The catalog-spanning collection of music features tracks from essentials artists like Death, Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, High On Fire, Exhumed, Gatecreeper, Full of Hell, Mortician, Primitive Man, Revocation, and so many more.

To punctuate their 30th anniversary as one of extreme music's most consistent cultural contributors, Relapse Records is doing something especially cool to celebrate.

The label has curated a collection of 241-catalog-spanning tracks to complete a truly definitive record label sampler and they are giving it away for free. The incredibly diverse offering of tracks features both current label artists as well as distinguished greats that have solidified Relapse as such a respected name in the genre.

In a statement regarding the release of the sampler the label issued the following.

"2020 not only marked a year of challenges and change for us all, but it also marked the label's 30th anniversary. With this in mind, we'd like to invite you to check out the Relapse Records 30th Anniversary Sampler!

The sampler features over 200 songs highlighting the massive, diverse Relapse roster. From legendary Death Metal institutions such as Obituary, Death, Suffocation, and more, to the groundbreaking discordant sounds of Repulsion, Pig Destroyer, and Nasum, this sampler features some of the most brutal and pulverizing metal in our catalog.

Bands such as Yob, Neurosis, and Primitive Man bring their doom to crushing effect, and with an eye towards the future, the critically acclaimed Nothing, Torche, Inter Arma and more, showcase the unique, varied history of the label."
