COMPETE IN THE SLAYER OLYMPICS, WIN A PERSONALLY DEDICATED AUTOGRAPHED COPY OF D.X. FERRIS’ 33 1/3: REIGN IN BLOOD!!!
We’ve been talking up D.X. Ferris’ contribution to the 33 1/3 book series, on Slayer’s seminal album Reign in Blood, for some time now. Packed full of detailed analysis of the record as well as exclusive interviews with the band, producer Rick Rubin, engineer Andy Wallace, cover artist Larry Carroll, and a shitload of other cool people (Gene Hoglan, Paul Romano, Tori Amos, and Henry Rollins, just to name a few), this book is a thrash fan’s wet dream.
If for some reason you still haven’t bought a copy, here’s your chance to remedy that: MetalSucks, in association with author D.X. Ferris, is holding the Slayer Olympics. There are three events, with one winner to be named in each event; each winner gets a personally dedicated autographed copy of the book. Pretty friggin’ sweet, right?
So here are the events:
- EVENT #1: BEST ALTERNATE LYRIC FOR A SLAYER SONG. This is pretty straight-forward: take any Slayer lyric and change it to make it funny.
- EVENT #2: BEST GRAMMATICAL ERROR IN A SLAYER LYRIC. ‘Cause while the dudes in Slayer are metal gods, they’re not exactly A+ English students. Ferris will be checking this event personally, so, in his words, “You’re fuckin’ fooling yourselves if you think you can bluff your way through this.” You need to find legitimate grammatical errors AND be able to explain said error.
- EVENT #3: GNARLIEST PICTURE OF YOURSELF WITH A MEMBER OF SLAYER OR SLAYER MERCH. If you have a crazy photo of yourself giving Kerry King bunny ears or your girlfriend posing naked with a Seasons in the Abyss skateboard deck, here’s your chance to put it to good use and let it win you some cool shit.
All you have to do to win is submit your entry to any of the above categories in our comments section below. If you’re entering Event #3, you can either post a link to the photo or e-mail it to us at news [at] metalsucks.net. And like we said, Ferris himself will be helping us judge, so no dicking around! And if you’re not convinced that this awesome book is worth your effort, check out our interview with Ferris right here. Dude knows his shit and then some.
Good luck, and… SSSSSSSSSLLLLLLAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYEEEERRRRRRR!!!!!!
