Soldier Front – a free full game download for hardcore gamers

Soldier Front is a 3D first person shooter game with very realistic game play and graphics. A unique feature among FPS free games is character growth, where the player can save their statistics and rise throught the military ranks just as a real soldier. The game also allows you to choose which task force you want to belong to (SAS, SEAL, UDT or Delta Force). Each setting comes with different weapons, statistics of recoil and rate of fire.

Advance Patrol’s newest album “El Futuro” on The Pirate Bay’s homepage

We were really happy to discover this morning that the PirateBay is promoting Advance Patrol's newest album on their homepage. This will definitely help the band get some awesome exposure and potentially thousands of new fans across the world (they are already among the top 100 downloads in the audio category with almost 1000 seeds!). The promotion is also an effort to publicly discredit the prosecution against The Pirate Bay - where it seems like the Advance Patrol was unknowingly listed as a plaintiff - and show the world that file sharing can be legal & beneficial to the artists. It also just so happens that "El Futuro" is an awesome Latin hip-hop album - it will get your body moving right away! Download away - free and LEGAL from The Pirate Bay.

Bam Bam: Bam Bam

The self-titled 26 minute EP by Bam Bam is a bit of a thrill to listen to. It sounds like they went into the studio with every trick they had and spared nothing. While Brian Wilson need not worry about losing his throne, this collection of power pop ditties turns how to be immensely creative and listenable. The lyrics are in Spanish yet it is not a problem since it is the infectious spirit and likability of this band that carry the session. Oro Flash is the highlight of the set with its slightly psychedelic leanings mixed with enthusiastic vocals but I also enjoyed the Animal Collective sounding Hi-Q and the lively Sin Las Patas Traseras. No, its not Pet Sounds (what is?) but its Bam Bam and thats good enough for a party.

Legacy: Lagacy

We have a star on the rise for you here! Danny "Legacy" Mcbride is a very talented New York artist with a broad musical range. His sound is a fusion of R&B, Pop, Jazz, sometimes even Gospel & Rock. He's been producing local artists since he was twelve years old, learned how to play piano at age five and sang ever since he could speak. He has written or co-written all of the songs on this self-titled album and spent countless hours of recording and producing to bring it to perfection. Some of the songs feature two of his good friends and studio partners - Critical and G-dub.

HiFi Hustlers: Blagging It

This EP is a great chilled out mixture of 70s dance, funk with a touch of reggae and dub. Just listening to the first beats makes your feet move. We couldn't find much about the creators, but the EP has been mastered by Stuart Robertson, a songwriter, pianist and producer. The beautiful cover was designed and executed by RandyPan, an art director, graphic designer and a photographer with an alter-ego of Doward Williams.

Royal Baronial Theatre: Here. My Explosion…

Released under Creative Commons license, the film can be freely downloaded & shared with others - as a matter of fact, the film creators encourage it! The films soundtrack is also available as a free download (under CC license of course). Written, directed, shot and edited almost entirely by Reid Gershbein in just two weeks, "Here. My Explosion..." is a great example of what a talented filmmaker can do nowadays with little to no money.

Just Plain Ant: Dig Deep

Dig Deep is a refreshing answer to those dwindling ignorant people that still believe free independent music is inferior to the corporate variety of pop music. Just Plain Ant is an excellent producer of lush and groovin hip-hop by any standards. This new free and legal online album is from BlocSonic which is best known for their compilation series of net label music titled NetBloc. This is their first foray into a single artist album and they did Just Plain Ant proudor is it the other way around? The Richmond, Virginia based artist is at his best and he surrounds himself with equally talented rappers like Jay Slim, Sleaze, and Brad Oblivion.
