National Metal Day

Postby Doobie » Mon Jul 18, 2011 7:07 am

as reported by

From "In case you haven't heard, “National Metal Day” is planned for November 11 (11-11-11), and headbangers of all kinds are ready to go to 11 on this new holiday. VH1 Classic is right there with them; the cable channel is planning a bunch of special programming to celebrate.
VH1 Classic will turn the holiday into an 11-day event (from November 1-11), with concerts and specials that feature Black Sabbath, Metallica, Judas Priest and many other metal titans. November 11 also will see the debut of Behind the Music Remastered: Megadeth.
But the highlight might be an all-new, 11-part series titled Metal Evolution, which will chronicle the history of all things metal. Episode one will debut on November 11 and focus on proto-metal artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin. Subsequent installments will focus on the new wave of British heavy metal, glam metal, thrash metal and more.
“Nobody is more metal than VH1 Classic,” said Ben Zurier, executive vice president of programming strategy at VH1 and VH1 Classic, in a statement. “Celebrating National Metal Day on 11-11-11 gives us a platform to honor metal artists, and take metal music one step further than anybody has before.”
