Hey, kids — did you know that a long time ago, we used to record sounds onto magnetic tape and listen to them on “Walkmans” that were like giant iPods and weighed almost a pound? They didn’t have screens or keyboards, and when you wanted to listen to something else, you had to insert a new cassette. (It’s true. Ask your parents.)
To prove it, Prosthetic Records, fine purveyor of extreme metal, is releasing seven albums on limited-edition cassettes, combining the best in thrashy tones with the best in analog imperfections. Sometimes the best way to listen to noisy music is with a noisy medium, and these cassettes deliver.
If you haven’t had the chance to experience magnetized metal, ALARM and Prosthetic are giving you the chance by giving away one of each cassette. As a bonus, we’re also including a tape player from an outreach program run by Aurora Ministries Bible Alliance, which almost surely didn’t intend for its gift to play tracks like Skeletonwitch’s “Sacrifice for the Slaughtergod” or Lamb of God’s “The Subtle Arts of Murder and Persuasion.” Analog blasphemy is the best kind of blasphemy.
Here are the seven tapes included in the giveaway:
Lamb of God: New American Gospel
Trap Them: Darker Handcraft
Skeletonwitch: Beyond the Permafrost
Ramming Speed: Doomed to Destroy, Destined to Die
Holy Grail: Ride the Void
Mutilation Rites: Empyrean

Oh, and here’s that holy tape roller:

cassettes rule….i was born before cds were invented (im 34)….i have a massive tape colllection and used to “trade” tapes with friends….i love this promotion…and that’s one pretty sweet tape player.
Oh man, now this is the holy grail of contests! (at least for me) I’m a metal tape collector, and those are all good bands that I would actually listen to. I MUST WIN THIS GLORIOUS CONTEST FOR THE LOVE OF SATAN!
cool 😛 I’m definietly entering this one 😛 because I love lamb of god and the other bands are great too.
Cassettes? Sure, why not?
Love the “holy” tape deck!

tapers rule and so does metal soo oldschool.
I wore out my last Bible Alliance tape player
HELL YEAH ITS GOOD TO SEE CASSETTES AND VINYL COMING BACK!
i´d like to win the praise..
Tapes dont scratch or skip, i miss tapes. Plus, even if you wanted to overplay a song, you’ll have to do it at a lesser pace.
It would be righteous should I be the lucky winner of that glorious prize!
Holy tape roller. I love it.
I also still have a tape collection. Some are in pretty rough shape, but I still bust them out sometimes. Alas, my tape player is broken. So this is the perfect opportunity.
Give me that sweet sweet cassette goodness!
I like tapes m/.
HOLY SHIT! I love analog blasphemy!
