Last week, we decided that we were going to give away a copy of Scale The Summit‘s stunning new album The Collective and we called upon you nice folks to test your proggy knowledge and skill by identifying the ‘M’ in MARCH in last week’s PMM logo. as a good 40 of you answered correctly, it was Dream Theater‘s Images and Words (right)! Unfortunately, we could only give out one copy and it went to lucky reader Mark from Charleston, South Carolina. Keep an eye on your mail box in the coming weeks, Mark! Thanks to all that entered!

This week, we’re also running a contest where you can win some killer merch and tickets to the Tech Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself tour, but that’s limited to those across the pond in the UK. To make up for it, we’ve decided to also do something a little more accessible and give away a free copy of The Human Abstract’s Digital Veil, which receives our highest praises!

To win, simply shoot an email over to mail(@) with the subject “Prog-Metal March: The Human Abstract” along your name, address, and the answer to the following question:

What is the name of the artist and album in the ‘T’ in “METAL” in our PROG-METAL MARCH header image?

Of all the people who answer correctly, we’ll randomly select one winner. If you don’t know it, start feeling ashamed NOW. You have about week to enter, as we pick the winner at midnight next Tuesday. As always, keep spreading the word about Heavy Blog! The more readers we get, the more we can afford to bring you sweet contests like this!

Thank you guys, and good luck!
