It looks like bands and labels send music in and Bastard Records picks one track (more if they like them) and makes a mix CD. This one has forty-three tracks, and I’d only heard a couple of the bands before. It starts off with the label-sent tracks, which were mostly thrash/grind/hardcore. The individual band tracks were a bit more of a grab bag. Overall, a great comp to introduce you to a large chunk of what might be slipping by your radar. Oh, and it’s only three bucks, and they also accept trades. I’ll look for future releases.
