“When was the last time you heard a compilation with some of these names?” states The Bearded Dragon Productions founder Mason Beard. Back in the day, there were several heavy bands that influenced a lot of different crowds. The compilation features the genres of hardcore, early-metalcore (aka the good stuff), thrash metal, death metal, grindcore, groove metal, technical metal, black metal and even some rapcore.
“We’ve got all of it. The only genre I think isn’t on this compilation is like power-violence or viking metal or something like that. If you like heavy compilations and a variety of styles to choose from, this one is for you.”
The compilation is dedicated to Damien Percy, the former drummer of Terraphobia and Mortification, who passed away on February 7, 2018. May this remain here on Earth, while he celebrates his new life in Heaven.
