It's June, we're halfway through the year and it's time to reveal the artwork for the next Compilation due to be released on 01/01/2016 to celebrate our third birthday as a webzine!
As you can see it follows the new look of the website with a similar, albeit more bloody, grungy background and a festive looking seal of baphomet within.
The response to the first two compilations has been overwhelmingly positive and I'm grateful to everyone who has downloaded them so far. If you're new to this site and haven't downloaded them yet, please click the album cover in the sidebar and download yourself a free copy of both of them from our bandcamp page. These releases presented us with a steep learning curve. But in both instances we got it together in good time and I'm proud of the final products and how they flow as an album.
Once again we'll aim for a shorter and more concise album that will probably be about sixteen tracks in length maximum rather than trying for a double album as we did with the first compilation. I'm thinking about going for a theme with this one given the devilish style of the artwork, but I sometimes find those a bit cheesy... but if one were to naturally evolve as the submissions come in then that would be fine.
With this in mind I'll be personally sending out invitations to some bands and artist later this month before I open it up to other submissions if there are slots left. That being said, feel free to leave a comment on our Facebook page if you're interested in contributing anything.
As with the first two compilations we'll be looking for exclusive new songs, demos and remixes from new and exciting acts from around the globe. And again we'll be including a PDF booklet with the album that will feature biographical information and hyperlinks for every band and label featured.
Like I said last month, these compilations are a big job, and I put them together on my own. B it is done out of a belief in this website and over the past few years I've been humbled by the bands, artists, labels, promoters and most importantly the readers who believe in it and keep coming back to it.
I hope you'll all continue to download, share and recommend the 'Blood Pack' compilations and most of all support the artists, bands, and labels that submit new and exciting music to them.
Anyway, that's where we are with it this month. I'll be sending out requests to bands myself. But if you'd like to be considered, please feel free to message us.
