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.
The soundtrack that started it all, for me at least. This is the album that, when I was twelve years old, introduced me to underground music. This soundtrack served as a sort of jump off point for me and I began purchasing albums by each of the artists included here. Chock full of awesomeness galore, this is definitely one of the best soundtracks ever put out there. It includes The Cramps, Flesheaters, TSOL, Roky Erickson, The Damned and even more! Plus they are all doing original songs written for the movie (with the exception of Roky's "Burn The Flames"). >Return of the Living Dead was an almost instant cult classic for its blend of humor and gore in homage to the greatest of zombie films, >Night of the Living Dead. If you haven't seen it then now would be a great time! The version of the soundtrack that I've uploaded for your listening pleasure is a special treat for Halloween. This is the rare version featuring dialogue from the film in between tracks and the original score music. To my knowledge, it was only released on the picture disc, which I am lucky enough to own, though I found this out there on the interwebs. The whole record is great but my personal faves are The Cramps "Surfin' Dead", 45 Grave's special "zombie version" of "Partytime", and The Damned's "Dead Beat Dance". All of these are unavailable elsewhere and are great tunes from some of the greatest bands of the era. So get your pointy little witch shoes on and prepare to shake what your monster gave ya!
