I first encountered Metropolis when they performed at the first Haworth Steampunk Weekend back in 2013. They put on a great show then and have continued to do so at every gig they’ve played at. It’s made them a firm favourite in the British steampunk community. That can be proven by the fact that their name always pops up in the hundreds of threads on social media asking what steampunk music is.
Based in Bury St Edmunds, the band formed in 2011 and have an album available called Out of Mind. It costs £9.99 and is available from Steampunk Records – the non-profit co-operative set up by BB Blackdog.
Take a look at what the band are doing on their website and maybe listen to some songs.
You can also follow them on their Facebook page.
The album is what’s available for the giveaway prize on the 22nd April.
Along with that, you will also receive a copy of The Vitruvian Heir by LS Kilroy. The Vitruvian Heir is a political thriller set in the distant future. Mass destruction has caused society to circle round to emulate the past. Women have few rights and religion is powerful.
The items to be given away on 22nd April are a copy of Out Of Mind by Metropolis and a paperback copy of The Vitruvian Heir by LS Kilroy .
I’d like to extend my personal thanks to Chris and the band along with LS Kilroy for donating these amazing prizes for the giveaway.
Make sure you watch the Facebook page for the winner being announced!
