Carcass ticket give away

Carcass at the Fillmore Silver Spring

Carcass is a band that started as vegetarian grindcore and evolved over the years into one of the pioneers of melodic death metal. They broke up in 1995 only to return recently with last year’s release of Surgical Steel and now, on Sunday, April 13th they’ll be playing songs spanning the entire history of the band at the Fillmore Silver Spring as they headline the 2014 line up of the Decibel Magazine Tour. We here at DCHM are pretty damn excited about this tour and so we’re going to give away a free pair of tickets to this show to one of you lucky readers. To enter: leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite Carcass album is. If you need help you can find their discography listed here. If you’re not a huge Carcass fan but more into one of the other bands on the tour, then tell me what you favorite album by one of them is instead. At 5pm EST this Friday, April 4th, a winner will be chosen at random (using 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 right now for $26.50 from Live Nation here.

Not only are death metal legends Carcass playing this show but a ton of other great bands as well. The Black Dahlia Murder is from Michigan and the melodic death metal band’s 2013 release Everdark might be their best album yet. Canadian techdeath masters Gorguts have also reunited and they’ll be destroying eardrums at this show as well. Gorguts may be the most brutal band to ever grace the stage at the Fillmore Silver Spring! Baltimore’s death/thrash upstarts Noisem are really starting to take off and they’ll be on the entire tour, not just our date, and for good reason: their high energy live show slays audiences! And for this date of the tour only straight edge hardcore band Coke Bust will be opening the show. Now that’s what I call a killer line up! Be sure to check out these killer tunes by all the bands playing the show and tell me what your favorite Carcass album is in the comments!

Carcass – Captive Bolt Pistol

The Black Dahlia Murder – Goat Of Departure

Gorguts – Forgotten Arrows

Noisem – Split From The Inside Out

  1. Heartwork is my favorite Carcass album, but I’m more excited to hear stuff from Gorguts’ Colored Sands.

  2. Nocturnal by Black Dahlia Murder

  3. Reek of Putrefaction

  4. Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious. its also in my opinion the greatest death metal album of all time. everything that makes a perfect DM album is in there.

  5. Swansong. Always and forever. Nobody ever agrees with me but that’s fine.

  6. Surgical Steel! Hands down

  7. Definitely Heartwork by Carcass.

  8. Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious…but I prefer Gorguts as far as the tour is concerned.

  9. Reek of putrefaction

  10. Necrotism ALL THA WAY \m/

  11. Heartwork!

  12. Symphonies of Sickness

  13. Symphonies of Sickness

  14. Symphonies of Sickness

  15. I’ll say Heartwork but I’m more in this for the Gorguts.

  16. Heartwork, since I’m cliche like that.

  17. He artwork is a masterpiece

  18. heartwork, because its the first carcass album I heard and melted my fucking face.

  19. Necroticism, but Heartwork and Surgical Steel are awesome in their own ways.

  20. Swansong actually

  21. Heartwork cause it’s the most accessible (kidding, you mad?). Necroticism all the way.


  23. Heartwork. Hands down.

  24. Heartwork is pretty sweet.

  25. Heartwork for sure

  26. Necroticism would have to be my favorite Carcass album. Classic!

  27. Surgical Steel. Not only is it a great record, but it proved that the reformed Carcass was here to stay.

  28. Love them all, but have to go with Heartwork.

  29. Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious!

  30. Really into the new album by Noisem

  31. Carcass: All but favor Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious because it has Incarnated Solvent Abuse among other greats.

    Black Dahlia Murder: Nocturnal though you can’t go wrong with any of them.

  32. Surgical Steel by Carcass.

  33. Surgical Steel and Unhallowed.

  34. It is a difficult decision but I have to go with Swan Song. I know it’s
    The black sheep of Carcass records but it’s so hooky. Off the new record I love “The Granulating Dark Satanic MILLS!!”

  35. Reek Putrefaction – love burnt to a crisp

  36. Necroticism is my favorite carcass album and definitely my fav death metal one the technicality and especially the guitar work is beyond killer, symphonies of sickness is also a grind masterpiece!

  37. Necroticism, but Surgical Steel is a close second! I am more looking forward to seeing Gorguts play Colored Sands, though. I got to see Carcass at MDF last year.

  38. Heartwork. I first saw carcass during their first comeback concert when Micheal Ammot was with them!

  39. Wake up and smell the carcass. Album cover is excellent!!

  40. Surgical Steel. I’m absolutely in love with that album.

  47. Heartwork

  48. Reek of Putrefaction, Symphonies of Sickness, Heartwork

  49. Necroticism – Descanting the Insalubrious. one of the albums that got me in to death metal. I am forever indebted to it.

  50. Heartwork because it rips, and This Mortal Coil is one of the best songs ever written.

  51. Heartwork, by Carcass – but really i’d like to see local goons Coke Bust shred it up on the big stage before getting my eardrums good and shot with a healthy dose of Noisem and Carcass. I want ringing in my ears come monday morning!
