Look, metal rules, okay? Yeah, some of it is dumb, some of it is lame, but a lot of it kicks major ass. Even hipster turds keep a couple of metal bands in their back pocket for when some sad bastard band like Belle and Sebastian just ain’t feelin’ right.
This week, ThinkIndie is launching a new metal sale program, which will give you great deals on great new metal bands on a regular basis. First up is psych-metal stalwarts Zoroaster‘s sophomore album Matador for the great devilish price of $6.66. And it has great metal song titles like “Ancient Ones,” “Old World,” “Odyssey II,” and our personal favorite, “Trident” (and no, they’re not talking gum here; an actual freaking three-pronged, evil-doin’ trident).
Want to hear it first? Listen to a full album stream HERE. Want to thank us? Simply throw your devil horns in the air. We’ll feel them no matter where you are.

• LABEL SPOTLIGHT: PARK THE VAN
Started in 2004 and formed on the idea of liking a band, Park the Van represents everything good about the music business. By loving what they release, and having a clear vision and style, it made it easy for music fans and record store clerks to talk up this new label.
Park the Van has a new series of releases from bands they think need your attention. The series is called Delicacies, and we have a few choice titles on sale, including early Dr. Dog albums. We have also added some of their classic label catalog to fill out the page. Dig in; it’s delicious.
• JOHN NOLAN EXCLUSIVE!
John Nolan is the guitarist/co-vocalist of Taking Back Sunday and the lead singer/guitarist of Straylight Run. On Thursday, June 17, 2010, John stopped by Looney Tunes in West Babylon, N.Y.
