The Details: Morbid Angel is one of the defining forces of Death Metal music and while initially delivering more of a Thrash Metal sound, by the time their debut album “Altars Of Madness” was delivered in 1989, it was all about crushing their fans with a more sinister frame of mind. Their third album was called “Covenant” and it celebrated its 20th year this past June and in honor of this milestone the guys are doing a tour and playing this release in its entirety. They’ll be enhancing the appeal by offering up some other morbid classics for sure and our regional show will find support from four talented local groups. Thanks to the fine folks at Livenation, PiercingMetal is also raising a glass in the bands honor by hosting this contest that will put some of our lucky fans into the room. Read more below.
When and Where: Tuesday, November 12th at Irving Plaza (17 Irving Place, NYC)
To Participate: Considering that Morbid Angel will be doing the “Covenant” album in full, I figured I would ask a combination of things of our interested parties. All you need to do is tell me three things that are most important to you about Morbid Angel as a purveyor of crushing Death Metal or three things about “Covenant” that defined your Metal life. I’ll allow you to mix up the two items if you like, but do please give me three and number them for clarity. I’ll be responding to the winning comments directly so please be sure to enter your full real name and a working email address in the comment form but not in the comment itself for privacy concerns. Of course if you enter a comment with a Twitter handle then put your name in the comment so we have it. We do need this for list purposes after all. I always suggest subscribing to the comments as well. Go get ‘em and maybe we will bring glorious Death Metal a proper honor together at this show. Oh yes, and please only enter once. All comments are moderated and duplicates deleted.
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. I do still encourage all to participate because you never know just how many tickets we are offering and when that last person might have won. The main restriction for this one is if you had won any of the contests over the last three weeks or so you are not eligible for this one (that means The Misfits, Arkona, Dying Fetus, Finntroll, Rik Emmett, Cherie Currie and In This Moment). Please note that Guest and Anonymous comments while approved are NOT eligible to win the contest either since we do need to know who you are.
