Eye Am, the band featuring Type O Negative guitarist Kenny Hickey and drummer Johnny Kelly alongside current Crowbar frontman Kirk Windstein and ex-Crowbar bassist Todd Strange, is gearing up to release their new single "Cryptomnesia" on November 24. Metal Injection recently teamed up with Corpse Paint Records to present one hell of a contest to go with it – we'd fly down one fan (and a guest) for a whole day spent with Eye Am in their recording studio alongside the opportunity to be the first person to listen to their new track "Cryptomnesia".
Superfan Nina Himes won and naturally she had a great time! "When I first saw the email saying I was the winner of the Eye Am contest, I honestly didn't believe it!" said Himes. "I am such a huge fan of metal, and one of my favorite bands of all time is Type O Negative. Having the chance to meet the whole Eye Am group was unbelievable. Everyone was very friendly and genuine.
"Andrew Spaulding from Corpse Paint went above and beyond to make this experience happen. Eye Am is creating music that is not only is really good, but it is different from any of the other bands these guys have been in before, creating their own sound without the restraints of worrying what they are 'expected' to sound like."
Added Spaulding: "You truly can't buy experiences like that This was Corpse Paint's first big promotion and I'll be honest, at first, I was kind of wondering if I bit off more than I could chew, but with the awesome team I have surrounded myself with, it went off with a bang! I think we have set the bar on what we are going to do in the future. I'm really excited."
