What does Eddie Trunk have to do with NYC Metal?........... He doesnt support True Metal..... You will never see people like him or Jose Mangin (Sirious XM) at any real shows...... only those corporate backed tours and such..... Eddie Trunk and That Metal Show wouldve been cool many years ago.... in todays terms, way outdated......... Everyone else featured in this article has my respect for sure............ Ultimate Salutes to Fred Passero, Colin Marston, Immolation and all the pure gentlemen associated with Saint Vitus Bar............... Horns Up

If the NYC metal underground is a beehive, then Colin Marston’s Woodhaven studio is the queen’s lair. Bands from all over North America travel to Menegroth, the Thousand Caves, to partake of Marston’s signature clear, meaty tones, and to commune with this unassuming virtuoso—on guitar, bass and the “12-string Hell-Harp” also known as the Warr Guitar—who spends his spare time crafting avant-garde metal masterpieces of his own with Krallice, Dysrhythmia, Behold… the Arctopus and an elusive one-man band, Indricothere.
What defines NYC metal?
I CAUGHT FOGHAT THERE, AND JOE PERRY GONE SOLO, IT WAS A GREAT CLUB, A TIGHT FIT ON SOLD OUT NIGHTS. I PLAYED THE BIGGER VENUE IN QUEENS A FEW YEARS LATER.
A big shout out to Eddie for keeping a piece of Americana alive and well. Many thanks to him and his cohorts. Plus he is a fellow die hard NY Mets fan.
