And still the men chatted pleasantly , and smiled. Was it possible they heard not? Almighty God! — no, no? They heard! — they suspected! — they KNEW! — they were making a mockery of my horror! — this I thought, and this I think. But anything was better than this agony! Anything was more tolerable than this derision! I could bear those hypocritical smiles no longer! I felt that I must scream or die! — and now — again — hark! louder! louder! louder! LOUDER! —

“Villains!” I shrieked, “dissemble no more! I admit the deed! — tear up the planks! — here, here! — it is the beating of his hideous heart!”

We’re nearing the end of our big competition this month – day four we’re on! The “Take A Massive Steaming Poe” has been fun, but it ain’t over yet, even though the first, second, third and fourth sections of which are NOW CLOSED.

This time last Thursday we asked you to swing by Australian post-metallers The Matador‘s Facebook page and tell us to which of famed author Edgar Allen Poe’s works does the above picture relate. Well, it’s pretty obvious that it’s a heart, which could mean only one thing; but to tie it in even closer, we chose a screenshot from The Simpsons episode “Lisa’s Rival“, which follows a similar plot to the story we were hinting at – albeit less gruesome.

The story we were referring to was “The Tell-Tale Heart” – almost if not as famous as “The Raven” – in which an old man is murdered, and the killer’s guilt drives him to confession.

The knowledge wasn’t too context-dependant, so a bunch of you sent your answers in, but the lucky winner on this occasion is Eric Yanyo!

Cool swag bro. Your details are with the band, who will send you your gear.

As for the rest of you, there is still ONE final chance to win – it’s the final 24 hours, so make sure you don’t miss out! The lastwinner, for day five, will be announced this time tomorrow.
