Third Update: new sales have been added below from Comatose Music and Deathwish Music.

Second Update: added new sales from Indie Merch, Sevared Records, Relapse Records, and The Omega Order.

Update: deals have now been added from Metal Blade, Give Praise, and Razorback Records.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are a point of much contention among the metal community (with its overall disdain for consumerism, commercial whoring, and conformity) - so much so that every year Daniel Vrangsinn's (Carpathian Forest) label Misantrof even releases the "Holy Fucking ANTIChristmas" compilation in December.

Despite that, many of the underground labels do offer sales and discounts the week of Thanksgiving, so if you're looking to get some quality metal, hardcore, or rock releases on a budget, this is the time to do it - and most of it is online or digital in nature, so as a bonus, you don't have to get stomped to death by a horde of deal hunters at 5 AM!

More links will be added throughout the week as labels and distros announce their various sales, so check back in often.

If actually buying music in physical format (and especially on vinyl) is more your thing than ordering online, then RECORD STORE DAY has compiled a handy list just for you of limited run, exclusive, or Black Friday-first releases only available in stores. Peruse the full list over here.

For the digital music junkies, AMAZON.COM has dozens of $5 digital hard rock and metal albums from bands like Arch Enemy, In This Moment, White Zombie, Lamb Of God, Chimaira, and many more. The deals run through the full month of November.

This week METAL BLADE RECORDS has select albums at 50% off - including new releases from Primordial, Antropomorphia, Anaal Nathrakh, Behemoth, and more.

On November 28th, DEATHWISH is offering 21% off most items with the coupon code "BLACKFRIDAY2014" and will also offer separate lightning deals throughout the day - check the label's Twitter page for details.

A389 RECORDINGS has a variety of bundle deals available offering 2 LPs plus a random 7” for $19.99. Browse the deals available (from bands like Homewrecker, Integrity, Full Of Hell, and more) at this location.

On Black Friday only (11/28), GIVE PRAISE RECORDS will offer 20% off everything in the store, which jumps up to 75% for Give Praise titles. On Friday you can browse the deals over here.

The RELAPSE RECORDS holiday sale kicks off on Black Friday. From November 28th - December 4th, all items in the store will be 20% off.

RAZORBACK RECORDS is offering $10 off any order of $30 or more from now until Sunday, November 30th.

Through December 31st, COMATOSE MUSIC has a "buy 3 CDs get 2 CDs free" sale (free CDs must equal $20 or less)

For the devout among us, (or those who can just dig music that doesn't jive with your worldview) CHRISTIAN METAL DISTRO is slashing prices off the entire store by 30% with the coupon code “UNBLACK2014” and every order placed will include a free copy of the “Best Of 2014” Roxx Records compilation release.

HELLS HEADBANGERS has a rotating list of free digital compilations available for download. Click here to see what's currently up for grabs.

INDIE MERCH STORE has coupon codes going for a percentage off your order on specific days. Get 20% off on Black Friday (11/28) using the code "11281420" and on Saturday (11/29) get 15% off with the code "11291415."

Prior to the official Black Friday sale, SHADOW KINGDOM RECORDS is offering 10% off everything in the label's website with the promo code “BLACK14,” which expires at midnight the night before Thanksgiving (November 26th). A new sale will then kick off on Black Friday.

The SEVENTH RULE RECORDS webstore here has dropped the price of all CDs to $5, and is offering select LPs for 10 bucks and double LPs for 15.

If you buy 3 CDs, SEVARED RECORDS will send you a free CD priced $10 or less (write the free CD in the comments section when ordering).

THE OMEGA ORDER is offering 30% off most items in the webstore and you can get a free t-shirt with your order using coupon code "Breakin" at checkout.

If you really want to scare the hell out of grandma, CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS continues to offer hilariously evil Christmas themed gifts, from inverted pentagram Christmas sweaters to Baphomet tree ornaments.
