Free Compilation Downloads from Hynpotic Dirge and Meteor City

Pardon me for combining these two compilations into one post, but my time is limited and I wanted everyone to be aware of these.
First, a MASSIVE compilation is available for free download from Hypnotic Dirge Records, one of the finest labels for dark music of various sorts (notably, ambient and metal). This features audio, video and text files, which explains the rather considerable size of the download. It is their second annual compilation download, and we can only hope that this continues to be an annual project, because both are great. Get the latest one here.
