Digital download store Metalhit.com has launched the first of many future monthly compilations to be available for free download worldwide. Owner, Mike Riddick, comments:
"What’s unique about these monthly compilations is that they will feature as-of-yet unreleased tracks from metal bands spanning a variety of genres. Metalheads want to be ‘in the know’ on the latest titles, and what better way to do this than to offer up legal downloads of the latest from metal’s greatest labels...days-to-weeks before their official release!"
Metalhit’s first compilation includes 11 downloadable tracks from Agoraphobic Nosebleed, While Heaven Wept, Blut Aus Nord, Feral, Necros Christos, Nightshade, Putridity, Satan’s Host, Spearhead, Hope for the Dying, and Leaves’ Eyes.
The compilation can be downloaded at this location. Another set of free songs will be available in May.
