I'm usually very picky when it comes to posting links that offer free music but this one is definitely to good to keep for myself. Nuclear Blast is a Record Label that was founded in Germany and focuses on certain variants of Metal including Grindcore, Blackmetal and Melodic Death Metal and Hardcore Punk.
Some popular bands that they have currently under contract are Kataklysm, Nightwish and In Flames. That was a rather long introduction but if you like that kind of metal you might want to head straight to Amazon USA to download free songs from the Nuclear Blast record Best of Nuclear Blast: 20th Anniversary Compilation.
Nine songs can be downloaded freely including two from Kataklysm which is definitely on of my favorite bands at the moment. Here is the list of songs available for download:
1. Taking the World by Storm - Kataklysm
2. Chains of Power - Kataklysm
3. Blut Im Auge - Equilibrium
4. More Than Meets The Eye - Testament
5. The Formation of Damnation - Testament
6. We Are the Nightmare - Arsis
7. Shattering the Spell - Arsis
8. Bleed - Meshuggah
9. Riot Act - Exodus
Users need an Amazon.com account and have to download an Amazon Downloader which will download the selected songs for them.
Update: It is interesting to note that the Nuclear Blast collection is still available for free at the Amazon website. It is possible to get the full album right away using the Amazon Mp3 downloader, or individual tracks that are included on the album.
Amazon is carrying additional free metal albums. You find a short selection below:
You find more albums in the related items section on each album's page on the Amazon website. Previews are available for the majority of metal tracks offered for free on Amazon.
Update 2: It appears that the albums have been pulled from Amazon. We have removed the links as a consequence. This does not mean though that you can't find free music on Amazon anymore, only that the particular albums are not available anymore.
