I still am on a journey to understanding heavy metal.
This is very important part of understanding metal music. Why the gore, why the costumes, the dark and sinister lyrics that drew together tens of thousands of people to concerts? Then I was watching an episode of Top Gear BBC and Alice Cooper was the guest in their reasonably priced car to race around their test track. The host asked why he changed his name to Alice. And it was put simply, they were wanting to create a reaction, for the parents to hate them and the kids to love them. They were speaking out about the oppression that was being felt through society at that time. The gore and sinister costumes he wore was because he was playing the villain. Like the theater and actors, someone is the good guy and someone is the bad guy, Alice Cooper chose to be the bad guy. And he song about that. He accomplished his goal of getting a reaction and in a big way. Out of Europe to America he was one of the original bands that helped bring about the heavy metal revolution. He said he was killed four times in his last show when he retired. I’m gonna have to see if I can find that on you-tube.
So I changed the title to the blog. Putting the silence to death just wasn’t conveying the message of the blog. I am trying to promote Slater’s Metal Show, which is now in the title of the blog. Making adds the other dimensions of creation and development. Follow along as Slater’s Metal Show gains fans, becomes syndicated, and begins to make a profit. Learn about heavy metal music, history, bands, genre’s, lyrics, and probably a lot more as I delve into the world of heavy metal music.
