Cyber Monday Music Deals

Cyber Monday has been known by consumers as the Internet equivalent of Black Friday and is quite popular to those looking for deals who wish to avoid the crazy lines, potential screwdriver stabbings and sleep deprivation that comes with Black Friday shopping. What isn't well known is the fact that many artists and record labels often take advantage of this day as well, offering huge discounts and deals on their catalogs. In celebration of the laziness and convenience that is Internet shopping Idol Threat has compiled a short list of music-related deals for you, so make sure you jump on one or all of them before the days end!

Former Chicago based label Seventh Rule Recordings is offering what is arguably the best deal this Cyber Monday. Seventh Rule has put SIXTEEN of their releases up on their bandcamp for FREE download! That's right, 16 of some of the best hardcore/metal albums out now all for FREE! You can download albums from Atriarch, Batillus, Wetnurse, Chicago favorites Indian, Millions, Sweet Cobra and more! This deal has been going on all weekend but it will only be extended until the end of the day so you'll have to hurry:

Wu-Tang Clan fans can now download 3 of their latest releases for the low, low price of $7 each! You can choose from their popular Beatles mash-up album Enter the Magical Mystery Chambers, their new Jimi Hendrix mixtape Black Gold or their Enter the Dubstep album.

Relapse Records, one of the best labels in extreme metal, is commemorating their 21st anniversary by offering a huge sale to celebrate! While not necessarily Cyber Monday related this is still an amazing deal that will end in a couple of days at the end of the month. All Relapse cds (excluding 2011 releases) are now HALF OFF and each day they offer a different cd that you can add to an existing order for a mere 21 CENTS! Today's special cd is Cephalic Carnage's "Xenosapien."

Decibel Magazine is without a doubt the best metal publication still in print, but you can see for yourself by subscribing to them now for $29.95 for a full year or save 10 bucks by subscribing to two years for $49.95! Thats 24 brootal issues for a mere 2 bucks a pop! As a bonus Cyber Monday deal you get an extra FREE issue for subscribing!

Legendary Hip Hop duo Black Star is offering their single “You Already Knew” for FREE DOWNLOAD! It was produced by Oh No and is off their upcoming Aretha Franklin inspired mixtape, Black Star Aretha. Talib Kweli and Mos Def/Yasiin Bey also released their Madlib-produced single "Fix Up" for free in celebration of "Black Star Friday." Download "You Already Knew" here / Download "Fix Up" here

Fake Four Inc is an experimental Hip Hop label with a diverse roster of artists that include Astronautalis, Sole, Myka 9 and Onry Ozzborn of Grayskul. Today is the last day of their fall sale where you buy one of five 3-pack CDs for only $10! Each of the "Fake Four Fall Survival Kits" is compiled by various themes but my personal favorite is the "Producer" pack which includes a Blue Sky Black Death album and K-The-I's amazing album Synesthesia.

Troniks/PACrec have been one of the best noise lables/distro for quite some time now and are currently selling five cds for only $20! While again not Cyber Monday related this is still a great deal that saves you more than 50% off their normal prices! Actually this is an ongoing deal for the site but thats no excuse not to take advantage of it today! Get into the spirit of the consumer holiday!
