GENRE: Various Genres
LABEL: Relapse Records




Relapse Records' ongoing sampler series, Contaminated, arrives at its sixth edition with yet another double-CD, packed full with a positively exhausting 39 tracks. But perhaps even better than the talent represented here -- culled from the crème de la crème of the label's impressive roster -- is the amusing decision to list it as catalog number 6666 -- nice touch, fellas! Silly though this observation might seem, it corresponds nicely with Relapse's resilient and ongoing pursuit of extreme metal's ever-expanding outer fringes. Contaminated 6.0 is easily the most varied of the series, bringing together acknowledged death and grindcore heavyweights (Nile, Mastodon, the Dillinger Escape Plan, Today Is the Day, Suffocation, etc.), numerous examples of doom/stoner rock (Pentagram, High on Fire, Alabama Thunder Pussy), classic and post-hardcore acts (Cryptic Slaughter, Burnt by the Sun, Disfear), progressive metal (Neurosis, Alchemist), and even the indie-approved noise rock of Unsane and Harvey Milk. In short, Contaminated 6.0 is what every sampler should aspire to be: a marketing tool, yes, but one that acts as both an excellent window to discovery
