This week for our Metal Issue, BORN OF FIRE and the Boston Phoenix raised their swords together and compiled this killer 15-track homegrown metal compilation, The Phoenix Born of Fire Volume 1, which you can listen to or download below for zero dollars and zero cents (click on a song to listen, use arrow keys to scroll for full playlist). It's also available for free download at bostonphoenix.bandcamp.com. If you happen to be out and about this weekend, point your phone at the QR code that's on the issue's cover, or leap leap through these internet portals of doom to grab the comp before the party rages tomorrow (Thursday, Aug. 25) at the official Metal Issue party at Born of Fire at O’Brien’s Pub in Allston. Death to false metal, yo.
