Found Metal Friday! by Tony McMillen

My new heavy metal horror novel An Augmented Fourth comes out this June.

To mark the occasion I'm going to bring you '"Found Metal" on Fridays.

Found Metal is pop culture stuff I’ve dredged up from the corners of my mind and mother internet that aren’t explicitly heavy metal in and of themselves but nevertheless they still possess that unnamable thing that makes something metal. Some things just have that connotation with them and it’s hard to say exactly why. Metal is one of those things that’s impossible to define exactly but you know it when you see it.

This week's found metal comes from a reader, Michael Cirone was awesome enough to share this nugget of brutality with us and will be thusly rewarded. I'll be sending him some fiction or art once I find out his preference.

Apparently from this picture some graffito artist took it upon themselves to vandalize this unsuspecting espresso machine box by adding the letter "s" to the word "layer" thus spelling out the name of the metal group "Slayer" whom I'm told are somewhat well known. 

Get out your metal detectors!

If you got something you think is unintentionally brutal or accidentally scary send that found metal to me via an email and if I use it I'll send you some sort of prize. Hit me up at: tonymcmllen@gmail.com

Today's found metal is old people

Old people are surprising metal as fuck. Just look at them.

Each one is a grim reminder of the ravages that time has in store for each and every one of us. Also they’re badass. They’re by definition survivors, and the best ones have that “sans fucks” attitude of, "I might die any day so I’m  just going to say whatever inappropriate thing worms its way into my noodle."

Old people are the closest thing we have in real life to an Iron Maiden album cover.

Eddddddddddddiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeee.

Eddddddddddddiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeee.

Today's found metal is a scary fucking building and is brought to us by a reader! Sorta. My friend Michael Chaisson told me I should use scary buildings - which I did -but he didn't recommend this bad boy in particular so he only gets a partial credit. Which means he'll receive 1/4 of a prize.

Or 100% of nothing.

Shit's tough in the blogosphere.

Anyways, this beautiful structure is is the Wedding Palace, Ashgabat, located in Turkmenistan.

And without the red lighting it actually doesn't look too menacing at all.

Wonderful, no?
