Soulitude has put out a lot of free/pay-what-you-want albums. I recall Crawlian Conspiracy was good, and I see he's done a few since then!

Here is a long thread on doom-metal.com:
http://www.doom-metal.com/phpbb2/viewto ... =10&t=3468

The thread started seven years ago, and you should likely start on the last post. In particular, do NOT click on the freemetalalbums.com link in the first post - the domain is hijacked by one of those Wait, you have WON! You really don't wanna close this awesome fraud page do you? scamsters.

Cum Sock 2007 Demo
https://legsakimborecords.bandcamp.com/ ... 5-cum-sock
Toronto, On, Canada , Noise / hardcore / crust. Maybe NYC Mayhem fans will like this.

I have a few releases, but this might be all you need to hear.
I think Othmer is the man who created the (one man?) "bands" Cumsock, Ostie, and The Dead Chretiens.

not a "band thing" per se, but Chris Jericho of FOZZY, and a WWE wrestler - his latest podcast - http://podcastone.com/Talk-Is-Jericho

The Story of Metal Blade Records with Brian Slagel

Brian Slagel discovered Metallica, launched the career of Armored Saint, and was the first to sign Slayer to a record deal. He was also one of Lars Ulrich's first friends when Lars moved to the States. And those are just a few of the stories that Brian's sharing on TIJ! You'll also find out how Metal Blade Records grew out of the release of one compilation tape, what happened to Armored Saint (who were supposed to be bigger than Metallica), and how the advent of the cassette tape nearly bankrupted his label. Plus, Brian's talking death metal, streaming music, and the return of vinyl!

as Malinku (R.I.P) posted on the first page of this thread, downloads of classic death metal legends Demilich (releases, covers, etc.) is for free on their website.
https://www.anentity.com/demilich/download.php
https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Demilich/250

gravedigger84 wrote:Does anyone remember if any of these albums were released as free by the band?:

Defender (HOL) - City Ad Mortis (not sure if it was by this name)
Heathen (US) - either Victims Of Deception or Breaking The Silence
Spartan Warrior (UK) - Steel 'n Chains

because I remember that I would had read about those in the past, but I tried to search a sources to confirm this on the part of any of these albums but could not find one. Heathen's official website was down. Spartan's and Defender's official website I couldn't find. Some of myspace of facebook sites were up but didn't contain info.

Both of those were released for free by the band. I downloaded them at the time.

When I first started downloading in 2007, Heathen's site offered both albums. Maybe saved them on a cd-r still too.
A few times over the years when I would see those two shared on forums, I would know where they came from, if there were glitches in a couple songs (due to whoever originally ripped them/uploaded onto HEATHEN's site! haha!) https://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Heathen/378

Angel Sword - The Midwinter Tapes (Heavy Metal): This is, sadly, the only release by this band that is name your price. KInd of reminds me of Running Wild, personally. https://angelsword.bandcamp.com/album/the-midwinter-tapes

Angel Witch - Seventies Tapes (NWOBHM): This is a compilation of the demos that Angel Witch made in the 70s and was released as name your price in the wake of Grenfell Tower fire. I actually prefer these demos to the LP, to be honest. https://angelwitch.bandcamp.com/album/seventies-tapes

Hellix - Against Rationalism (Technical Thrash Metal): If you like WatchTower, it's all but guaranteed that you'll enjoy this. This was one of my favorite releases last year, and it's three tracks of insane technical fury. https://hellixjpn.bandcamp.com/releases

HellSword (Black Metal): This band's complete discography is for offer as name your price. In the vein of Venom or a grimier Motorhead, for the most part. I especially recommend Blasphemy Unchained. https://hellsword.bandcamp.com/

Lycia (Darkwave): Not metal, but anybody who enjoys stuff like The Sisters of Mercy will probably enjoy this. The entire back catalogue is here. It's remastered, but the sound quality is still great. I recommend A Day in the Stark Corner, Cold, and Tripping Back Into the Broken Days. https://lycia.bandcamp.com/

NNGNN - Death By The Venomhammer (Black Metal): I haven't listened to this one for a while, I will admit, but the release was great. I remember there being a vibe not unlike stuff like Kreator. Apparently they released a new EP (that you have to pay for), but I haven't checked it out yet either. https://nngnn.bandcamp.com/album/death-by-the-venomhammer

Volture (Speed Metal): Furious speed metal madness from Virginia. Highly recommended. https://volture.bandcamp.com/

If I remember anything else, I'll add it to this.

TKO - Ace Of Spades (A Tribute To Lemmy) 2017

https://f4.bcbits.com/img/a0664150131_16.jpg

https://badbradsinsel.bandcamp.com/album/ace-of-spades



Vocals - Brad Sinsel (WAR BABIES, SUICIDE SQUAD, THRASHER, ANGELS OF DRESDEN, AMERICAN STANDARD)
Guitar - Rick Pierce (SUICIDE SQUAD, Q5, NIGHTSHADE)
Guitar - Brynn Arens (OBSESSION, FUNHOUSE, AMERICAN STANDARD, FLIPP, RATTLING BONES, THE ODDFATHERS)
Bass - Evan Sheeley (Q5, NIGHTSHADE, WIDOW, JAMES BYRD)
Drums - Carl Canedy (THE RODS, THRASHER, MANOWAR, RHETT FORESTER, THE LONE RAGER, KELAKOS, JACK STARR, DAVE FEINSTEIN, CANEDY, THE JEFFERY JAMES BAND, CANEDY FEINSTEIN BORDONARO & CAUDLE, JOHN HAHN, KILLEN)

Seattle legends TKO recently recorded their first new material since 1986's 'Below The Belt' album, a high-octane version of the MOTÖRHEAD classic "Ace Of Spades" as a tribute to Lemmy.

Immediately following Lemmy's death, the surviving members of MOTÖRHEAD reached out to their fans and simply requested that they "play Lemmy's music loud. Have a drink or few. Share stories. Celebrate the LIFE of this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself."

TKO gathered together to follow those instructions on a dreary Saturday while tuning into the live broadcast of Lemmy's "Celebration Of Life." Brad Sinsel, frontman for TKO, WARBABIES and ANGELS OF DRESDEN, took things a step deeper in his search for closure in the matter. Speaking with guitarist Rick Pierce, bassist Evan Sheeley, guitarist Brynn Arens, Sinsel asked with a grin, "How 'bout we go in and record some MOTÖRHEAD? Who's game?" Immediate reaction from everyone was "Hell yeah!" Sinsel's next call was to Carl Canedy, drummer for THE RODS. Sinsel said: "I couldn't think of anyone more fitting to do this with."

TKO entered the studio in celebration of what they viewed as a rock 'n' roll life well lived. Although the plan was never to release the recordings to the public, the final decision was made to issue "Ace Of Spades" as a loving tribute to Lemmy.

Canedy has checked in to share his favorite memory of Lemmy: "When THE RODS opened for MOTÖRHEAD at the Calderone Concert Hall in Hempstead, Long Island, New York, we were in the middle of recording our 'Live' album for Combat Records. It was a crazy time for us and I remember having been called to the back of the venue during MOTÖRHEAD's set. They were so loud that even outside we had to yell to each other to be heard. MOTÖRHEAD was so loud, I couldn't believe it. As we'd been called the 'American MOTÖRHEAD' in the first Sounds review by Geoff Barton, I was eager to see them live. They didn't disappoint. It was truly one of the loudest shows I've ever seen.

"After the show, Lemmy hung out with us at the back of the venue. I remember him being a really good guy. He had his arm around me chatting and offering me his seemingly 'never-ending' beer. He was patient and kind to the fans. The nicest and most unpretentious guy I'd met in the music business. A true metal icon!"
