Metal Mark

It’s Metal Mark’s birthday today so you should read this month’s blog from him

March 16th, 2010

It really is Metal Mark‘s birthday today. He’s at work today and he’s getting drunk tonight. He’s at work tomorrow as well. It’s what he does. This is why you really ought to read about his Heavy Metal life.

Hola Metal Friends! So February is the shortest month of the year, yet in Atlanta this year, it was packed full of shows each week. I literally only had two days where I wasn’t at a show, editing, at a party, drinking until the room was spinning, or working. As tired as I am, it was a great month for metal fans here and this is my report….. from what I can remember.

Metal Mark gets ticketed for drinking too much; hangs out with Baroness and Behemoth

February 17th, 2010

What’s going on my metal friends! After two months I have returned to let you in on what I’ve been up to. Some of you may have been worried that I died of alcohol poisoning, maybe I should have three or four times, but I’m here! Luckily I could spend more on alcohol recently, since there were only a few shows coming through the Atlanta area. It worked out perfectly!

Metal Mark has a quiet month. WTF?

October 20th, 2009

Our man on the ground in Atlanta, USA checks in and chats about September. Metal Mark had a quieter month than normal but still saw DOWN, Gojira and had a chat to Max Cavalera. Nice.

What’s up my metal people! September was a rather slow month when it comes to shows in Atlanta, but there were two great ones. The first day of the month, DOWN rolled into town with a killer lineup of bands, which included Evil Army, Weedeater, and The Melvins. All the opening acts were awesome, but everyone was there to see one band and one band only – DOWN.

August 9th, 2009

It’s been another month and so it’s time for another hazy-eyed narrative from Atlanta’s finest metaller-bothering boozehound, Metal Mark from SkullsNBones.com. This time, he’s been to Mayhem Festival. Ooh err…

What’s going on metal people?! The past few weeks have been extremely busy here in Atlanta. It’s been a metal overload! So many shows, so many beers, so little time, but it’s been awesome.

In the past few weeks I have seen live shows from Iwrestledabearonce, Atheist, The Faceless, Psyopus, The Agonist, and of course the all day Mayhem Festival. Most of this blog will be about the Mayhem Festival since I had a lot of interviews and the show was insane. So here we go!

What’s going on metalheads? The past month has been full of shows in Atlanta. Now my wallet is empty, and there is more PBR in my body than water.  This month started out with the awesome Summer Slaughter tour at The Masquerade in Atlanta.  The tour lineup was insane, with bands like Necrophagist, Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Origin, and Beneath The Massacre destroying the stage.
