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.

Today's found metal is the Czech Ghost Church! This is an eerie and weirdly beautiful art installation built into an abandoned old dilapidated church in the Czech Republic. Artist Jakub Hadrava created the paranormal parishioners and in doing so raised enough funds to have the roof fixed on the St George Church after four decades of abandonment after the ceiling fell in and caused locals to believe a bad omen had befallen the church. 

Check out this video tour of the church:

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
