Contest: Decipher the Lyrics to Darkest Hour’s “Timeless Numbers” and Win a Ton of Awesome Stuff!
THE TIME IS ALMOST UPON US: Darkest Hour’s MetalSucks-sponsored tour in support of their new album, Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora, kicks off next week! Darkest Hour couldn’t put on a lousy show if they tried, but given that Godless Prophets is the band’s best album since 2005’s neo-classic Undoing Ruin, these shows promise to be EXTRA rad.
To celebrate, MetalSucks is teaming up with Darkest Hour to give away some sweet swag. Specifically:
- A copy of Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora on vinyl
- A hand-written lyric sheet from vocalist John Henry
- A Darkest Hour t-shirt
- One pair of tickets to any stop on the tour
Excellent, right? So how do you win?
We thought we’d have a little fun with this one. Metal screams are notoriously difficult to decipher, and those of Mr. Henry are no different. So here’s what you’re gonna do: listen to the Godless Prophets track “Timeless Numbers” below, then try and figure out what the heck John Henry is saying! In the unlikely event someone gets the lyrics 100% correct, that person will win; otherwise, Vince and Axl will pick the 3-4 entries they think are the funniest/most clever, and the band will determine a winner. Your very silly lyrics will be presented here on MetalSucks, natch.
And that’s it! Listen to “Timeless Numbers” below and get crackin’, then fill out an entry form when you’re ready! Please note that since this is a U.S. tour, the contest is only open to U.S. residents. Get all of Darkest Hour’s tour dates at the bottom of this post. And don’t forget that Go comes out March 10 on Southern Lord. You can pre-order physical copies here and digital editions here or here!!!
