In conjunction with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, heavy metal record label Century Media will hold a food drive at the label’s parking lot sale on December 7, 2013. Those who are not local or can’t make it can donate online.

The parking lot sale and food drive will take place from 12-4PM on December 7 at Century Media’s US office at 2323 W. El Segundo Blvd., Hawthorne, CA 90250. For more details about this event, please visit the event’s Facebook page.

If helping others for the holiday isn’t your only motivation, other benefits exist as well. USA residents who donate $20 or more will receive 20% off their CM Distro order between Jan. 1 and Jan. 31 and receive a free vinyl slipmat. If you attend, and bring one of the following items, you will receive a free gift courtesy of Century Media:

  • Canned protein (such as tuna, sardines, stews, and soups)
  • Peanut butter
  • Jelly
  • Canned fruits and vegetables
  • Fruit juices
  • Beans
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Personal care items (such as lotion, deodorant, and toothpaste)

    Help the homeless!?
    Is the author of this post the same person that wrote Radical Traditionalism and Nihilism, Populism and Crowdism?
    Jesus Krist! Bring back Vijay Prozak and send Brett Stevens on vacation.

        No doubt. At this pace, it’s just a matter of time before he tells us that Pantera was actually good all along.

      This is a metal blog; we report on the news. One aspect of that is the collection of stuff that metal heads, metal labels and metal fans do that our society considers positive. My personal assessment doesn’t come into play at all here.

      Initiatives like the Metal Meowlisha, this homeless-feeding arrangement from Century Media, and the various charity shows that metal bands play are integral to showing the relationship between an outsider genre and its host society.

      Whether flawed or not, these are attempts to give back and should be encouraged. If Century Media does a tree-planting next year — that’s a challenging thing to do in downtown LA — maybe that will address a wider scope of issues.

        Maybe they should kill the homeless and use the nutrients to nourish the newly planted trees?

        That’s what you are saying, right?

        RIGHT?

          Composting meat is more time-consuming than most people think. LA is additionally difficult for composting because it is so dry.

          I guess my dream here is an army of homeless people armed with scythes dismembering mall-core, nu-mu, tek-deaf, wheedle-core, shoegaze-black, post-metal, etc. bands and eating their intestines, but that may be a bit idealistic.

            Right, I didn’t think about the dryness in LA.

            Arm them with home-made body armor and have them stroll down the street, killing hipsters.

            It worked pretty well in the 1997.

    Think of it this way: every minute these people are busy amassing food for the homeless, they’re not putting out shit-tier records.
