Contest! The 12 Days of Nuclear Blast Giveaways!

Here’s the deal. Nuclear Blast Records was nice enough to send me copies of several new releases over the past 12 months … and all of those CDs and DVDs have been piling up on my desk.

So I think I’ll give them away.

The plan is to do one or two contests each week between now and Christmas, with the winners receiving a random CD or DVD from my Nuclear Blast pile. Some of items in the pile include Hammerfall, Death Angel, Edguy, Avantasia, Slyosis, Mantic Ritual, Therion, Darkane and Success Will Write Apocalypse Across The Sky.

For today’s contest, simply answer the following question: Who is the most overrated guitarist in metal?

The answer should be a few sentences or a paragraph (this is an opinion question, after all, so I’m grading on content, not on you finding the answer I necessarily agree with). For example, you could write: “Yngwie Malmsteen is the most overrated guitarist, because any monkey can learn to play arpeggios if you train it long enough and reward it with a banana occasionally. Besides, Yngwie looks stupid on-stage: The man prances like a reject from a community theater production of ‘The Nutcracker.'”

So put on your thinking caps and some NB swag could be yours. Please send your answers to Please put “12 Days Contest” in the subject line.

The deadline is Friday at noon, Central Time. Good luck.
