10 Free Metal Albums You Should Check Out On Bandcamp
On: Sep 8th 2011In: What do you think?By: Patrick Saad

Nowadays, media streaming is becoming an essential part of the music industry. Bands treat fans and new listeners alike with a free song preview of an upcoming release, and later on offer digital downloads as an alternative to buying CDs. Services like Myspace, Facebook, Spotify, Grooveshark, and Last.fm have taken band promotion to the next level, but lately Bandcamp has become the desired media platform by artists and labels alike.

Bandcamp allows donation-based downloads which artists can offer in several digital formats (high or low quality). This means they can either set a fixed price for an album or individual songs, or let listeners set the price as they see fit. The latter of course means that the music can be downloaded free of charge.

Here are 10 free Metal albums on Bandcamp that you should check out. If possible, do donate to these bands and/or support them by buying their merchandise.
