Ask a random selection of UK metal fans aged mid-20s and up which band they thought should have been massive at the turn of the century, and there’s a fair chance that Earthtone9 will be the answer you get. The Nottingham six-piece had a blend of accessible melody, progressive tendencies and sheet-metal fury that was rare at the time, and still proves hard to find now. Splitting in 2002, the band announced in 2010 that they’d be reforming to play a few shows…and then we even got a new EP a few months later…and now 11 years almost to the day since the release of their last EP, (finally!) a new Earthtone9 album has arrived.

Go download Earthtone9’s free compilation. NOW.

Yeah yeah yeah, we’ve been rabbiting on about earthtone9 getting back together a lot recently. Well, what do you expect, given that we were the one’s who confirmed the rumours were true and the band was playing together again?

Anyway, the band have brought forward the release of the free-to-download compilation album, Inside, Embers Glow…, and you can get your grubby mitts on it right damn now. If you head on over to, all you have to do is hand over your email address and BANG – you’ll be sent a link to download the whole thing for nowt.

Of course, we’d also recommend shelling out the ludicriously cheap asking price of £5.99 for the limited-run digipak version of the album. It might encourage the band to, y’know, maybe record something new?
