From what Amazon is telling me, March Is Metal, so all month long they’re having sales on all things metal – sounds good to me!
Today, they are offering up the MP3 version of the classic Judas Priest tune Living After Midnight for only $.69. Although the song was originally released on 1980’s British Steel, the MP3 version offered today is taken from the best-of compilation The Chosen Few, priced at $10.99 for 17 songs that are all, wait, let me double check the track listing… yeah, pretty much awesome.
Though it’s strange to talk about metal bands having hits, “Living After Midnight” definitely qualifies as one for Judas Priest and is basically a gateway song to their extensive music catalog. Plus, if you’re first learning how to play guitar or bass, “Living After Midnight” is one of the first songs you’ll be able to master, along with Deep Purple’s “Smoke On The Water” and Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid.” So, if you’re not already a Priest fan, definitely get in on this $.69 MP3 song deal, and don’t be afraid to grab the entire The Chosen Few album right now at its current low price.
Long live the Priest!
Also, as part of Amazon’s ode to metal, you can get the MP3 album March is Metal Month – 2012 Sampler for FREE right now. Yes, FREE, that means, you don’t pay for it. You. Can. Haz. FREE. The sample has 18 songs from bands like Ice Earth, Corrosion Of Conformity, In Flames, Five Finger Death Punch, Lacuna Coil, and more. So go on and get your freebie!
Head’s up: Since March Is Metal and so am I (metal, that is, not March), you can expect to see a lot more posts this month from me and my fellow mercenary metallions here at Geeks of Doom spotlighting some more deals on metal albums and songs.
