Meshuggah ticket give away

Meshuggah at the Fillmore Silver Spring

Sweden’s technical metal masters Meshuggah are returning to the Fillmore Silver Spring for a second time this Saturday, February 16th, 2013. has a pair of tickets to this show to give to one of you lucky readers. To enter just leave a comment on this post telling me why you want to come to this show. Maybe you saw them last year when they played the Fillmore and you want to see another killer Meshuggah show, or maybe you missed them last time or maybe you’re still waiting for your tax return from Uncle Sam and can use a night of free metal. On Friday, February 15th at 5pm EST I’ll pick one lucky winner from all valid entries at random (using to win the pair of tickets. Please don’t enter if you cannot attend! The contest ends the day before the show so there isn’t time for me to contact additional winners if you win but can’t go. Be sure to enter with a valid email address you check regularly so I can contact you if you do win. Don’t worry, I won’t add you to any email lists or anything like that, I hate spam too. If you enter more than once then all of your entries will be disqualified. If the contest is over when you read this or you simply can’t wait to find out if you win the contest you can buy tickets from Live Nation for $26 here.

Meshuggah is on the second leg of their Ophidian Trek tour supporting their newest album, Koloss. As expected the album is a beast and they’ll be playing songs from it as well as older classics throughout their set. They have also just released Pitch Black, a free two track EP from Scion A/V that you can stream and/or download here. They’ll even have copies of Pitch Black on vinyl available at the merch booth at this show at the Fillmore! Also playing this show will be Animals As Leaders, an instrumental progressive metal band featuring former DC native Tosin Abasi on guitar. Let me tell you the guy can play! He is quite possibly the best guitarist in metal right now. The opening act will be the LA based trippy progressive metal band Intronaut. Don’t expect any slack instrumentation from them either. In all this should be another great metal show at the Fillmore. Check out the videos below by each band playing and tell me the reason you want to go to this awesome show in the comments!


  1. You want to give me those tickets because I’m married with kids and I never have the money to go to concerts anymore. And I’m awesome. Almost as awesome as you. No, I’m not too proud to kiss your ass. Snoogins.

    • totally beats my reason

    • I have a card that says I’m awesome….I win.

  2. You wanna give me the tickets cause im in the chicken suit. :D

    • yeah chickensuit guy!

    • METAL CHICKEN!!! \m/ >_< \m/

    • and i was hanging out with the chicken suit guy for a minute last year! PLUS i am a hot chick with a great rack that LOVES metal and you cant ever have too many of those at a show!!

  3. I want to go to see how many strings are on stage at the same time. And then run amuck. Also to see friends Ive not seen in some time

  4. I’m trying to get my roommate into metal by dragging him along to shows. We saw Gojira (and the chicken guy!), Devin Townsend, and some other opener the other night. He listens to whatever NPR and pitchfork plugs (which got him on Pallbearer) but I want him to see shows like this ( I think he might like Animals A.L.) before they’re filled with dirty stinking hipsters.

  5. Would be interested in seeing this show to see what the buzz about these lads is. I recall listening to Future Breed Machine back a while ago… but never really got into them

  6. I think it would be a killer show and wouldn’t want to miss it.

  7. I’ve been listening to Meshuggah since 1997 when I ordered my first CD from the Nuclear Blast catalogue I took everywhere with me like some kind of metal bible … when I showed them to an older friend and he stated the vocals were a bit weak … I immediately took to their defense even though he was older, stronger, and meaner than I was … I told him he was completely wrong and to F’OFF so he did and about 6 months later I over heard him talking to some other friends about Meshuggah like he knew it all … I just laughed and called him stupid bandwagoner … since then I have been a huge fan!

  8. I still need to lose weight from the holidays and shows like this are like running a marathon.

  9. I wanna go because Intronaut plays some tasty jams. Mmmmmmmmm

  10. I want to see every band in their face melting glory!

  11. I want to go because I missed seeing Meshuggah last year due having to deal with last-minute work related BS instead… and because I was awesome enough to give my ticket away to a friend who was visiting from Vancouver. He went and had an awesome time in my name!

  12. I Wish to watch the world be blown away by Tosin Abasi once again at the Fillmore. And experience the beauty of progressive metal, and tell the world of my experience!!!

  13. I missed Animals As Leaders last time they toured! D:

  14. I saw them last year at the Fillmore and I’ve been dying to see them again ever since. Plus, I have never won anything in a drawing/sweepstakes before and I just want to know how it feels!

    • Congrats, you’re the winner of the tickets to see Meshuggah!

  15. I am a animal? And a leader? And I need alot of sweeping, and awesome time signatures to live. And I like cats? That and I will also give you some swedish fish?

  16. in addition to being a hot chick with a great rack that loves metal, i have a boyfriend that couldnt go last year. so, i went with his friend and his friends girlfriend on HIS ticket! so, i would love to be able to return the favor!

  17. I missed them last time and I was very sad to the point I made my mother listen to them for a whole week! So this time I really wanna go, also I wanna see if I have the guts to mosh while they play Bleed!! Dont have any kids to come home to so it’s ok if I get beat up! It’ll be worth it! ;)

  18. I wanna go to see Intronaut crank out some new tunes. Can’t wait to hear the new album.

  19. I have 6 classes this semester and the only day of the week I can afford to take time off from studying is Saturday. I missed Meshuggah last year due to a prior engagement (still have yet to see them) and loved Animals as Leaders when they opened for Between the Buried and Me. I’d already have a ticket if I could afford anything but my bills!

  20. Why should I go?? Well, I just was given their cd a few months ago from a friend… They ROCK! I would love to have the chance to see them in person… He swears they are the BEST concert he has been to in years! I have made my three year old rock out to them in the car for the past few weeks, now I am pretty sure that they are his favorite as well!
    I would really love to go! Please!
    Thank you!!

  21. Because, I am an alien and will depart from this planet soon, so before I leave I would like to experience the finer qualities of human existence so that I may have a logical reason to protect your people from the destruction of this solar system…

  22. I go to metal shows for the ladies.

  23. Cause my ass is unemployed and broke as hell!!!!

  24. I want to go because I saw them last year at the fillmore and I didn’t manage to get a concert poster before they sold out.

  25. Because I like metal

  26. Friends have been telling me for years to go see Meshuggah. And AAL are awesome.

  27. I’ve been doing graduate school in Richmond for the past year, and I hardly ever get a chance to hit up shows anymore unless I’m playing them! It would be awesome to be able to relax and check out a show purely for pleasure. Plus, I usually can’t afford tickets because I’m broke as a joke from paying back the loans I’ve had to take out for school. I miss rocking out with my metal brothers and sisters up in the MD/VA/DC area, so getting these tickets would kick ass!!

  28. I saw them last year at the Fillmore, and it was definitely the ROUGHEST concert I’ve ever been too. Though I’m 5’10” – 5’11”, I am relatively skinny, which means that I was pretty much got owned in the mosh pit. Even though I had a few bad bruises, it was definitely worth it!

  29. I need those tix for my first date w/ a particular lady who’s never gone to a metal show before.

  30. I need those tickets because I just moved from the West Coast and I am so ready to f*ck sh!t up in that moshpit! “…..he’ll be fine, nobody needs all of their teeth anyway!”
