It seems like Tooth & Nail always does this. They release a big ol sampler through another company, and then say to themselves “ya know, we should just do another one……by ourselves”.

Well thats what they have done, and this time around they have included a whole bunch of music that hasn’t even been released from all three of their departments (BEC Recordings, Tooth & Nail Records, and Solid State Records are all the same company). If you already downloaded the other sampler I put up, well good, you should have. there are a few repeat tracks on this one, but for the most part you will get a whole bunch of new music here. Enjoy!
