Free and legal metal downloads

Free and legal metal downloads
July 27, 2009, 05:11:05 PM
Bands are getting sick of the battle between record labels and the law, who insist we all use stupid DRM/copy protection, and fans who download everything and pay for nothing.

It's time for us -- the excluded middles, the silent majority -- who download a ton of stuff and then buy the 1% that isn't outright crap, to speak up.

One good way to do this is to list the free and legal downloads that metal bands are offering.

I'd like a thread that listed just the better quality bands...

Similar lists:

* NWN
* Metal Archives
* Free metal albums

Any other ideas appreciated.

We have put our debut up to download on our new website: http://www.cosmicatrophy.com

The upcoming album will follow in the same fashion.

Well, another idea is to simply look at the bands who offer full albums to be downloaded from their site without charge. Here are some:

Demilich - http://anentity.com/demilich/download.php
Eucharist - http://www.artnoir-productions.com/eucharist/mp3.html
Powermad - http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=144825783&blogId=356333721


And anus.com should start a net-label of course...

Metal Archives has already been noted, but this is the link to the thread exclusively for complete albums on the site:
