I'm soon going to relase some stuff on tapes, but first and real problem is cash. I hope ther's will be some labels interesed about wholesale (wholebuy?) and this shit will be sold soon, and I'll get cash for next relases.

In plans is new stuff of polish band ROT and official live bootleg of one old cult usdm band.

There sure is much crap being released, while good stuff are hard to get. Both due to no longer being in print, and the shitload of releases, and sorting it out.

And yes, I also stand AGAINST relasing boring black metal in norwegian style, boring life metal, fun thrash, one-man projects, some expermintes etc. We dont need this. I really like labels like NWN or polish TBT, where we can get EVRY stuff without checking out samples or something before buying, we can just belive into description on flyer / label site.

Unless your pockets are deep to start with I would deter anyone from bothering trying to compete with aready established labels. Unless you know with absolute certainty you are not going to bail out and just release an easy cheap product.

Does not take long to look around and see alot of really poorly done releases, and I imagine they did not start off with the initial intent to make them look like shit, the amount of work probably just became too large and the product just naturally suffered. Best example I can give right now is that vinyl release of THORNS - The Ultimate Manifest vinyl version. A album that could have had great potential and failed.

It is better to have no products done then really shitty products to try and sell. Then you always have to compete as well with the guys that have the ball rolling already and are making excellent products.
Of course on the other hand if you are going to do a wicked job and make a real collectors item, then by all means rock and roll and all the power to you. Cool

My two cents anyways...

Yeah, and there are still some bands doing BM in the Norwegian style better than most of these trendy Black/Thrash bands.

Every genre has good bands, but I agree on the point of not releasing fun Thrash or this kind of crap.

My poinst is that tehrs so many still relasing crap in black metal that find something good is really hard. Maybe maniax of this genere know how find really wroth bands, but if even bigger labels ("bigger" if we talk about UG) still relasing crap? look at Undercover)

Yeah, I suppose that's true, but it still amazes me when releases that nobody really cared about years ago suddenly beoome collector's items that sell for outrageous amounts. Shocked

My opinion is there are far too few death metal labels, as in the kind releasing old style stuff so some bands in this style can have a hard time.

As for one man bands, if they have a similar quality to bands like Lust or whomever, I'll release them. The genre is not overly important to me as long as its good but probably will be mainly metal or outside the ordinary.

Its all a matter of personal taste vs returns i guess. If you want to make money, u have to forsake personal taste a little and vice versa, unless of course your taste for a particular genre is the same as thousands out there.

Anyhow, all the best with your label!

Well, thats the thing, I've no idea if there's even going to be one. Ideally I would like to find an interested partner in the UK who has the time to spare when things get a little hectic. Guess anyone who fits that description can contact me.

Basically, as a student, I'm not sure I can apply for a Prince's Trust loan.

Releasing a record is easy. Getting rid of all copies is another story.
