Metal Sunday is back with a vengeance! News, reviews and much, much more…

Lets start with an oldie, but goodie – Metal Swim –  digital compilation which came out on Adult Swim last year.

It collects 16 tracks by the likes Death Angel, Skeletonwitch, Black Cobra, Isis, Kylesa and Boris.

Needless to say, if your knowledge of modern metal scene is limited, this is the place where you should start (and even if you know your modern metal, you should still check it out). Grab the comp here.
