organic_infest-penitenceOn the anniversary of the release of its first recording, Puerto Rican death metal band Organic (formerly Organic Infest) is releasing its four recordings — two albums, an EP and a single — for free download on its ReverbNation page.

These songs are available for free listening. If you like them, you can purchase them in digital form, with 50% of the proceeds going to Fender Music Foundation, which provides musical instruments to students who cannot otherwise afford them.

Organic got its start with 1993’s Penitence which despite abysmal production showcased a new take on the guttural blasting style of percussive death metal favored by bands like Malevolent Creation and Cannibal Corpse. From there, the band explored a melodic avenue with its more recent works.

    The special occasion is the 20th anniversary of their debut release, Penitence. As a Puerto Rican who had no connection to (or even awareness of) the island’s metal scene, I’m having quite an interesting time now that I’m back in PR. I’ve been pleasantly surprised to find that, indeed, there’s a thriving metal underground here with various styles represented. Even if I’m not a fan of these styles, the fact that these bands exist in our cultural context is worth examining. As I become more familiarized with the local underground, maybe I could compile a short list of representative bands in PR that fellow hessians around the world might want to check out.

      Yes please. Always interesting from the historical and anthropological point of view even if the music doesnt hold up.

    seems to be a bit of an incongruity between this paragraph:

    “On the anniversary of the release of its first recording, Puerto Rican death metal band Organic (formerly Organic Infest) is releasing its four recordings — two albums, an EP and a single — for free download on its ReverbNation page.”

    and this one:

    “These songs are available for free listening. If you like them, you can purchase them in digital form, with 50% of the proceeds going to Fender Music Foundation, which provides musical instruments to students who cannot otherwise afford them.”
