Arizona resident Eric Braverman in November 2012 created the first and only Internet television network in the world, which is a 24/7 shrine to heavy metal music and its associated videos.
Heavy Metal Television, in conjunction with Zia Record Exchange and Troop Fuel Energy Drink, will hold open auditions for veejays to join the show’s roster of online/on-air jocks beginning at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10 at Zia’s flagship store at 19th Avenue and Camelback Road.
The panel of four judges deciding the fate of these veejay auditioners will be: Sacred Reich drummer Greg Hall; St. Madness vocalist Prophet; Metal Mondays blogger and contributor for Phoenix New Times Lauren Wise; and Heavy Metal Television founder Eric Braverman.
No pre-registration necessary. Come to Zia between 5 and 6 p.m. to sign up. Each audition will be videotaped for possible use on Heavy Metal Television and applicants must sign a release form. The winner will receive a deluxe prize package courtesy of Metal Blade Records. The two-runner-ups also will receive a prize. There also will be free Troop Fuel Energy Drink while supplies last, and giveaways to first 50 participants.
The show is taped daily at Asylum Records in Mesa. To learn more, visit www.HeavyMetalTelevision.com.
