16:19 - Nimlot Spirit of Metal is like a rolling black metal logo?
15:58 - Karlabos I joined MA and Spirit Of Metal. MA has a good recommendation subforum, I'll give them that. But on the other hand there's not much more than that... Spirit of Metal is like this [link] so...
14:55 - Apothecary I can guarantee you that I would not know at least 75% of the metal bands that I do today had it not been for this site
14:54 - Apothecary We care about giving those who are just starting out and getting going their time of day and the exposure they deserve. It isn't JUST MS that does this, but we do seem to be where that attitude is strongest
14:54 - Apothecary What makes Metal Storm so great, and what has kept me around here, is that we focus on the metal scene AS IT IS EMERGING. We don't just care about pimping bands that are already well established and that people know about already
14:10 - Kuroboshi Me one of them. Proud (mostly) lurker since 10 years back. Mostly too busy with regular life to have time to review etc.
And why not? In an effort to somehow put their names on more product, rock legends Kiss have purchased a Los Angeles-based Arena League Football Team. For those who do not follow American sports, Arena League Football is basically a low-budget version of the National Football League (NFL). The team is called LA KISS of all things and will even make use of the band's logo.
The team is set to start play next March in Anaheim's Honda Center.
Gene Simmons said in a statement: "As a fast-paced, high-action band, this partnership with the AFL was an obvious fit for us. With Arena Football, you are much closer to the action - sitting in the front row is like putting a folding chair on the hash mark of an NFL game - and it's one of the only sports where you can experience this level of intensity. Attending an LA KISS game in 2014 will be similar to a live KISS show, with thrilling, heart-pounding action."
"The whole idea of an alternative to what has perhaps become a corporate sport is very intriguing, and resonates with us," Paul Stanley added. "We've always tried to be a band that relates to everybody, and the AFL is built on that whole premise."
"This is a great business venture for Kiss. It's fantastic to have a team named after the band and it is a privilege to be able to support LA and bring the experience home," says Don McGhee, Kiss manager, who facilitated the new partnership.
