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 in todays terms, way outdated.........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

You may be wondering why in God’s name we’ve included the frontman of Gojira—a popular band from southwestern France—in an NYC-metal roundup. It’s simple: Joe Duplantier is now a Brooklynite, having settled there in 2011. While New York has birthed countless legends, one of the reasons this town remains a musical hot spot is that it still attracts the best and brightest from around the globe. We’ll be curious to see how Gotham life affects this enlightened headbanger, whose chopsy riffsmanship and eco-conscious spirituality have earned him a rabid following.
What defines NYC metal?
"Some very good friends of mine from New York, they have a band, Car Bomb. They're from Long Island, but they practice in Brooklyn and some of them live in the city. That's a very good example of a New York band. Very big brain. [Laughs] Very complicated music, but very interesting and a lot of innovation."
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.
