It’s been too long since we last recommended Metality.net , a site that provides broad coverage of global metal but also has a special focus on metal from the Middle East. In the past they’ve released some kickass digital compilations that we’ve been delighted to co-sponsor, and this morning brings us the most impressive one yet — Volume 3: Global Waves of Destruction.
This comp features free music from around the world (with the permission of the labels and acts involved) that includes songs from the likes of Omnium Gatherum, Mors Principium Est, Scarab, Oblivion, Nervecell, Destinity, Nightrage, Universum, and Zonaria — that track from Egypt’s Scarab is brand new and will appear on their upcoming album, Serpents of the Nile
But the comp also includes a big collection of exclusive tracks by less well-known, unsigned bands that are definitely worth hearing — including some (like Voice of the Soul) that we’ve praised here at NCS in the past.
Here’s the track list, and after that you can hear the music and we’ll give you a download link for the comp if you like what you hear.
