Don't know if there is already a thread about that.
I would like to know what are your favorites Metal Compilations ?
I don't know that much but here are some that I like :
METAL MASSACRE I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII (feat. too many bands)
RAGING DEATH (feat. R.A.V.A.G.E., Xecutioner, Sadus, etc.)
SPEED KILLS Vol. I, II, III (Full of classics)
MASTERS OF BRUTALITY (feat. Morbid Angel, Death, Dismember, Massacre, Carcass...)
NORDIC METAL - A Tribute To Euronymous (feat. Mayhem, Dissection, Thorns, Marduk, Emperor...)
SCANDINAVIAN METAL ATTACK (famous for Bathory and Oz)
And that's all I think...
Tell me your favs
Bonus debates: Do you think that it is still (today) a good tool to promote bands ? Or it became totally useless ?
