Label Earache Records has cut a deal to make the new album by thrash metal band Gama Bomb available through the site on 5 November, three months before the release of a CD version with extra tracks. “The idea is for the greater good, to give fans a taste of Gama Bomb for free, legally,” says Earache MD Digby Pearson. “Actually, the cost saving of distribution through the internet is a big incentive for us. Piracy is not a problem, because if a fan passes on the download link it can also be seen as free promotion for the band.”
