Oct 27th: I play bass in a Thrash Metal band called GumoManiacs, and they're releasing their 4th+5th studio album today, compiled under the name "By Endurance We Conquer - Demons & Damnation" (which I also produced @Slash Zero Studio) - via Ghost Town Noize. Why 2 CDs? Well, "Damnation" was recorded in 2014, but due to problems with the label at that time, wasn't ever released. These problems and other legal issues forced the band to further delay the release of their next album to 2017, and so both records were packed together on a double disc containing 20 tracks to celebrate the band's 10th anniversary. Finally you can get this piece of Thrash Metal history on CD or listen forever on Spotify!
GumoManiacs celebrate their 10th anniversary this year and will release the double album "By Endurance We Conquer - Demons & Damnation". To achieve this, and to maintain creative freedom from other labels and companies, they started a crowdfunding campaign with lots of interesting videos. Check 'em out - there are even more on their YouTube channel!
So let's start with some history:
Because our label at the time (GoldenCore / ZYX Music) fucked up the CD release of our band GumoManiacs' "Out Of Disorder" album and we were bound to a contract that didn't allow us to look for other labels, I decided to release the LP version on my own, so that's basically the beginning of Slash Zero Records. And to the date, exactly one year after we released that record (Dec 11th, 2015) I'm writing this first blog post here. So technically speaking it's SZR's 1st birthday today - and as a birthday present, I will now officially unveil this website to the world.
