Dark Tranquillity: Create the Family Tree and win cool DT stuff!
Swedish metal kings Dark Tranquillity have been around for a long time; the number of members that have been in other successful (and not so successful) bands — and the number of other bands with whom those bands share members — simply boggles the mind. DT are like the godfathers of Gothenburg, the lynchpin of the whole damn thing. So to celebrate our sponsorship of Dark Tranquillity’s current tour with Threat Signal and Mutiny Within (dates here) — and their new album We Are The Void — we’re having a contest in which we’re asking you to put it all down on (e-)paper.
So here’s what you’ve got to do: come up with the best and most creative Dark Tranquility “family tree” and create some kind of image or document charting the whole thing; it can be a traditional family tree, a venn diagram, a spreadsheet, pretty much anything that shows the relationships between all the various bands and members. All roads lead to Dark Tranquility, so remember to include as much as you can (i.e. In Flames, Soilwork, Scarve, Dimension Zero, etc etc etc). Simply email your image or document to news [at] metalsucks [dot] net with DARK TRANQUILLITY FAMILY TREE as the subject.
The deadline for entry is June 1st, the final date of the U.S. tour. The winner will be rewarded handsomely with a load of DT gear: CDs, special editions, DVDs, posters, shirts, basically anything the band and Century Media can find. This one should be a lot of fun for you Wikinerds, so let’s see what you’ve got. Good luck!
