Hamilton’s Steel City has had its fair share of struggles. From an industrial revolution to a vacant downtown core… Hamilton needed some sort of Obama sized CHANGE with that special dosage of HOPE that we’ve all become too familiar with throughout the televised media. Hamilton’s downtown has drastically changed over the past eight years. With […]

In all reality, anything that Metallica releases, promotes or has any association with is going to be a success at this point in their career.
