Relapse Records may just be the pioneers of the underground heavy music scene, and the latest double disc compilation CD the Philadelphia based label has just released is proof. Covering the spectrum of what's under the radar, Relapse has grown from its humble beginnings to a major force in the music industry, thanks to some risky investments and giving the gauntlet to bands that matter, circumventing the industry norms and above all, letting the music do the talking. And there's a lot of talking to be done which stems from this over 40-track release, as everyone from Alabama Thunderpussy to Uphill Battle is featured on this commemorative offering. As a starter sample, or just to add to an already intense collection, get contaminated and pick up the best Relapse has to offer.
