Upcoming Bullsh*t

CHIMAIRA = WILLY WONKA

160

willywknaFew children’s authors are more metal than Roald Dahl. Think about it: besides perhaps The Brothers Grimm, what other writer of stories for young ‘uns are as full of violent death? More fucked up things happen in The Witches than every work by Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss combined.

(Roald Dahl was also a raging anti-semite. Which puts a whole other spin on things. But I digress.)

I mention it because of this nifty give away that Chimaira are doing as part of the release of their new album, The Infection:

CHIMAIRA has announced the Golden Ticket contest, which will give fans the chance to win a signature ESP guitar, a copy of Guitar Hero World Tour w/guitar, or a trip to see the annual Christmas show live in the band’s hometown! Each prize will be assigned a ticket to be randomly placed in three of the previously announced CHIMAIRA box sets, which are available for purchase here. The box set will be available on April 21, and there will only be 600 box sets produced, with the band signing the first 100!

Additionally, the laminate included in the box set will provide a website link that CHIMAIRA will update regularly. Fans can expect exclusive video and other surprises from the band to come!

It would be awesome if this whole thing ended in death and misery for some bitch who turns blue or some unlucky fat fuck, but chances are, all that will happen is that some Chimaira fan will end up being very, very happy. Which is cool too, I suppose.
