BattleBots®, the hit competition show that first took the nation by storm in 2000, has returned for a 3rd season on Discovery Networks (Discovery & Science Channel)! This season Nuclear Blast is a proud sponsor of the metal hammer-wielding, flame-throwing BattleBots all-star, Blacksmith, by Team Half Fast Astronaut hailing from Edison, NJ.

Blacksmith is a 250lb combat robot built and driven by Al Kindle, a devoted heavy metal fan who has been competing in combat robotics since 1995. Blacksmith made a lasting impression on BattleBots season 2 when it competed in the most viewed combat robotics match of all time, Blacksmith VS Minotaur! This match was so popular that Blacksmith was one of four robots that became a toy for fans to build and battle at home.

Nuclear Blast is very excited to be part of the metal-munching, gear-grinding mayhem and support Blacksmith metal brothers and sisters in battle!

Blacksmith captain Al Kindle comments:
“When the most metal record label partners with the most metal Battlebot, the result can only be glorious!“
