On Friday Sep 21st, my good friend Andy Kneitinger (under the moniker of "Illegal I") released his debut album "Illegal Eye" (which I had the honor to produce and play bass on) via Slash Zero Records.
Today T.G. Copperfield (whom some of you may know from 3 Dayz Whizkey) releases his 2nd solo album entitled "The Worried Man" (which I co-produced, and Air, as part of T.G.'s "Electric Band", drummed on) via Timezone Records.
Oct 27th: I play bass in a Thrash Metal band called GumoManiacs, and they're releasing their 4th and 5th studio album today, compiled under the name "By Endurance We Conquer - Demons & Damnation" (which I also produced, mixed and mastered) - via Ghost Town Noize.
Why 2 CDs? Well, "Damnation" was recorded in 2014 (when "Ouf Of Disorder" was released with a 2 year delay), 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 CD containing 20 tracks to celebrate the band's 10th anniversary.
Finally you can get this piece of Thrash Metal history on CD!
To achieve this, and to maintain our 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!
I'd rather tell these stories to you "in persona", but chances are that I don't know you personally, or that I haven't had enough time to meet you in person for some time, so I'm gonna write them here for you to read anyway.
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 the Slash Zero Records homepage to this world.
