[NOTE: As per Phaseinducer's comment, I've changed the host where you can get the file to Archive.org. Since they allow for direct linking, there's a player below. Thanks to all for reading and downloading.]
You may have noticed the fancypants banner on the right of the page (or the one above). It’s true, I put together a podcast. Sort of. I know dick-all about podcasting, so it’s basically just a collection of killer tunes for anyone interested. Before you decide to get the file (or don’t), there are a couple things you should know:
? These songs are all my rips.
? They were ripped directly from physical media (CDs) to wav form — no digital sources allowed — compiled in Sony SoundForge 10 and then converted to 256k mp3 for better sound quality than standard iPodular fare.
? The file is 279mb, and there is two and a half hours’ worth of music.
? I chose not to inject myself into the proceedings in some kind of DJ form. If this becomes a regular thing, I reserve the right to do so in the future.
? If I don’t get a serious response from this, I likely won’t do it again, because it’s time-consuming all around. Please share with someone you care about and tell them where you got it.
Because I wouldn’t have you go into this thing blind, the track list is after the jump. If you notice some glaring omissions (off the top of my head, I can think of Katatonia, House of Broken Promises, Snail and Paradise Lost, though I’m sure there are others), it’s probably because I didn’t have a physical copy of the album. Can’t win ‘em all. Appropriately, we start with Clutch…
