The past three months have been crazy with so many amazing concerts and the general madness of the holidays. We now hit that looooooong stretch of time between January and warm. It’s the kind of cold, depressing shit that’s perfect for METAL m/ m/. It’s probably how black metal was invented – at least partly.
Here are six metally-good things you can get into to pass the time during winter.
#1 Listen to albums on these top albums lists
Metal Injection: www.metalinjection.net/category/lists/best-of-2013
#2 Make your own Top 10 albums list
Post it to the MoshPitNation Facebook page and we’ll share it with the entire MPNation: Facebook.com/MoshPitNationWestMI. Include links to the bands if you can.
#3 Go to the Heavyweight Battle of the Bands
The best way to beat the winter bah-humbugs is to hit The Intersection on Fridays in January for The Heavyweights, a 13-year tradition showcasing the best metal bands in West Michigan. More than 15 bands metal their hearts out over a few weeks at The Intersection for $2,000 in cash, prizes, gift certificates and other cool stuff.
And there are contests for the fans too: a tattoo contest sponsored by Forever Ink, beard contest sponsored by Beardcore and a Vintage Band T-shirt contest by MoshPitNation. Come out for some awesome music, killer drink specials and cool vendors. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite bands.
