UrbanHype101: Why did you want to do this and what made you decide on that date?

Iron Mathew: “There are many recognized international days of this and that, but none for heavy metal music, and as an avid fan of this genre I decided to create one. As for the date, well it had to be something memorable and as 6/6 is International SLAYER Day, I doubled the numbers and chose 12/12, which then makes the inaugural day 12/12/12.”
