"Compendium of Metal Vol. 6" and 2013 release plan.
"Compendium of Metal Vol. 6" will be released on April 19th at the Keep It True festival.
Our new compilation CD features 14 songs of 13 bands, and this time most of the songs on it are previously unreleased (MELIAH RAGE and METAL LAW), previously unreleased versions (SKELATOR, BATTLERAGE, NOMAD SON and ARKHAM WITCH), or rare tracks previously only self-released by the bands (MORTALICUM and STONEGRIFF). Apart from this, there are new songs (SACRED GATE and ATTACKER), and only 3 songs are taken from our 2011 and 2012 releases (OUTRAGE, HERETIC and AFTER OBLIVION).
The CD, released with an informative 8 pages booklet (this time we didn't include the back catalogue as we decided there's no use, mostly because it becomes outdated soon), and jam-packed with old school metal in various styles (70 minutes of music), costs 6,00 Euro, but you can have it for 4,00 Euro if you order it with a regular CD from our catalogue (we have added this option to every single CD page in our SHOP). You can purchase the bundle of "Compendium of Metal" Vol 5 + Vol 6 as well - this 2-CD bundle costs only 8,00 Euro. The album is also available as digital download from our Bandcamp page for 3,00 Euro only.
We put only 7 songs in the player, but you can preview all 14 tracks (about 1-minute excerpts) from the album trailer/promo clip we prepared and uploaded on YouTube.
