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.
At midnight tonight "Digital Meltd0wn's Nightmare Before Christmas" will begin. While many bloggers will be spreading the holiday cheer by sharing Christmas-themed albums, we here at Digital Meltd0wn have decided to say: Bah! Humbug! For those who haven't been following the blog, basically we plan to take the exact opposite course of those bloggers by sharing a plethora of horrifying and blasphemous items. For those of you who are familiar with the Halloween Countdown event, the concept is very similar. We will attempt to post at least one horror-related item each day during the month of December until Christmas arrives.
In addition to the regular contributors here at DM, we will be joined by a couple of special guest bloggers. Strange Ranger from the Motherfucker=Redeemer blog and Phelpster from the Manchester Morgue blog will be our special guests of honor, and I'm sure you will be delighted horrified by the material they intend to share. I would like to thank them for being generous enough to devote their time to this project. Please make them feel welcome here. We may also have a few more guest bloggers join us as late arrivals during the weeks to come.
I won't reveal what my fellow contributors intend to share, but I wanted to give you an idea of some of the items that I personally intend to post. The majority of my posts will most likely consist of out of print soundtracks to horror films. As requested, I plan to continue where I left off with the "Main Titles From Unreleased Horror Scores" series. I also plan to share more horror comic/magazine scans. Warren's "Famous Monsters of Filmland" will definitely make an appearance. I will leave it up to the readers to decide, but I will either continue where I left off with the "Creepy" and "Eerie" series, or share the complete run of EC's "The Vault of Horror" and "The Haunt of Fear". Lovecraft fans can expect to see various items devoted to the master.
It's almost midnight now, so without further ado, let Digital Meltd0wn's Nightmare Before Christmas begin...
