GIMME METAL T-Shirt Club – The GIMME METAL T-Shirt Club’s release for May is the “Satyr Of Flame” design by David Paul Seymour (Slayer, Mastodon, Municipal Waste, Red Fang). This commanding design represents the Roman definition of Satyr “with a goat’s horns, tail, and legs with hooves.” The David Paul Seymour interpretation orders authority over the hellish landscapes surrounding it dressed in skulls and chains with a badass, spiked cranium flail. Just a perfect beast of a demon!

This week on GIMME METAL:

Nefarious Industries Label Special – Nefarious Industries is an independent label and music collective extending its tentacles into far-flung regions of the musical spectrum. The Philadelphia home to crime, slime, grime since 2010, the label plays host to an eclectic roster that includes Psychosomatic, Titan To Tachyons, Bangladeafy, Trillionaire, Oxx, Zevious, El Drugstore, A Fucking Elephant, and so much more! Celebrate the label’s 10th anniversary with a guest DJ special from head honcho, Greg Meisenberg!

Exciter Day! – GIMME METAL is excited to celebrate all things Exciter with a guest DJ special, an interview with the band on the Between The Lines GIMME METAL Vinyl Club spotlight, and a replay of first two Exciter guest DJ specials on GIMME METAL 2. Formed in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada in 1978, Exciter have staked their claim as true godfathers of speed and thrash metal. They’ve evolved through many phases over the years yet are still actively ruling with a dedicated foundation of fans. To celebrate the GIMME METAL Vinyl Club’s new exclusive re-pressing of Exciter’s 1983 debut album Heavy Metal Maniac (in heavy green splatter available!), founding bassist Allan Johnson and guitarist Daniel Dekay will take over the GIMME DJ console once again with a killer selection of songs in tow. Following the airing, stay tuned for Between The Lines where host Jim Santanella speaks at length with Johnson… then head over to the GIMME METAL 2 channel for two more previous Exciter guest specials!

Iron Maiden And The New Wave Of British Heavy Metal Replay – This isn’t one of those “play it once” kind of documentaries! In case you missed it, Iron Maiden stands at the forefront of this examination of 1976’s NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) movement, in which a new generation of musicians ushered in a sound and culture previously uninhabited by the metal scene. Other bands included are Samson, Praying Mantis, Saxon, Diamond Head, Tygers Of Pan Tang, and many others. This is an in-depth look at not only the music but also at the series of unconnected events that shaped this lasting musical form–as well as the larger media and cultural reaction. And don’t forget to join everyone in the Live Chat to talk about your favorite Maiden albums, songs, and moments!

The Ball with Riki Rachtman: Episode 2 – Following the wild success of the show’s debut, starting Saturday, Riki Rachtman will be hosting four new weekly episodes of The Ball!
