Upcoming Shows on GIMME METAL:
GIMME METAL Vinyl Club: October Selection – The October selection of GIMME METAL‘s Vinyl Club is Death’s iconic Leprosy full-length along with a limited collectible GIMME METAL enamel pin. Released in 1988, Death’s Leprosy cemented the band’s role as progenitors of the death metal genre, their ripples to be felt for decades to come. Now-late founder Chuck Schuldiner migrated coasts and back during the early days of the band, regrouping after the first album with former guitarist Rick Rozz and several members of his own band Massacre to advance ideas laid out on their impressive debut Scream Bloody Gore. It would be Rozz’s only record with Death, full of blazing fury and total destruction, and was voted #1 of the 25 Most Important Death Metal Releases by Germany’s Hard Rock Magazine. The GIMME METAL Vinyl Club proudly offers a limited-to-300 edition pressing of the record on neon magenta and bone white half and half with gold and aqua blue splatter vinyl. Snap it up while you can! Monthly Fee: $25.99. Only a few spots remain. Learn more here: https://found.ee/GimmeMetalVinylClub.

On Franckensteina Strataemontanus, Carach Angren resurrected the gruesome story of the troubled soul Conrad Dippel, the inspiration of Mary Shelly’s novel Frankenstein.

We welcome Carach Angren to the guest DJ booth on GIMME!
