Wintersun ticket give away


The epic metal masters Wintersun are coming from Finland for their first ever headlining tour of the US and the tour is kicking off in Baltimore on Tuesday, August 6th! This show was originally scheduled to be at the Fillmore Silver Spring but has been moved to the Baltimore SoundStage. To help get the word out about this awesome show’s venue change is giving away a pair of tickets to a lucky one of you! To enter: just leave a comment on this post telling me why you want to go to this show. At 5pm EST this Friday, August 2nd, a winner will be chosen at random (using from all valid entries to win the tickets. 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 within 24 hours another winner will be chosen. 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 for $22 here.

Wintersun has announced that on this tour they’ll be playing both of their albums, the self titled and Time I, from front to back at each concert. They’ll also be debuting a new song as well, and since this is the first show of the tour, we’ll be the lucky ones hearing it all first! Also on this tour is the Italian symphonic death metal band Fleshgod Apocalypse and Virginia based tech metal band Arsis. You’ll also get to see the hot new melodic metal band Starkill from Chicago. There will also be some local support acts, including the excellent Fallen Martyr, so be sure to get there early to see these guys. And if all that awesomeness doesn’t convince you to get out to this show then check out these awesome tunes below from the bands playing as you give me your reason for wanting to attend!
