OBSCURA VAPORIZER CONTEST WINNERS ANNOUNCED!
Awww, yeah. In case you don’t recall, MetalSucks recently offered MS Maniacs a chance to win an amazing, ONE OF A KIND, Silver Surfer-produced, Obscura vaporizer (above), with a retail value of $600 — and to sweeten the deal, we tossed in some copies of Obscura’s orgasm-inducingly good new album, Omnivium (out now on Relapse — order one here!), and some killer Obscura merch, too. What did fans have to do for a chance to win? Why, design weed smoking apparati that would be ideal for use in outer space (in keeping with the theme of Obscura’s album art for both Omniviumand Cosmogenesis), of course.
Now, clearly, vaporizing and metal are two subjects very close to the hearts of MetalSucks readers — and so we got a lot of great entries. But, alas, there could only be one grand-prize winner, and two runners-up. So after much deliberation, the members of Obscura themselves have now selected those champions! And the winning entries are pretty mind-blowing.
Check out said entries after the jump. And don’t forget that Obscura are on tour right now with Children of Bodom, Devin Townsend, and Septicflesh starting June 24. Get remaining dates here.
GRAND-PRIZE WINNER: CANEA AT THE EXCUSE
RUNNER-UP #1: CHRIST
“So here’s what it is. The bottom’s just a bong, alien’s blood for water. Then it splits off from there into tubes. The tubes carry the smoke to the top, where the super-hi tech space taped-metal transports the smoke to your lungs. The before mentioned tubes wrap around a plasma ball, that electrifies your smoking choice before going into your body. Mmmm, electric rays.”
