Win a Spinefarm Records goody bag!

We just got back from Finland where the annual Spinefeast At Sea was taking place. You won’t believe how bad our hangovers are. Still. (Until you see them on the three-part video we’ve made, of course).

Most importantly, we nicked a whole load of swag from the Spinefarm Records HQ while we were in snowy Finland. We’ve stuck a bunch of CDs, a heavy metal (plastic) frisbee, a Rotten Sound t-shirt and some signed posters in a goody bag and YOU could win it. That frisbee will be fun in a few months.

Last time Spinefarm Records’ flagship band, Children Of Bodom were in London, we happily labelled them The Drunkest Band We’ve Ever Seen. Now we completely understand why. Finnish people are mad but Spinefarm people are madder. We love them so.

In between watching Moonsorrow, Rotten Sound, Metsätöll, Entwine, Kiuas, Kalmah, Celesty and Deathlike Silence, we realised that we were doing a lot of things in Finland that we don’t normally do:

1. Contemplate eating a reindeer’s liver. Cooked, naturally.
2. Eat salad on a boat.
3. Eat salad.
4. Watch heavy metal… just kidding.
5. Drink salmiakki – liquorice shots fucking rule.
6. Perform heavy metal karaoke with strangers who had no qualms in windmilling for 4 minutes in front of 50-odd people.

Uh huh. To be in with a chance of winning a Spinefarm Records goody bag, just enter the competition by answering the following, bloody easy question correctly:

What is the name of Children Of Bodom’s singer?

a) Jonny Bodom
b) Alexi Laiho
c) Graham

Your Name
Your Email Address
Your Telephone Number


The closing date for general entries is 11am Monday, 02 March 2009. The winners will be notified by telephone and/or email.

Don’t forget that Spinefarm Records’ other major success of 2008, Californian metallers Five Finger Death Punch are currently about to head out on the Defenders Of The Faith tour. We’ve got another competition where you can win tickets for that one.
