Because of this, I will be taking down the download links from here. But these titles are still free on that site. Here is the press release:

Moshpit Tragedy Begins Pay-What-You-Want Partnership With Inimical Records
Canada's Moshpit Tragedy Records - the first label to abandon physical releases in favour of a full 'pay-what-you-want' download model - have announced a partnership with Seattle's Inimical Records.
The deal sees 16 titles from Inimical's back catalog available for sliding-scale download in their own section of the MTR website where visitors can download their out of print and vinyl only releases starting at nothing. Releases that are still currently available on CD are available beginning at $3 via paypal and future new releases will also begin at that price and remain there for 3 months before reverting back to a $0-10 sliding scale.
Inimical Records founder Mike Crow comments: "Inimical Records is proud to announce a partnership with Moshpit Tragedy Records to make our catalog available in mp3 format. They have a productive solution to the balancing act of digital distribution in our small corner of the musical world, DIY punk and metal, from the sliding scale to the inclusion of the artwork. I especially appreciate that MTR makes the artwork available in a printable form, so you are receiving a finished product and not an mp3 with no information. Punk and hardcore is so intertwined with politics and ideas, it is a shame to see people just rabidly collecting data without digesting the full product. I am very excited to partner with MTR and hope good things come of it."
Based out of Seattle, Inimical Records was born in the summer of 2003 with the release of SOD HAULER "S/T" EP and from there snowballed with releases from successful punk and metal bands like PREYING HANDS, SKARP, COP ON FIRE, OROKU, BALLAST, JESUS FUCKING CHRIST, SAHN MARU, ALDEBARAN, SOD HAULER, WHOREHOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, SPRING BREAK, ZOMBIE RITUAL, SPLATTERHOUSE, GRUESOME STUFF RELISH, SLIGHTLY LESS THAN NOTHING and PROCESSION OF VULTURES.
Moshpit Tragedy founder Rayny Forster comments: "I am a big fan of all the music on the Inimical label and so I'm obviously very excited about this collaberation. It also marks our first of what I hope to be many label partnerships - though I must admit I'm picky about what we associate MTR with, Inimical definitely makes that cut."
