Deathwish Inc, undoubtedly one of our favourite labels and a must follow for all fans of hardcore and it’s many offshoots, have released a free sampler called A Summer Of Blood. Twenty tracks to while away the lazy summer days too, or, alternatively, to two-step mosh, and spin kick your mates in their faces too.
Deathwish Inc., for those who don’t know, is the independent record label run by Jacob Bannon of Converge and Tre Mccarthy. It’s been around for a while now, nearly 15 years in fact. As of 2014, Deathwish Inc’s discography ran to over 160 releases, ten of which were by Converge themselves.
This 20 song sampler features tracks from lots of our favourite bands including Converge themselves, Code Orange (nee Code Orange Kids), Oathbreaker, Self Defense Family, Touche Amore, Deafheaven, Bossk and many more.
