So, here is another download from the ever reliable Roadrunner Records. As they have done for the last couple of years, they have released a free sampler album with a track from each of their acts that are playing Download this year.
It's brilliant idea, as I've remarked before, and I don't understand why more labels don't do this. Festivals have oodles of bands and it can't be easy to decide who you want to see. So, putting out a sampler to let people who are unfamiliar with your roster hear what your acts are like is a no-brainer. If they like what they hear, they are more likely to go and hear!
The tracks and artists on offer are as follows:
- Absolute Zero - Stone Sour
- Black Tongue - Mastodon
- Bruane Brenn - Kvelertak
- Witchtripper - Down
- Live It Up - Airbourne
- Anastasia - Slash
- White Trash Millionaire - Black Stone Cherry
- In Due Time - Killswitch Engage
- Ghost Walking - Lamb Of God
- Chaos Lives In Everything (feat. Skrillex) - Korn
