Um, is that ‘Speed’ Strid? What is he doing with those kids? Seriously, this pic looks like a promo for a reality show…
*in my best Tom Bergeron* Can Metal’s superstars take these aspiring musicians to the top of the hard rock charts? It’s Metal Mentor!!
Anyway, the pictured band is Blinded By Bliss and their debut album is free to download. Doesn’t sound too bad if you’re into the kind of music you can tell these kids play by looking at them.
Y’know all these posts that have appeared suddenly and look like shit? Yeah, that’s because I imported my Tumblr blog. That was a mistake.
I’ll fix it.
In the meantime, why not just visit my Tumblr page and subscribe to my Twitter feed (@frugalbrutal) while I spruce up?
spend myself broke on tunes Metal Month! Amazon has some great deals on digital, CD and even Vinyl releases. Check it out.
I suggest going to your local independent music retailer too. They usually have bargains throughout the month, as well.
Newegg has House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Cut for $20, free shipping. The game is a hoot, 3D enabled & Move compatible.
Monarch has that and throws in some drone, for good measure. It’s like a brutal lullabye.
Brooklyn Vegan’s got thier latest long-player, Omens, streaming in its entirety and a 30 minute vid of a live performance. It’s all worth checking out, here.
Click here to jump to I/O where they’re giving away a copy of the album to a lucky winner.
I was debating posting this link or not because though streaming is free, purchasing the digital album will set you back $11! Not exactly a deal.
In the end, free streaming and a general love of Bandcamp’s model won.If you’re reading, Slice The Cake, drop that download price point. It’s better for you and us.
For connecting your Amazon.com account with your Twitter account, Amazon will give you a $1 credit goods towards an MP3 purchase. Remember that ‘March is Metal Month’ so there’s already some great deals to be had at Amazon. $1 off makes ‘em sweeter.
