Cosmic Doom & Inky Toons: The Ominous Black Mega-Contest

Lord, do we have a bizarrely amazing contest for you all this morning!
To celebrate their upcoming Steve Albini-produced 10-inch release on Anthropic Records, Philadelphia’s own self-described “down tuned psychedelic outer space beard metal” outfit Ominous Black has agreed not only to allow Decibel to stream one of these monsters of epic eclecticism, but is also offering up an exclusive tattoo designed by bassist Chris Kauth to be inked at Living Out Loud Tattoo Studio in Mount Laurel, New Jersey — the shop owned/operated by the band. (If the timing works, you also might very well find yourself in an upcoming Decibel video segment…)

Here is the design:

If that floats your boat, then while streaming “Salvaging the Thelemite that Resides Not Beyond” below head to the comments section and lay out your contingency plan for fighting off an invasion of actual psychedelic outer space beard metal aliens. The winner, chosen by the band, gets the tattoo, the 10-inch, and the satisfaction of knowing you are better prepared than anyone else for something that will (probably?) never happen.

All glory, hold the guts.

Ominous Black will play a record release show on August 19th at JR’s in Philadelphia with Before the Eyewall. Follow Anthropic Records on Facebook and Twitter.
