The Details: The sign on the top of the poster for this tour might as well read “Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter Here” but since it does not give the audience fair warning about what awaits them once they get inside and into the unearthly Black Metal maw of Watain, I can only say that they should prepare for levels of Hell on Earth. That said, the band just recently released “The Wild Hunt” on Century Media Records and will be bringing their shocking and brutal performance to NYC once again and have In Solitude and Tribulation along as support. Thanks to the fine folks at Livenation, some lucky PiercingMetal fans are going to get to see this show for free.
When and Where: Tuesday October 8th at Irving Plaza (17 Irving Place, NYC)
To Participate: So far I have had readers build me the ultimate Folk Metal band, ultimate Gothenburg Metal band and most recently the ultimate Death Metal band (with our still running Deicide contest). For the Watain one I figured that sticking to this particular premise would be fun and with that I say “Build Me The Ultimate Black Metal” band. Now before you get to work know a couple of restrictions I have on this one. Generally I say that no one who is deceased can be a part of your ultimate lineup, but we have lost many great Black Metal musicians so I will allow your lineup to have one member only who is no longer among us. You’ll need a singer, two guitarists, a bassist, a drummer and even a keyboardist if you choose to go Symphonic. The musicians must be primarily known for Black Metal. Let me know why this lineup works and what their debut album might be called. Remember to put your full name and email address into the comment form but not the comment itself. We will need to reach you if you win. It also never hurts to subscribe to comments for good measure. I will be replying directly to those who have won a ticket. Go get ‘em.
Restrictions: While all PiercingMetal.com contests are open to our regional site readers, Facebook Page likers and Twitter Followers we do look at new responders first in order to give everyone a fair shot at enjoying a show on the provider and us. Of course we still encourage all to participate because you never know just how many tickets we are offering and when that last person might have won. Please note that Guest and Anonymous comments while approved are NOT eligible to win the contest. Lastly since our Deicide contest is still running, if you were marked as w winner for that show you will not win this one. Sorry.
