I might be off a bit, but I remember discovering a bunch of bands through the first few Victory Style compilations (Guilt, Bloodlet, Doughnuts, etc.) way back when, same thing with Definitely Not the Majors (Where I first heard Catharsis and Starkweather); so, I always kind of measure compilations up against those.
Well, leave it to Deathwish Inc to bring those memories flooding back by introducing new bands and dropping a whopper full of teaser tracks and videos of their and Deep Six Records recent and upcoming releases. This from Deathwish themselves:
Deathwish/Malfunction along with Six Feet Under Records are proud to present "MMX", our most ambitious and eclectic FREE Digital sampler to date.
