It's 2016. It only seems like yesterday that I was stressing over the final bugs before launching this website on New Year's Day 2013. That was three years ago, and it has been a steady climb upwards ever since. For a niche subject matter such as dark culture, our readership continues to grow. Artists, fans, and industry people seem to value our opinions on the latest releases. Our features, and columns are widely viewed. And we've brought you some great interviews from some of the best names in the scene.
Not bad really.
Of course this can't be done without the help of you the readers. Therefore as you will have no doubt already seen, we have released another free download compilation in the form of 'Blood Pack Vol. 3'. Featuring 21 bands and 99 minutes of free gothic, industrial, electronic and metal tracks from artists such as Monomorte, Machine Rox, Human Traffic, ѦPѺLLYѺN'S ▼ISѦGE, and Ca†hedra plus many more exclusive and unreleased tracks.
Please head over to our bandcamp page and get your free download as soon as possible, then send the link to a friend. Play the tracks loud and proud and support the artists who kindly offered their hard work up to us.
On bandcamp we get 200 free downloads per month and we nearly hit our limit less than 24 hours after the compilations release prompting me to buy more free download credits, so please make the best of them.
And if you haven't already got them, there is also 'Blood Pack Vol. 1' and 'Blood Pack Vol. 2' still available to download for free!
That's a total of 56 free songs + three PDF booklets with information on each artist!
I know we're good to you.
But please enjoy all that free music with our thanks, and please keep tuned to IVM over the next month as we bring you more reviews, interviews and of course our staff picks of the best releases of 2015.
That's all to come this month on Intravenous Magazine.
