Heavy Metal Music Association of Canada – Canuck Metal Vol. 2 (01 July 2012, LoudTrax)
The H.M.M.A.C. recently announced the release of their second collection of Canadian metal music (actually, it was about two weeks ago — the official release was on Canada Day)!
If you missed out on the first volume from back in October, it’s no longer free, but you can still grab a copy for really cheap right here from LoudTrax.
Spanning a variety of hard rock and heavy metal as wide as the Canadian countryside itself, Canuck Metal Vol.2 includes an hour’s worth of songs from a bunch of bands that might be familiar to you, and some that might not be but should be!
1. Arapacis – “End of the Line”
2. Crisis Kings – “Glutton”
3. Forbidden Sin – “Man Down”
4. Hollow – “Sunriser”
5. Hymnosis – “How Dare You”
6. Makaria – “Spire”
7. Nephelium – “Merciless Annihilation”
(If this song sounds familiar to you, it might be because these Dubai ex-pats previously released it as a free download, which we discussed back in January.)
8. Project Mars – “Don’t Hold Back”
(This song also might sound familiar to you, since it also was previously released for download, as I mentioned a few weeks ago.)
9. Sanktuary – “Raise the Flag”
10. The New Jacobin Club – “My Smile”
11. The Void – “If We Can’t Beat ‘Em (Detour ‘Em!)”
12. Trainwreck Architect – “Dream Pariah”
13. Tribune – “The Succubus”
(Another song that you may have heard before — the album it comes from, Elder Lore/The Dark Arts, was reviewed here, and that post also told how to download this single for free.
Furthermore, in this more recent post, I shared the “Succubus” video as well as telling you about another free track you could download from this album!)
14. Wolven Ancestry – “The Animistic Awakening”
Grab your free copy of this compilation from LoudTrax here — note that it does require a promo code to activate the download, but that code is conveniently provided immediately above the download link!
