Arsis' latest slab of Carcass worship arrived a little while back when the new face of the underground, Scion A/V released their Lepers Caress EP and in typical Scion A/V fashion, the mini-album is available as a free download here. So stop everything you're doing and take a sec to embrace the age we live in and gain ownership of someone's intellectual property without having to pay one red cent.

I don't mean that as a knock on Scion by any stretch of the imagination as I appreciate everything they do for the metal underground. In fact, I would much rather someone with the taste and know-how of a record label (while far from perfect) help me navigate the seemingly endless sea of bands to put on the airwaves.

I'm just having a hard time embracing the fact that such talented individuals don't get to enjoy the fruits of their labor these days.
