Sure, the metalheads in attendance may have gotten a little grayer and wider around the midsection, but party must go on. If you're unfamiliar with the cult classic Heavy Metal Parking Lot, a short documentary chronicling the scene outside a Priest show in Maryland in '86, let me explain the film's salient characteristics: Budweiser, Priest singalongs and general badassery by some of the finest metalheads in the greater East Coast region.
