Heavy Metal Calendar Coming Soon

Beginning in November, Black Planet will be offering for sale its 2005 Heavy Metal Calendar. This full-color month-to-month wall calendar features the stunning concert photography of Matt Johnsen (Metal Maniacs) and a whirlwind of heavy metal trivia. Metal fans will find a reason to celebrate and commemorate nearly each day of the year, whether it be the anniversary of BATHORY's first rehearsal, "Ride the Lightning" turning 20, or Bruce Dickinson's (IRON MAIDEN) birthday. The calendar represents a wide range of metal culture — everything from SABBATH giving Ozzy the axe to the singer of KRIEG vomiting on a French audience!

The Calendar will be sold online and through a host of underground distributors. More information will be announced soon.

Any band wishing to submit material for consideration (first gig, bandmembers' birthdays, etc.) should do so by October 18, 2004 to [email protected]

Chicago-based Black Planet specializes in unique and collectable heavy metal merchandise. The company was founded by "Professor" Chris Black, a former contributor to Metal Maniacs and Terrorizer.
