On October 6, 2013, Merlin Miller, the young Amish star of “Amish Mafia” was at a heavy metal concert in Hummels Wharf Fire Company in Snyder County. It seems that Merlin likes the head banging music of Slaughter and Gun Metal Gray.
One of Merlin’s favorite groups is Gun Metal Gray. When they opened for Slaughter, Merlin was the one who went up on stage to introduce the band to the audience. Merlin told PennLive that he is also friends with the band members. After Merlin announced the group, he went to the VIP section to enjoy the show.
PennLive interviewed Merlin. "I've just been really fascinated by Gun Metal Gray because they're so good at reproducing the songs that I grew up listening to while I was still in Rumspringa and at the hut parties."
Merlins three favorite heavy metal bands are Def Leppard, Poison and AC/DC.
Alan Beiler from "Amish Mafia" is also a friend and fan of the Gun Metal Gray band members. No doubt Merlin and Alan would have attended the concert together, but Alan is currently serving a three to 23 month jail sentence.
