Tonight is possibly the most metal night of the year, at least in countries where Halloween is celebrated. In addition to giving extroverted chicks an excuse to dress slutty and dudes yet another opportunity to act like idiots, it’s the night when goblins, orcs, reanimated corpses, blood-suckers, demon spawn, and headless horsemen all come out to get fucked up and headbang.
Almost every metal blog will be doing some kind of Halloween-themed bullshit today, and we don’t want to stick out like a sore penis thumb by doing nothing to celebrate the event. But I’m too fucking lazy to create something myself, so I’d like you to do it for me. So, here’s the deal: In the Comment section, please give me your suggestion for a metal song that would be a good one to play on Halloween, and before nightfall I’ll pick three of them to play here at NCS in a follow-up post to this one. If you like, feel free to give more than one suggestion. And if you’re the shy type, feel free to e-mail me your suggestion instead of leaving it in the Comments (firstname.lastname@example.org).
And speaking of me-being-lazy-and-wanting-you-to-do-all-my-NCS-work-for-me, I’m about to turn into a pumpkin myself. Because of a work crunch that I’m now about to start, followed by a greatly deserved vacation, my blogging time is about to be severely compressed. I wrote about this a while back and made a general call for guest posts that I could run here at NCS while I’m in pumpkin land. I’ve already received a slew of great shit, and I know more submissions are on the way. BUT, it’s not too late, even if you haven’t started writing anything. Details after the jump.
You can write about anything your little black heart desires, as long as it’s got something to do with metal, and there’s no minimum or maximum length. I can’t promise I’ll run every last post I get — I have to exercise some very minimal editorial discretion. But my standards are pretty fucking low, so the odds are that if it’s in English, I’m going to run it.
Some of you apparently thought, from my last post about this, that submissions had to be in my hands by November 1. Not true. My pumpkin-head tonic state will last until November 18, and as long as your submissions come in during that stretch of time, Ill be able to use them. And if I happen to have some left over that I haven’t used before Nov 18, I’ll post them after that.
So, GO HERE for more details about how to submit your shit, and thank you in advance for helping!
Now, leave a comment about your suggestion for a metal song for All Hallow’s Eve!
