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.

Thee Hypnotics - Come Down Heavy

Thee Hypnotics were a UK outfit in the early 90s who played some great hard rock similar to 60s groups like Blue Cheer, Free, MC5 and The Stooges. They had a couple of great albums out before an accident during their US toured forced them to take a long break. They released an album after regrouping, on a new label, but nothing as good as their earlier releases. Come Down Heavy is a great album full of sonic guitar riffs, outstanding drum work and howling, rebellious vocals.

I haven't heard of them, but if they sound anything like Blue Cheer or the MC5 then I'm sure I'll enjoy it. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the post!

I was desperately seeking for the record for a long time as I only have a very bad recording on tape which is not worth ripping.

So, thanx again!
