GIMME METAL TV, in cooperation with Season Of Mist Records, is pleased to announce its first ever livestream event with black metal outfit Gaerea this February!
Launched early last Fall, GIMME METAL TV combines the power of MTV-like linear broadcasting with livestreaming, and offers music videos, short form artist-created content, long form music documentaries, movies, and so much more.
Portugal’s Gaerea challenges the archetype of black metal, coloring outside of the genre’s lines with melancholy texture and deep emotion. Their latest full-length, Limbo, out now on Season Of Mist, devours its listeners with misanthropic catharsis and cinematic agony, delivering palpable emotion for fifty-two uninterrupted minutes.
Set to take place February 13th at 3:00pm EST / 12:00pm PST, the livestream will find Gaerea performing Limbo in its entirety for the first time ever. Additionally, the band will be selling exclusive merch and be present for a live Q&A in the chat. Prepare to lose yourself in the nihilistic abyss of their devastating live performance.
Tickets are $10.00 and available now via the GIMME app at THIS LOCATION.
Issues GIMME CEO Tyler Lenane of the channel’s inaugural virtual event, “GIMME is going to do for ticketed live events what it did for metal music streaming: reinvent the experience by focusing on building community around the music. Doing our first ticketed event with Season Of Mist is super exciting. They are a total force when it comes to discovering new and unique talent in metal. I think Gaerea is a great example of that. Season Of Mist have been amazing partners to GIMME since we started, and it only makes sense that we should be working together on this new service.”
In advance of the livestream, Gaerea will be hosting a GIMME METAL guest DJ special February 1st at 3:00pm EST / 12:00pm PST! Log-in and join the band in the livechat!How to purchase tickets for a GIMME livestream:
