Metal Blade Declares Trenton Titans To Be Metal's Official Hockey Team

Los Angeles-based Metal Blade Records, which recently celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2012, has partnered with the Trenton Titans to declare them metal's official hockey team.

The two brands will be launching various cross-promotions over the next few months, primarily through both company's array of social networks. Metal Blade also issued the following press release:

"The Trenton Titans play in the ECHL the premier 'AA' hockey league and are the proud affiliate to the Philadelphia Flyers in the NHL and the Adirondack Phantoms in the AHL. The Trenton Titans host a weekly Google+ and YouTube live video feed. On the show, Titans GM Rich Lisk discusses the latest games, player moves, promotions, a top 10 related to current events in Titans Nation and a question and answer segment. Previous broadcasts are available on the Trenton Titans YouTube channel.

"The Trenton Titans are about halfway through their regular season as part of the ECHL's Eastern Atlantic divison, with the remaining schedule available at this location. Fans can follow the team there, as well as via their other social outlets at Twitter or Facebook.

"Metal Blade Records CEO Brian Slagel teamed up at the beginning of 2011 with NHL.com's Shawn Roarke for a new radio show called 'Metal Misconduct.' This show features interviews with musicians and athletes, merging the worlds of sports and metal music. Past guests have included Drew Stafford (Buffallo Sabres), Josh Barnett (MMA), Kyle Turley (Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints), and more. The podcast is available on iTunes here."

The thrashers were the biggest joke of a franchise the NHL has ever seen. Well, not quite as weak as Columbus but I'm glad they're in Canada now where most NHL teams belong.
