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 in todays terms, way outdated.........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

A decade ago, the idea of a viable metal-oriented publishing imprint would’ve seemed absurd. But in the wake of his still-definitive 2004 genre overview, Sound of the Beast: The Complete Headbanging History of Heavy Metal, Ian Christe built a literary mini-empire that caters exclusively to the discerning mosh-pit denizen. Whether your taste is ghoulishly raw Swedish death metal, eggheaded prog metal or the racial politics of the scene, the Greenpoint-based Bazillion Points has you covered.
What defines NYC metal?
"Hands down, Dee Snider of Twisted Sister is the papa emeritus of NYC metal. He's seen and done it all, from the wild and heavy times as a 1970s club act when the drinking age was 18, to achieving platinum-selling superstardom as the ugliest glam act of all time, to defending heavy metal before a Congressional committee, to spearheading the creation of MTV Headbanger's Ball, to appearing on Broadway. Can somebody get Dee a key to the City of New York already?"
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.
