Good morning, future winners!
The eclectic Athens, Georgia label Mylene Sheath -- the origin story/name is explained here -- has a taste for driving, droning, exploding epic/ethereal metal and they're wagering a few Decibel readers do, too. In fact, they'll see your jaded skepticism and raise you a couple exclusive streams from the upcoming Beneath Oblivion/Angel Eyes split and throw in a pretty goddamn generous give away -- you know, just to make things interesting.
Here's what's at stake:
One Grand Prize Winner will receive a TEST PRESS of split 7" w/alternate hand-screened jackets exclusive to the test presses (limited to 10 copies in existence), plus copies of the 7" on red vinyl (limited to 100), clear vinyl (limited to 200), and grey vinyl (limited to 200). Also included in the prize pack is a Mylene Sheath turntable slipmat, issue #3 of The Mylene Zine (featuring an interview with Ian MacKaye), and a Mylene Sheath T-shirt.
First Runner Up takes home a complete set of the 7" on red vinyl, clear vinyl, and grey vinyl, and a Mylene Sheath turntable slipmat.
Second Runner Up walks away with a copy of the 7" on red vinyl and a Mylene Sheath turntable slipmat.
Third Runner Up receives a copy of the 7" on clear vinyl.
