Relapse Records: 25 Years of Contamination [FREE] Relapse Sampler

Unholy metal slab Batman! Relapse Records is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a ton of events, including a free digital compilation release of over 180 tracks from their roster! 180+ TRACKS! In addition, Relapse will be reissuing a significant amount of titles from throughout the label's history on deluxe vinyl. 

Albums from artists like Mastodon, Nile, Dillinger Escape Plan, Neurosis, Amorphis, Incantation, Human Remains, and many many more will get the deluxe reissue treatment after being long out-of-print or never-before-available on wax. Plus, a special, super limited silver colored vinyl of every record released/reissued in 2015 will be made available exclusively from www.relapse.com.  That's way more vinyl that you can shake a stick at!

Relapse will be publicly celebrating its silver anniversary at next year's Maryland Death Fest alongside current and former Relapse artists Amorphis (playing Tales From The Thousand Lakes in its entirety), Obituary, Neurosis, Suffocation, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Cephalic Carnage, Primitive Man, YOB, Tombs, Devourment, Origin, Skinless, Inverloch, Inter Arma, Serpentine Path, and Noisear.

Relapse Records was founded by Matthew Jacobson in 1990, and the label quickly became one of the most celebrated and influential underground labels in heavy music history. Here’s what founder Matt Jacobson had to say about the occasion:

"In 1990 I started Relapse as a teenager in my parents’ basement. It was a dream with a simple mission: to share the music that I was so passionate about with as many people as possible. Over the course of 25 years we have had the honor of working with a diverse array of amazing artists and releasing a vast catalog of incredible records that includes numerous influential and genre defining albums. We are very proud that we have been able to bring the music that we love to a global audience."
