It’s Halloween today, but since it’s a Friday it’s really just the start of a Halloween weekend! So for those of you who check in regularly on DCHM I’m running a super short contest giving away a pair of tickets to see Mastodon at Rams Head Live in Baltimore this Tuesday, November 4th. All you’ve got to do to enter is leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite Halloween tunes are for this weekend. They can be Halloween themed, just plain creepy, or maybe just a great new release you’ve been playing a lot lately. At 5pm EST this Monday, November 3rd, 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. Please don’t enter if you know you can’t attend, the contest ends just a few days before the show so I don’t have a lot of time to keep picking winners and waiting to hear back. 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 right now for $30 from Ticket Fly here.
Atlanta, Georgia based Mastodon released their newest full length, Once More ‘Round The Sun this summer but this will be the first time they come through our area since it was released. If hearing new Mastodon tunes live isn’t enough for you, there’s some killer support on this tour too! The French metal band with a Japanese name that sings in English, Gojira, will be playing as well. A band known for playing crushing heavy riffs with a progressive edge, Gojira always destroys live. And the opener is Norwegian band Kvelertak (which translates to choke hold in English) who mix rock and roll, punk rock and a dash of black metal with incredibly catchy riffs for an extremely high energy show. You don’t want to miss this show, so tell me what you’re going to be listening to this weekend in the comments and check out these videos of the bands playing the show to get you psyched for this show!
Mastodon – High Road
Gojira – L’Enfant Sauvage
Kvelertak – Blodtørst
