That's the message from entrants in Great New Metal's recently concluded video contest where we asked "Why do you love wearing metal shirts?"
One tangible way fans are showing that support is by earning a permanent spot on the Great New Metal Wall of Honor through contributions to the site's Kickstarter campaign.
"The reason I love wearing metal shirts is just because I love supporting my favorite bands and the people who are behind the music," Senam Palmer of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina said in his entry for the contest. "I love supporting what I think is good metal and I will constantly and continuously do that until the day I die."
"It shows you support the musicians who are behind it and maybe even the artists who did the design," Dan Hall of Mesa Arizona said in his contest winning video submission. "I really appreciate all of the hard work that goes into the music and the artwork on the shirt. I really don't feel the artists get enough recognition for all of the work that they do."
Hall won the most support from the hundreds of people who watched the video and voted in our contest.
Great New Metal helps to fulfill the dreams of dozens of metal bands each year by providing them with professional content that builds a buzz around them while partnering with those bands for exclusive licensed signature design shirts that will help them make some cash to further their careers.
Paul Waggoner of Between the Buried and Me, Paul Masvidal of Cynic, and Brian Fair of Shadows Fall are among the well-known metal stars showing support for Great New Metal.
All donors to the campaign will have their name featured permanently on the site's Wall of Honor. All donors at the $25 level or higher will receive at least one of our signature t-shirts for a band that they support.
