The folks at Cruz Del Sur and ClawHammer PR are good people. So good, in fact, that they gave us some great albums to give one lucky reader, which makes us good people by proxy. Or something like that. Anyway, we’re stoked to be able to provide three brand new Cruz Del Sur CDs to one of you, and we’re going to make it pretty easy to throw your hat into the ring. First things first, this is what’s being tossed into the cauldron:
1. The new record from Last Rites favorite, Argus, which Dan discusses here.
Argus – From Fields of Fire
2. The latest release from Finland’s Mausoleum Gate, which Manny reviewed here.
Mausoleum Gate – Into a Dark Divinity
3. And finally, the new split from doomsters Hands of Orlac and The Wandering Midget, which flew right underneath the LR radar.
Hands of Orlac / The Wandering Midget (Split)
Nice, right? To enter, just leave a comment below, naming your current album of the year. You’re welcome (encouraged, in fact) to defend and debate your pick with us and other readers, but each commenter will receive a single entry to the contest, and a winner will be selected at random using a highly sophisticated algorithm created exclusively for Last Rites by an aimless gnome we found wandering around our garden. We’ll announce the winner on Halloween.
EDIT: We have a winner. Congrats to Rob St. Amant. Enjoy, Rob.
