If you have yet to check out the music of Sanguisugabogg – you need to get on that right now. When it comes to the new wave of hardcore-influenced death metal, Sanguisugabogg has proven themselves to be one of the heaviest bands in the scene. Hell, Cannibal Corpse‘s George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher has thanked the band for “keeping death metal alive.”
Earlier this year the band released a new record, titled Homicidal Ecstasy. The band has been on the road promoting the album, and at a recent show of theirs, they went about a very chaotic (although exciting) means of getting their audience pumped up.
Taking to the microphone during their set, band vocalist Devin Swank held a football in his hand and shared that he was going to toss said football out into the crowd.
He then goes on to share that whoever ends up bringing him the football at the end of the set will get a free t-shirt.
Per video footage of this moment, which you can find below, you can watch Swank share this message with the band’s audience; the footage then cuts to a pile of dudes tearing at one another to get to the football.
Frankly, this is one of the coolest things we have ever seen go down at a concert. How often do you see a band inspiring audience participation in such a unique manner? And to give away free merch? That is cool as hell.
