MetalInsiderCMJ2013If you couldn’t tell already, we’re really psyched about our CMJ Metal Insider showcase, coming up in just over two weeks. Not only have we curated a killer lineup, with Nachtmystium, Byzantine, Black Anvil, Ramming Speed and Vattnet Viskar playing, we’re also celebrating by giving away an amazing prize pack. Want to be the ultimate Metal Insider? You’ll get a CMJ badge (a $549 value), plus tons of music from the bands playing on the showcase, signed swag, and music from Sumerian Records and Collective Sounds (aka signed Jason Newsted vinyl!).

We’ve extended the contest until midnight tonight, so you should definitely enter now. But we’ve still got some great stuff to give away. We’ll also be giving away a secondary prize pack featuring a huge bundle of CDs, vinyl and signed stuff plus whatever else didn’t fit in the badge winner’s box. Since a badge won’t be included in this, you’ll be able to enter until next Friday, 10/11, and you don’t even have to be in the NYC area to win – just spread the word about our showcase. To enter, just retweet (on Twitter) or share (on Facebook), details about the contest using our name (@metalinsider) in the post, and you’ll be entered to win! US residents only, please.

And once again, if you haven’t bought tickets to our showcase, they’re still available, and you can pick them up here.
