In case you haven’t been paying attention, March is Metal Month. What’s that mean? Well, our buddies at the EMI and the associated labels they distribute (like Earache, Nuclear Blast, Candlelight, Century Media and Season of Mist), have teamed up to make sure that you know that metal is alive and well. They’re already giving you a chance to win Megadeth’s entire Capitol catalog, but they’re not done yet.
The label group also released an awesome sampler with tons of exclusive material, like live music from Five Finger Death Punch, Suicide Silence and Suffocation, an Exodus demo from their forthcoming record, and a song from the crushingly heavy Tryptikon album. And we’re giving you a chance to win this one-of a-kind sampler, along with a March is Metal Month T-shirt. Now you’ll be able to show your allegiance for metal’s favorite month all year round!
To enter, just leave a comment in the space below stating the most metal thing you’ve done this month. Multiple entries will be disqualified, and the contest ends on (duh) March 31st.
