Last year Allston-based metal night BORN OF FIRE joined forces with the Phoenix for one of the most successful compilations we’ve ever issued. So how do we top that? By dropping Vol.2, this free 17-track online comp that features brand new SHADOWS FALL, DOOMRIDERS covering fucking Devo, and two bands featured in this week’s second annual Metal Issue: Cellars by Starlight spotlight RULE, who release their debut EP Friday night at T.
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 after the jump for zero dollars and zero cents. Plus: info on our issue-release party and end of summer BBQ at O'Brien's.
This doesn’t happen very often, so brace yourself for the biggest MP3 of the Week trifecta ever: PHANTOM GLUE’s “Phantom Glue” off Phantom Glue. As that unlikely trinity might suggest, this is the sound of a sludge-metal band in the throes of full stonerific self-realization. And it’s a brute-iful thing.
