Home Of Metal at New Art Gallery Walsall – in photos


Here are some more photos taken from our fantastic Open Day at The New Art Gallery Walsall, by Naseem. We all had a blast and met some amazing people with great stories and gathered a treasure trove of Metal related items to add to the archive. Thanks to the team at the gallery and our Home Of Metal volunteers, to all the people that turned up with stuff, the guys from Einstellung/Mistress and last but not least the Walsall Local History Centre.

    I don’t get it. Why has the project restricted itself to just five bands (and why these five) when Birmingham has produced so much more Heavy Metal than this?

    Surely you are excluding a lot of people and a lot of rock history…
