Welcome

elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.

Miscellaneous Blog News and other Random Ramblings



Thank You Everyone
I wanted to take a break from posting albums to say thank you to all of you who have visited this blog, and especially those of you who have taken the time to show your appreciation. It's nice to know that there are other people out there with a deeper appreciation for music, who's taste extends beyond that of bands such as Nickelback and Staind.

This blog has already exceeded my expectations. There have been over 600 downloads since I started this blog six days ago. I've also had a few people contact me about linking to this blog. It's a nice feeling to know that this blog already has a small following. The comments I have received so far have been much appreciated, and are very encouraging. I hope that the albums I post in the future are met with such enthusiasm. If you like this blog and download anything from it please take the time to leave a comment sometime. I do this because I love music and want to introduce people to music that I feel deserves more recognition, and the only thing that I ask in return is for you to leave a comment. It is a lot more encouraging to see actual people respond and show their appreciation, rather than to just look at download statistics. A few more things and I'll shut up and get back to posting albums...

My Contact Info Added
I have updated my profile to include information so that you can contact me. Please contact me if you would like to request music for me to post, recommend me music, or would just like to discuss the duality of man.

Digital Meltd0wn last.fm Group
The Digital Meltd0wn last.fm Group (link is in the sidebar and in my first post) has six members now. We need 9 more members in order for last.fm to generate charts based on the group's listening habits. If you're a member of last.fm and would like to join the group, I would be very greatful.

Gigasize
I hope that you all have found the host (gigasize) that I've been using to be satisfactory. I think the download speeds are fairly good in comparison to other such hosts. My goal is to eventually be able to get a lifetime premium account, which requires 500,000 points (1 point per download). If I'm able to do that then the download links to the albums I post would never expire. Please feel free to share the content I post on other sites, blogs, or forums. That would help me with my mission to get a premium account. If you want to link back to the blog I would appreciate it, but it's not absolutely necessary.

Two Albums Re-Added
There were two entries for albums that I accidently saved as drafts instead of publishing them, which weren't showing up on the index. Those entries were Fugazi's 13 Songs and the Ramone's Rocket to Russia, which both come highly recommended, so don't forget to check those out.

Roll Call - Please Respond
I would like to do a roll call to get an idea of how many people are visiting this blog. So if you're reading this please just leave a comment. You don't have to write anything too long unless you just want to.

Till Next Time...
Once again I would just like to say thanks to everyone. Don't forget to leave a comment sometime if you like the job I'm doing so far. Till next time...

Thank you very much my friend. And thank you for being the only one to respond to the roll call. I know that there are a lot more visitors than just you, but I guess you're the only one who took the time to read this post :\

Great stuff here. Thanks! Downloading Gun Club now ...

Maybe you could post music by the Minutemen, Meat Puppets & Husker Du, three of my favorites from the 80s. And how about Naked Raygun, especially Throb Throb -- I loved that album, but my cassette died and I never replaced it ... now I can't find it anywhere.

Liking this a lot. Big Black is always a good way to start. If you're taking suggestions, mine would be for more industrial music, but you have a nice selection here so that is just for if you're in the mood.

Zer0_II said...

To anonymous.. I'm uploading Arcade Zen by Husker Du right now. I have a few minutemen albums I can post also. I'm not familiar with Naked Raygun, but I'll see what I can do about finding that album. I have several good sources for finding hard to find albums, so hopefully it won't be too much trouble.

Dan.. To be honest I don't listen to a lot of industrial music, but I'm open to anything new. Do you have any suggestions?
