Dark Tranquillity, one of the bands that formed the “Gothenburg sound” of melodic death metal, is coming to the Baltimore SoundStage on Sunday, February 2nd. We here at DCHM are giving away a free pair of tickets to the show to one of you lucky readers of the site and entering to win is easy! To enter: just leave a comment on this post telling me who your favorite melodic death metal band is. Maybe it’s In Flames, Carcass, At The Gates, Soilwork or another band (I can’t list them all!). At 5pm EST this Friday, January 24th, a winner will be chosen at random (using Random.org) from all valid entries to receive two tickets to the show! Be sure to use a valid email you check regularly so I can contact you if you win. Don’t worry, I won’t add you to any spam lists or sell your info or anything sleazy like that. If I haven’t heard back from the winner in 24 hours another winner will be chosen at random. If you can’t wait to see if you win or the contest is already over when you read this then you can get tickets from Ticket Fly right now for $17.60 here.
Dark Tranquillity released their album Construct back in May but I’m sure they’ll be playing classic songs from their older albums like Damage Done and Character too. The Swedes aren’t the only band from Scandinavia on this tour though as Finland’s Omnium Gatherum will be bringing their own brand of melo death to the Baltimore SoundStage as well. There will also be support from LA thrashers Exmortus that you won’t want to miss. Local support comes from Pennsylvania’s March To Victory. Check out these videos by the touring bands and let me know who your favorite melodic death metal band is!
