Thrones, Kings, Minos & Rhinos (A Real Gone Sampler)

An important and popular fixture on the Real Gone calendar, the free sampler has offered a broad range of tracks for keen-eared listeners since its inception back in 2010. Usually, the samplers would cover a broad range of music. This year, in line with 2014, we’ve covered so much metal, it needed it’s own free download!

While we’ve always championed variety and diversity, it seemed only fair not to mix death and extreme metal numbers with country, singer-songwriters and acoustic flashiness (all of which can be found on our other sampler for 2016), since that didn’t seem to do any parties any real favours…and so, for our loyal and metal oriented readers and listeners, this time around, we offer a real treat. ‘Thrones, Kings, Minos & Rhinos’ offers the better part of an hour’s worth of thrash, doom, death and more besides!
