Valentine’s Day Double Give Away

Roots vs DevilDriver

Valentine’s Day might not be the most brutal of holidays, not until now that is! We’re doing a special 48 hour contest where you can win a pair of tickets to your choice of two sick upcoming metal shows at the Baltimore Soundstage (you can even enter for to win tickets to both if you want, but you can’t win both prizes). Option one is Max & Iggor Cavalera‘s Return to Roots this Sunday, February 19th along with Immolation, Full Of Hell, Withered, Immortal Bird and Cemetery Piss. Your second option is to see DevilDriver the following night, Monday, February 20th along with Death Angel, Winds Of Plague, The Agonist and Azreal. To enter just leave a comment on this post telling me which concert you would like to win a free pair of tickets to (or answer “Both” if you want to enter for both shows). At 5pm EST on Thursday, February 16th two different winners will be chosen at random (using Random.org), and each will receive a pair of tickets to a show they requested. 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. Multiple entries from the same person, even if you’re using different email addresses, will be disqualified. 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, you need a last minute Valentine’s Day gift, or the contest is already over when you read this, then you can get tickets from Ticket Fly for Max & Iggor for $26.40 (here and for DevilDriver for $23 here.

Brotherly love brings us the Cavalera brothers performing the classic Sepultura album Roots in its entirety. Their tour with the always brutal NYDM band Immolation and the Maryland based Full Of Hell is combining for this special show with black metal band Withered‘s tour with the ferocious Immortal Bird and Baltimore’s Cemetery Piss. It’s a lot of bands on the bill and it sure beats both tours being at different Baltimore venues on the same night. DevilDriver is bringing their brand of hardcore laced heavy metal back on the road, this time with Bay Area thrash legends Death Angel. Winds Of Plague and Azreal round out the touring bill and locals Emerge A Tyrant are the opening support. Now check out the videos by some of the bands on these shows below and tell me which of these sick concerts you want to win tickets to!

Inter Arma ticket give away

Inter Arma at DC9

Inter Arma is one of the best bands to come out of that awesome Richmond metal scene. On Tuesday, July 5th they’re kicking off their new tour with a show at DC9 and we’re giving away a pair of tickets to the show to one of you lucky DCHM readers! To enter leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite metal album of the summer is (so far). It can be a brand new release or an old favorite you’ve been playing more for whatever reason. At 5pm EST this Friday, June 17th, 2016, the contest will close and I’ll pick a winner at random (using Random.org) 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 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 for $12 here.

Inter Arma is hard to place into a genre, I generally tell people they sound kind of like if Neurosis was super pissed off. They always put on an intense live show but this should be a special one. Inter Arma’s new album, Paradise Gallows, is being released by Relapse Records on July 8th and since this is the first date on their tour supporting the album, we’ll be among the first to hear some of these new tunes, and in a live setting no less! Support on this tour is provided by Withered, a black/death band from Atlanta, Georgia. They’ve also got a new album, Grief Relic, that was just released on Season Of Mist. Now check out these videos of the bands below (including a sick new Inter Arma track!) and let me know what your favorite metal album of the summer is!
