Sometimes bands post an album for free when they're prepping a release of a new album, or just if they want to get their name out there. If you come across any albums that are being offered for free, post the link here!

RULES:
1) State the band name and album name in your post
2) The download link must be provided on the band's official website
3) Your link must be to the band's PAGE with the download, not to the actual download link
4) No torrents, no Blogspot links, etc.
5) Don't promote your own band's music (unless you have professional quality bona fide full length album)

There's a load of free Metal albums in this thread. Yeah, there's lots of other stuff too, but I can't be bothered to cycle through 16 pages (at 40ppp, that is) and find JUST the metal albums.

Awesome, thanks! Had no idea such a thread already existed...I rarely venture out of the metal forum when I'm on UG

*NABEDIT: After skimming through the thread you posted, I've decided to keep this thread open...the other thread is full of singles, emo music, and self-promotion. Let's keep this metal thread open and show them what we can do.

Yeah, the other thread is hardly perfect. I'm just saying, there's actually quite a few free Metal gems I've found because of that thread. I'm currently transferring my music collection to my new desktop. But when that's done, I'll probably go ahead and throw a bunch of rec's in here (most of which originally came from that other thread).

Yeah, normally I'm not huge on sludge, but this album was great.

If you liked Forge of Clouds I can recommend Batillus as AWESOME sludge... sadly that album isn't free so it's not really relevant to the thread... BUT... still great.

Could we make it a thread rule that people aren't allowed to rec' their own stuff? It's just bad form.

Done - with a twist. If members here have full-length studio-quality albums, I think they should be allowed.
