Heavy Metal Black Friday 2015 Deals Revealed

It’s almost Black Friday again (which for many stores has essentially just become “Black Month” as the sales start earlier and employees are expected to work all Thanksgiving) and you might not think that matters to metalheads, but many of the labels actually jump on that bandwagon.

Best of all – you don’t have to go to a store at four in the morning to get these deals.

The holiday / Thanksgiving / Christmas sales are already ramping up through the various online distros, so if you’re looking for new music on a budget, these heavy metal Black Friday deals will help you find new tunes.

This is just the start though, so check back in each day as we add in more deals. Specifically look for Amazon to launch something big soon, as that online juggernaut usually does $5 albums that rotate out each day. If you know of any metal sales that aren’t listed below, be sure to leave a comment and we’ll get it added.

The Omega Order is offering 25% off a large selection of death metal, gore grind, and grindcore discs this week.

Comatose Music has an ongoing sale where you get a free CD of $10 or less if you buy three CDs totaling $30 – the deal stacks too, so you can get two free CDs at $60 and three free CDs at $90.

Sevared Records has a sale going all week in celebration of Black Friday where orders are 20% off with coupon code “BLACKFRIDAY.” Your order will also include a free 21 track compilation.

The Earache Christmas sale has already begun and features big discounts on CDs, vinyl, t-shirts, and band patches covering a wide range of bands from At The Gates to Woods Of Ypres.

Rather than offering a discount on the music itself, Divebomb Records is discounting the shipping, offering 1 cent shipping and handling if you buy any combination of at least six CDs.

For you Rob Zombie fanatics, the director/musician is offering 20% off anything on his online store with the coupon code “EARLY20.”

Starting Wednesday, November 25 at 9PM, all items (excluding pre-orders) at the Relapse web store are 25% off until Sunday, Nov 29 at 11:59pm EST.
