EMI Music Label Services/Caroline Distribution is celebrating its fourth year of bringing metal to the masses with the March Is Metal Month (MIMM) retail campaign which kicks off in physical and digital music stores around the country on March 1.

The campaign – a collaboration between retailers, record companies and digital partners – promises to be bigger than ever with unique merchandise including a CD sampler, posters, a T-shirt featuring the art of Rich Hall, and competitions to win signed instruments, albums and gig tickets.

March is Metal Month continues the tradition of working with the best rock labels to showcase top tracks from their roster of talent.   This year’s sampler includes the tracks ‘Undaunted’ from Adrenaline Mob’s upcoming album ‘Omerta’; Swedish extreme metal band Meshuggah’s ‘The Demon’s Name is Silence’ and Five Finger Death Punch have added their previously digital-only release ‘The Tragic Truth’. Fans of Southern hardcore metal band Corrosion Of Conformity are in for a treat with their track ‘The Money Changers’ also included – their first release in 25 years.
