WINTERSUN: Reality Update About Crowd Funding, TIME II And Future Albums

Finnish symphonic/melodic death metal warriors WINTERSUN have explained WHY the bands new release is taking so long to materialize, between label issues and crowd sourcing delilemas.









WINTERSUN unleashed "Time I" 10/19/2012 via NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.






FROM WINTERSUN:
I´m very happy to see that we have so much dedicated fans that would be willing to pledge and be a part of funding a studio for Wintersun, so I could make the next Wintersun album without it taking another 10 years again.
I´ve been thinking about this Kickstarter/Pledge crowd funding thing for a while and I´m very confident now that there is enough of you guys that would help us raise the money for the Wintersun studio! This would give me the freedom to make music efficiently and nonstop. It would eliminate lot of the problems I´ve struggled with all my life and still continue to struggle everyday. For example right now I need a studio to reamp guitars for TIME II. And not just any studio, my own studio where I can craft my sounds exactly like I want them. 3rd party studios have never worked for me and I´ve never gotten satisfactory results for the insane prices they charge.
I live in a small shitty apartment building and I have neighbors. It is very very hard to work like this. I can´t record vocals, I can´t practise my singing, I can´t record guitars, I can´t record guitars even with modelling amps, because the electricity is so bad in this shitty building so I get lots of interference, I even play and practise the electric guitar acoustically without an amp 99% of the time in my home, I can´t record drums or basically any acoustic instruments, I don´t have the room or cool space for a big computer farm which is a must for the orchestrations for the next album (the place is too small and hot even for the one computer I have), I can´t mix properly, ´cause the room is so bad and there´s always ambient noise in and outside the building. That´s why I usually turn my sleeping rhythm around and mix at nights, but that causes problems in my everyday life. I can´t do pretty much anything properly in this situation. Building a professional studio for Wintersun would erase all this and give us the freedom to make music nonstop. It would upgrade our album sound significantly and most importantly speed up the album making process significantly. This would even raise our live game. With proper preproduction, able to tweak our live sounds and setup properly we would sound pretty incredible live. We would also be able to rehearse more and that would allow us to be able to play live more often and come to places where we normally have not been able to come. The studio would allow us to have more time for everything.
But the problem is this. I have a record deal with Nuclear Blast. If I would do a Kickstarter with a downloadable album for example, they would come with lawyers and take % share (more than half) away from the money that is your money meant for the Wintersun studio and the album production. Would you even want to pledge if Wintersun didn´t get 100% of the money you´ve pledged for the album production? Then our management would take their % share away. Then there´s taxes of course. The Finnish government would take something like 40% away. This would leave me nothing. I would be totally screwed. I´ve been trying to have a discussion with Nuclear Blast about crowd funding, but they are totally freaking out. They see the crowd funding as a threat to their business and they would rather see Wintersun dead, than me doing a crowd funding. I think this would not hurt them at all, only benefit them, but they cannot see the big picture of Wintersun doing well. They actually told me point blank that I should just stop making music and they will never release Wintersun from the contract. It´s really like this, because they can´t or won´t loan me enough money to build a studio and fund an album, they don´t want other people (the fans) to fund it either… unless they get a crazy big cut of the funding (for doing absolutely nothing).
This is the way a record deal works: The label gives an advance to make an album. This is a loan and they will recoup every penny back from the record sales. The reason why TIME I&II has taken so long to make (and still is taking long to finish TIME II), is because I haven´t gotten enough advances (money) to make these complex albums. Not even close. So I´ve been struggling all these years and sacrificed everything to make these albums. I have never really made any money from Wintersun. All my money has gone to album production, but you can guess who have made tons of money from Wintersun. The point is that I need my own studio to make the future albums, but Nuclear Blast won´t be able to loan enough money to make that happen and then they won´t allow me to do a crow funding campaign either that would make it happen. And even if Nuclear Blast would be able to loan me the money for the studio, our management would take their share of that money and I would get only part of the money, but I would still have to pay back 100% to Nuclear Blast from the record sales. So I would actually lose big chunk of the album production money straight away, which makes no sense at all. And then there´s the taxes. So there´s no point of taking these “loans” either.
This all is stressing me out very badly and it´s slowing my workflow. I´ve got enough technical problems to deal with making these albums. I just want the freedom to make music, but I guess it is what it is. Honestly, I feel like I´ve signed a deal with the devil and I´m just a slave in the system.
I´ve got probably 5 long albums worth of new insanely good material! And there´s no filler material at all! The music is much more refined, much more advanced in arrangement/composition/productionwise. It´s diverse and beautiful, heavy, chaotic and exploring different styles&themes and some new dimensions I feel no band has explored before… The stuff is simply on another level, in a different universe than the debut album and the TIME albums combined. I wrote the TIME albums around 2006 and before, that was a lifetime ago. Think of the stuff I´ve written ever since to this day! And I just keep on writing, I feel like I´m on fire. The music is just flowing out of me. I´m so excited about all this new music and I can´t wait to start recording and sharing it with you… BUT I can´t without a studio, that´s the problem…
Jari
p.s. Should have stayed working in the post office!

Thanks-Stay Metal, Stay Brutal-\m/ -l-

We are happy to announce that we will be handling the North American release for Adam Ahlbrandt's film 'The Cemetery'! The editions will include a hand numbered limited to 1000 4disc Blu-Ray/DVD/Soundtrack CD combo pack, a standard 2disc DVD,  limited VHS release and limited hardbox release.

We are aiming for an late October release date.Producers for the horror movie THE CEMETERY are set for a NORTH AMERICAN release OCTOBER 2014 as the horror movie soundtrack features WILLOWTIP RECORDING ARTISTS FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE and artists from said label music are featured in the horror movie "THE CEMETERY" via ADVERSARY FILMS.

Brian Iglesias and Anton Sattler. 

"THE CEMETERY" has been unleashed 1/12/2013 via ADVERSARY FILMS.



FROM THE CEMETERY PRODUCERS:
 A team of paranormal investigators must fight for their lives after accidentally releasing a demon from a forgotten cemetery.








FROM THE CEMETERY PRODUCERS:

Deep in the Pennsylvania hills, a cemetery for those who died during exorcism remains a dark secret for the church. In 1671, hundreds of men, women, and children suffered in bloody, torturous rituals at the hands of priests unable to contain the evil of the possessed. Were these possessions real, or is the story a hoax to cover up the sins of the deranged priests thirsty for human blood? Bill and his team of cynical paranormal investigators plan to find out the truth. As the producer and host of the reality TV show “Ghost Seekers,” Bill and his crew have seen it all: abandoned prisons, haunted houses, and decrepit mental hospitals. Night after night of boring trips to empty run down buildings has left them sure that the dead stay dead and that ghosts are the furthest thing from being real. Their lack of faith will soon be repaid in blood. Armed with the church’s historical record, they set out into the wilderness to uncover this series of forgotten atrocities. The demons of the past are invited to return and the gory details of old sins are revealed as the possessed begin hunting the living. Alternately gut-punching hilarious and brutally violent, The Cemetery takes the best elements of the old-school slasher film and pushes them to the edge.

FROM WILLOWTIP RECORDS:
A bunch of Willowtip artists music will be featured in the upcoming indie horror film The Cemetery. We are super excited about this project. Check out the opening credits here.

FROM THE CEMETERY: 

Welcome the madness! Check out the opening credits with music by FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE. And it begins ...

ITP V.014 UPDATE: BLOG CATALOG SYNDICATE ISSUES


ITP V.014 UPDATE: To tired to write tonight, very pissed off, ITP V.014 will be back later today.                                                                                                                                                                          Soo, it's looks like BLOG CATALOG got a make over with a brand spanking new graphic design (as it SUCKS, as there is hardly any way to get a hold of BLOG CATALOG online)  as BLOG CATALOG has been an ITP syndicate since 2009.

However, ITP V.014's author has NO CONTROL over the account, and no explanation as she forgot her password or/and wants to change it as BLOG CATALOG is NOT sending a new password (pass word reset doesn't work)  to said author whom last logged in 12/31/2013:
BlogCatalog - Password Reset Request: Tue, Dec 31, 2013 6:08 pm

If ITP V.014's author does not have control over her account on BLOG CATALOG , BLOG CATALOG is considered in violation of DMCA copy right, either give me control over my account and feed on BLOG CATALOG or take it down on that syndicate as they have no consent to use it.
Any hacking, I expect the hacker to do 20 years and the maximum in prison, and impersonation, I want criminal charges pressed against them. .
My entertainment attorney will take action very soon, with a lawsuit and various copy right and creative commons infringements.

There fore, ITP V.014's authors choice, BLOG CATALOG is NO LONGER an ITP V.014 syndicate, as they will be met with legal action. No loss regarding BLOG CATALOG, btw, the feed rarely works, I was SHOCKED it worked (briefly) this month as ITP posts a lot and that syndicate can't keep up.

My landlord is also suspect, and perhaps under arrest, as we settle this issue.
ITP V.014's author counted BLOG CATALOG as having 30 DMCA violations (30 journal entries without consent more likely MORE) , enough to shut down their server as complaints from ITP V.014 ALONE.

This is the SECOND time in 2014, (MUSIC NEWS HQ got busted) and the third time since 2013 that a syndicate has used and aggregated  ITP WITHOUT consent and ITP and her lawyer stepped in and stopped the exploitation out of court.

If I can't communicate with BLOG CATALOG and get to the bottom of this, I would DEFINITELY take them to court for copyright DMCA violations and a lot of people in the music industry would too.    

FROM ITP V.014 AUTHOR: 
 http://www.blogcatalog.com/blogs/individual-thought-patterns-v014
If I don't have control over my account ITP V.014 wil send a DMCA violation to blog catalog. Let me change my password.


Hey. I'm the author of ITP V.014 , how come i can't change my password?
Again, if I can't control my account on BLOG CATALOG, they can NOT use my content, they have no consent, and I'll take legal action. Thanks-Stay Metal, Stay Brutal-\m/ -l-

Promoters for ALT FEST 2014, set to take place 8/15-17, 2014 BOUGHTON ESTATE, KETTERING, NORTHAMPTONSHIRE, UK has sent this statement, with a more detailed statement to be issued before MONDAY. According to inside sources, ALT FEST 2014 s RUMORED to be CANCELLED although there, as of press time, has been no official announcement from the promoters, there fore the RUMORS of  ALT FEST 2014 being cancelled are NOT denied nor CONFIRMED.
ITP V.014 will keep all updated.





However, MARILYN MANSON have officially announced the band has cancelled out of ALT FEST 2014 with other band cancellation announcements coming soon.






https://www.facebook.com/events/1459710900919320/

Promoters for ALT FEST 2014 have confirmed THE CULT, FRONT 242, COVENANT, LEATHER STRIP, PARADISE LOST, SATYRICON, CRADLE OF FILTH, THE DAMNED, PETER MURPHY,  and more hard rock and extreme metal bands.






FROM ALT FEST 2014 PROMOTERS:
We at Alt-Fest HQ would like to sincerely apologise for our silence over the last 24 hours. Currently we are working all hours to deal with some extremely challenging & stressful issues for Alt-Fest. We will be able to provide an official statement with full information before Monday and answer any questions you may have at that time. We want you to know that we have been doing everything we can to take the right steps for you: our fans, friends & customers - we assure you we only have your best interests at heart.

I'd love to be open and transparent but currently and frustratingly I cannot, when we can we will! xx
Missy and Dom


FROM DAMNATION FEST 2014:
Everyone at Damnation is saddened to hear that Alt Fest has run into difficulties.
Putting on a festival is a huge undertaking; the sleepless nights, the brain-melting accounting, the mammoth task of keeping everybody happy... but it looks like the ambitious plans that Alt Fest had laid out just weren't feasible for one reason or another.
We understand the anger fans, traders and backers - who've been left in the dark, but hopefully not out of pocket- must feel right now.

The crowd funding initiative that kicked Alt Fest off was an encouraging success for live music in the UK. Hopefully among all of you disheartened by this turn of events there are plenty who still believe in supporting live music with a passion.

With us looking forward to one of our most successful years, and in an effort to play our small part in maintaining a trust to accompany that passion, we will answer any questions regarding the running of Damnation Festival - past, present and future.
Now's your chance to probe us*, and without betraying official secrets or divulging people's home addresses, we'll do our best to be as transparent about the running of a festival as humanly possible.
-Gavin, Paul & Becky.
*If your question is "can my band play Damnation?", then the chances are the answer is unfortunately "not this time".

KMFDM: SET TO UNLEASH "OUR TIME WILL COME"

German industrial/metal legends KMFDM have announced the PRE-ORDER for the bands anticipated new release "OUR TIME WILL COME", due to be unleashed 10/14/2014 via METROPOLIS RECORDS.










KMFDM  unleashed  "KUNST", 2/16/2013 on METROPOLIS RECORDS.


FROM KMFDM:
Now accepting pre-orders for the new album, "OUR TIME WILL COME". Because our time will, in fact, come.


CD Pre-Order - Release Date: Oct. 14, 2014!
Thirty years into the conceptual crusade that is the Ultra Heavy Beat, our fearless Kapt’n K and his collection of cohorts have delivered a bold declaration of unremitting purpose. KMFDM has always been able to bend the lines between techno innovation, punk snarl, metal aggression. Dance beats and crunching guitars carry us through the manifesto that is OUR TIME WILL COME.
With this album We see KMFDM in top form, kicking off the album with the sneering humor of GENAU, where we are given quite the lesson in Deutsch zu sprechen. From there the band rips through the gamut, from the infectious slap bass of SHAKE THE CAGE, the uptempo hallelujahs of SALVATION, the seething menace of BLOOD VS. MONEY, to the battle cry that is the closing track MAKE YOUR STAND, this album proves that even though they call it OUR TIME WILL COME, KMFDM’s time is now.
01. Genau
02. Shake The Cage
03. Respekt
04. Our Time WIll Come
05. Salvation
06. Blood Vs. Money
07. Get The Tongue Wet
08. Brainwashed
09. Playing God
10. Make Your Stand

VIDEO BELOW: KMFDM: "A DRUG AGAINST WALL STREET" (COURTESY OF KMFDM): 
In support of the October 15th Global Day Of Action KMFDM releases "A Drug Against Wall Street"

KHOLD: SET TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM ‘TIL ENDES’ VIA PEACEVILLE RECORDS ON 29TH SEPTEMBER 2014

Norwegian black metal warriors KHOLD are set to unleash "TIL ENDES", due to be unleashed 9/29/2014 (EUROPE) and 9/30/2014 (NORTH AMERICA) via PEACEVILLE RECORDS.










 KHOLD unleashed "Hundre Ar Gammal" 7/9/2008 via TABU RECORDINGS.






FROM PEACEVILLE RECORDS:
After a period of 6 years in the wilderness, Norway’s exponents of groove-laden black metal are back with a new album, ‘Til Endes‘ set for release on 29th September (30th September US) on Peaceville Records.
‘Til Endes‘, undoubtedly the band’s strongest work to date explores the dark foreboding corners of the metal spectrum with eerie riffs, grim vocals courtesy of mysterious frontman Gard, and catchy hooks which are so often ignored in the genre.

GOD DETHRONED: RE-UNION SHOWS IN 2015?

Netherlands based death metal warriors GOD DETHRONED have sent his update confirming a 2015 re-union and a few shows including the 2015 70,000 Tons of Metal.









GOD DETHRONED last unleashed "Under The Sign Of The Iron Cross" 11/22/2010 via METAL BLADE RECORDS.

GOD DETHRONED disbanded in 2011.










FROM GOD DETHRONED:
In early 2011, I was facing two options: one was to announce a break, and the other option was to quit the band. I definitely needed time away from it all, and having a break wasn't reassuring enough to know if I would be able to recharge the batteries for another go.

Oddly enough it was at the funeral of the man who discovered us in the first place that I came to realize the story wasn't finished yet. So here we go again. Don't think you will be able to see us playing every club for weekends on end. We will only play a small selection of shows and this won't happen before 2015. Besides that, the core of the band will consist of only Michiel and myself. We'll have some cool guest musicians lined up, though, to make sure we'll give you the best performance possible.

Last but not least, our first shows will be where we played our last ones three years ago. Our rebirth will happen at 70,000 Tons of Metal 2015. See you around!

NOCTURNAL POISONING: INK DEAL WITH THE END RECORDS

NOCTURNAL POISONING,  the post XASTHUR California bluegrass/acoustic rock project has just inked a deal with THE END RECORDS as the projects anticipated new release is due out 10/7/2014 via THE END RECORDS.



NOCTURNAL POISONING unleashed "A Misleading Reality" 7/13/2013 (SELF RELEASED).

ITP V.09 REVIEW: XASTHUR: "ALL REFLECTIONS DRAINED":

http://spak-individualthoughtpatterns.blogspot.com/2009/07/itp-review-xasthur-all-reflections.html

FROM NOCTURNAL POISONING:
Nocturnal Poisoning has now reached a deal with The End Records, who approached me earlier in the year. The third CD (doomgrass) will be pressed and distributed by The End, as well as vinyl LP pressings of previous albums, regular and tie dyed t-shirts. This should all be around October 7th.
I like the direction that The End is going in...in the direction of all around music, which is more than a scene or one genre. They seem to believe in the direction I'm going in, as well. I'm curious to see where this new road will take NP.

The End has a wider reach and is capable of doing a better job than I've been doing over the past couple years, in terms of distribution. They will also have copies of 'a misleading reality' in stock through the omega order.

*disclaimer: this deal with the end records does not mean that I owe you and your band any favors.

MARDUK: "It has come to our attention that a tour with Deicide and Marduk has been announced. This was unfortunately an error"

Swedish black metal legends MARDUK have announced the band is NOT on the anticipated fall 2014 NORTH AMERICAN tour with DEICIDE, SEPTIC FLESH and CARACH ANGREN.



MARDUK unleashed "Serpent Sermon" 5/25/2012 via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS.



FROM MARDUK:
It has come to our attention that a tour with Deicide and Marduk has been announced. This was unfortunately an error, seeing as we already declined this offer. As to why this was broadcast in the first place we can but speculate, but most likely it’s a case of miscommunication.

Promoters for ALT FEST 2014 have confirmed THE CULT, FRONT 242, COVENANT, LEATHER STRIP, PARADISE LOST, SATYRICON, CRADLE OF FILTH, THE DAMNED, PETER MURPHY,  and more hard rock and extreme metal bands.

FROM CAUSTIC:
Alt Fest has been canceled. I really wanted this to happen for the sake of all my friends that were booked, but it was a risky move how they tried to put it together and ultimately fell apart. And yes, I had it confirmed with someone in the know.
Hopefully refunds are imminent and that the bands aren't too screwed. This just sucks regardless of how people felt about the fest itself, so my sympathies go out to the bands and ticketholders.
Go to Infest instead if you can, though. That shit is locked and will be amazing.
