Century Media Records has announced details regarding the Marine Corps sampler, tentatively titled "Code Red," that they will be distributing this spring/summer. 20,000 copies will be handed out to U.S. troops leaving for active duty in the Middle East. According to Major Stephen A. Cox, Director of Community Relations for the United States Marine Corps, "Intensity of spirit is precisely what makes the Century Family sampler appealing to many Marines. The donation of samplers to the Marines and their families is patriotic and a generous gesture appreciated by Marines serving their country around the world." Here's the tracklisting for the sampler:

1. Shadows Fall - What Drives the Weak
2. Arch Enemy - We Will Rise
3. God Forbid – Soul Engraved
4. Dark Tranquillity – Lost To Apathy

should've sent them some metallica so lars could complain again.

Maybe the Marines could use the CDs as armor.

Most samplers are given out for free anyway to give more exposure to the label's bands and thus increase sales. What a "generous" donation.

Arn't most marines just a bunch of hillbillies? I would think that a lot of them would hate these bands.

hey now, a lot of good dudes are in the marines, hon hon from into the moat for instance...I think this is a rad thing for century media to do

Good intent, bad music. And most samplers are sold for a buck or two.
