One week after the initial concept for One Million Beers for Metal was drunkenly conceived, here’s our first round of submissions. These are from our Flickr group and feature some European metal festivals and founder Biodagar’s weekend aftermath.

There were also three submissions from the site – Troy from Adelaide giving Simey some metal brother love while Ree throws the horns at Troy’s birthday bash in 2009; Dill The Devil, music editor at, about to consume a can of Strongbow in the name of metal at the Download 2008 music festival at Castle Donington; and @Biomech and the crew: @clone6, @bullie666, @darcyvargas – drinking up before the Mastodon gig.

I’ve carefully counted and I believe that there are 89 beers in these photographs (41 single beers, plus two cartons being transported). So we are now officially 0.0089% of the way to our goal.

Thanks everyone – horns up guys! Can’t wait to see even more next week! Drink up!
