Abbath Is Holding a Corpse Paint Contest


In what has to be one of the better promotional efforts we’ve seen this year, Abbath, who may very well have the most easily-recognizable corpse paint design in all of metal, is holding a corpse paint contest. Entrants need to post a photo of themselves adorned in Abbath’s corpse paint template with the the hashtag #Abbathfacepaint. The contest runs from today, Friday, June 21 through Friday, July 5, after which a winner will be selected to receive a goody bag that includes Abbath’s new album, Outstrider, a t-shirt, and a tin of Abbath’s own corpse paintin’ paint.

Great idea, right? It’s not clear if Abbath himself will judge entries or not, but whatever… free stuff!!!

Watch a video announcing the contest below. Outstrider comes out July 5, the day the contest concludes.
