Indie Vision Music has compiled a new digital sampler of artists that we have recently reviewed and from our “Check Out” posts. We hope that this will be the best and heaviest digital sampler we have released to date. Please let us know what bands you like, and please go support these bands and labels by buying their music, buying merch, going to their shows, and telling your friends. We would like to thank all the bands and labels for letting us use their music.

  19. TommyJ says:

  20. justin says:

    Messengers has potential. I hope they tour soon


  21. Brandon says:

    I downloaded part 1 here at work and I didn’t have any trouble. Let us know if any of you are experiencing problems downloading the file(s).


  22. that parallels song player isn’t parallels


  23. Eric says:

    Downloaded it and listened through once. Phinehas was a killer first track. Really powerful, awesome song. The one from Messengers kept the energy going, and I’m loving that track too. Close Your Eyes also sound good. I started doing work and didn’t pay close attention to most of it after that, but I’m sure I’ll grow more aware of what I like and don’t like along the way over the next few weeks.


  24. Trent says:

    Gnashing of Teeth – Separate

    Wow! That Messengers song blew me away!


  29. Yay!!!! :D I loved sample 1 I’m sure this will rock


  30. all christian right? J/W :P


  31. Caleb says:

    for some reason song #9 doesn’t work. it says it is in m4e non mp3.


  32. Caleb says:

    not m4e it was m4a does anyone know how I can fix this


    • Steve says:

      That is the file format that label gave me. What media player are you using to play it? You may have to try and use a program to convert it to mp3 if your media player doesn’t support m4a. We tried to get all mp3 but I believe there are 2 m4a tracks on the compilation.

  33. Caleb says:

    Oh, okay windows media player doesn’t support m4a. Thanks for the help.


  34. Chris says:

    Yeah, I dare all of you to download this and listen to the Gnashing of Teeth, Clear Convictions, Creations and Messengers songs. THEY WILL PUMP YOU UP.


  35. This is sick compilation.
    I cannot stop listening to it!!!
    Thank you to all who were a part of this!


  36. Taylor L. says:

    That song by Not One Is Upright is pretty flippin slammin! Really liking what they’re doing.


  37. Nater says:

    Called to Arms has my vote on this comp.

    ForChristSake has some cool moments but they should really stop the clean vocals and repetition.


  38. taras91 says:

    Guys Check This Out.



  39. Steve says:

    Anyone have anything else to say about this compilation good or bad?


  40. Jakedude says:

    I love that there’s 2 South Carolina locals, Hundredth and Divide The Sea, on here :D


  41. Juan says:
