The Scoop: The name of Chuck Schuldiner is one of legend in the Metal world for his innovative technique and skillful displays of brutality in his band Death. Formed way back in 1983 by the guitarist, the band paved the way for the still growing Death Metal scene and while not its first provider of mayhem, Chuck is often referred to as “The Father Of Death Metal” based on his incredible contributions. The band released seven studio albums and Chuck also had a group called Control Denied which he helmed after Death’s disbanding and sadly in 2001 we would lose this talented musician who died of pneumonia while at the same time was dealing with brain cancer. His music would never be forgotten and now in 2014, musicians who had been a part of Deaths rich history will unite and perform in honor of Chuck to bring us the brutality once again. This years event is called “The Swamp Leper Stomp” and it shall also offer up some material by Obituary, Massacre and Rivers Of Nihil. Cooler still is the means to put a couple of lucky PiercingMetal fans into the Best Buy Theater thanks to their marketing mavens. Read on for contest details.
