The Pennsylvania label are marking their 25th anniversary with a sampler that features tracks from The Dillinger Escape Plan and Mastodon, and is available as a name-your-price download

Relapse Records Sampler

If you're a big fan of metal and waiting for long downloads to finish, then your day just got a hell of a lot better. In celebration of a quarter century bringing all manner of 'cores' to the masses, Relapse Records have released a gigantic sampler, pleasingly entitled '25 Years of Contamination', with a track from nearly every artist they've ever dealt with. That includes Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Baroness, Neurosis, Incantation, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Necrophagist and Suffocation, to name around 4% of the haul.

If you want to get your mitts on the FLACs and have a similar download speed to that of tQ's offices, you'll be looking at a good two hours of waiting. Thankfully, you can start listening RIGHT NOW via this Bandcamp link or the player down below. Hurrah for the modern world.
