Over the past couple of weeks, we've reported on numerous free label samplers and compilations, not realizing that most have been in appreciation of March Is Metal Month.
EMI Music’s Label Services is bringing metal to the masses with their “March is Metal” campaign with retailers across the US. The retail campaign includes promotions from such legendary labels as Century Media, Nuclear Blast, Earache and Candlelight along with Season of Mist, Willow Tip, Crash Music, Prospect Park and Capitol.
Along with the sampler, which includes tracks from Lacuna Coil, Five Finger Death Punch, Fear Factory, White Wizzard, Ihsahn, Gama Bomb, The Atlas Moth, Queensryche, Exodus and Arsis along with hotly anticipated pre-release tracks from Triptykon and Defeated Sanity, ELS and Caroline will also offer a limited edition T-shirt designed by Rich Hall and the MMM logo will appear on the Testament/ Exodus tour poster as a sponsor for the tour. They also sponsored “Full Metal Texas” at this year’s SXSW.
"EMI Label Services and Caroline Distribution have the privilege of working with the best labels in the Metal genre. The annual 'March is Metal Month' campaign is a platform for us to expose the great repertoire from these partners to both the trade and consumer alike,” stated Dominic Pandiscia SVP / GM of EMI Label Services and Caroline Distribution.
During the month of March, Amazon.com has a nice metal sale in their MP3 store with loads of great albums for download for $6.99 each, including most of Megadeth's Capitol-era releases, the latest albums by Pelican, Orphaned Land, Devin Townsend, Lacuna Coil, and many more.
And while we're at it, let's recap the many samplers made available for free download this month. Here are several from Amazon.com, which unfortunately are only available to those in the United States:
Here are a couple more freebies from Amazon.com as a bonus:
Those outside of the USA can actually grab Southern Lord's compilation here. Don't forget that Fearless also offered up a free compilation as well (enter code "FACEDOWN"). Oh, and here's a couple from Thorny Bleeder Records that I just discovered the other day as well (just for good measure).
Enjoy the free music!
