COMPLETELY UNREADABLE BAND LOGO OF THE WEEK, BROUGHT TO YOU BY ROADRUNNER RECORDS – WIN A COPY OF A TOP SHELF TWO DISC EDITION OF TYPE O NEGATIVE’S BLOODY KISSES
Horns up for Kaitlyn Kerrane and Tristan Williams, both of whom correctly identified last week’s logo as belonging to the band Gastrorrexis. They each win a copy of Nightwish’s Made in Hong Kong (And in Various Other Places). Enjoy it, friends!
Also, fuck Colin F. He guessed that the band was Slipknot. I’m like 98.5% sure he was just kidding, but, still, it wasn’t funny and fuck him in the ear.
ANYWAY, this week’s logo was suggested to us (once again) by Attila Korsós. It’s a fucking doozy, but the prize is totally worth it: a special Roadrunner Records Top Shelf 2 Disc Edition of Type O Negative’s classic 1993 album, Bloody Kisses. In addition to the album itself – which fucking kicks so much fucking ass and Vince and I blasted I think about a gajillion times back when it came out – this version comes with a second disc of bonus tracks, PLUS an awesome booklet that includes a really, really, really detailed interview about the album, conducted by Decibel’s always awesome J. Bennett. Here’s an excerpt:
Who’s the girl moaning on “Machine Screw?”
KEYBOARDIST JOSH SILVER: That was an ex-girlfriend. But I didn’t actually screw her; she screwed me. And I mean that in every sense of the word… Type O has obviously spent a lot of time, regardless of what album it is, mourning relationships. Obviously Peter has had some troubled ones. “Nothing but love songs” – that’s been our slogan forever. They’re all love songs.
In conclusion: if you already know and love this album, this version will give you way more insight into its creation; and if you don’t know and love it, here’s your chance to own something awesome. I have three (3) copies to give away this week and then I’ll have some more for ya next week.
All you have to do to win is identify the name of the band whose logo appears below, then shoot me an e-mail with your answer, your name and address at axl AT metalsucks DOT net. We’ll randomly select three winners from everyone who gets it right, and announce his or her names next week.
Good luck, and remember: the answer still isn’t Slipknot.
