INDIE CONTACTS GALORE! (reviewed and recommended by
Underground)

I am a musician that has created a resource called "The Indie Contact
Bible".  I've been working on it for over eight months and have put well
over 1000 hours into this project. It is 311 pages and contains over 3000
reviewers and radio stations that are willing to listen to the music of
independent artists. There are also over 100 services that will help
artists to sell their music over the Internet, as well as over 200
locations that will let artists upload their song files. All genres are
covered!

It is going to be a quarterly publication, thus enabling it to always
remain current. There has been a lot of support and interest from around
the world. The First Edition is now ready.

It is something that I found was badly needed as I waded through the ocean
of dead links and outdated sites in an attempt to promote my own music.

Thanks for your time!

David Wimble

UNDERGROUND A&R SERVICES

::::Market your band to the Labels, Sell & Promote to the Masses:::::

We all hear of marketing and promotions come-ons from the music
industry that are overly expensive, or too good to be true or both.

This isn't one if those....

If you're an independent band or label, there is a way to promote
your goods by being on a cover of a printed fanzine, on the cover
of a popular webzine, ads in more webzines, get your music included
on a broadcast that music consumers, radio AND retailers subscribe
to....be included in music industry newsletters, a&r solicitations
and get interviewed live (maybe even play a cybercast gig live)...

at a cost that no one beats, or even comes close to!

The Underground A&R Report:
http://undergroundrecords.org/a~r.html

There simply isn't anything like it. From the creators of Rockfest,
the Virtual License (Digital Distribution), and defenders of the
faith concerning FREEDOM from the MUSIC INDUSTRY!

BLOODSOAKED REVIEWS
(this is just a sample, see their killer website for all the gore!)

Bloodsoaked Promotions - http://bloodsoaked.simplenet.com

Circle of Dead Children - Starving The Vultures
The first recording from this Pittsburgh area band who plays unique
death metal/grind with political/socail lyrics, Circle of Dead
Children is sure to gain a quick following. Comparable to the likes of
Assuck, Exhumed, Cephalic Carnage and Systral, Circle of Dead Children
is sure to please metal-heads and lovers of extreme hardcore. Starving
The Vultures contains 14 songs clocking in at over 22 minutes.
http://bloodsoaked.simplenet.com/circle.htm

Cranium - Speed Metal Sentence
Cranium's full-length follow up the "Speed metal Slaughter" is ready
to wage war on all the disco dancing fools! The album entitled "Speed
Metal Sentence" is one of the most intense, most talented, and most
German releases of   mega-thrashing madness to ever come out of
Sweden. Prepare to Thrash or be Thrashed, folks. This one is not for
the squeamish. Featuring members of Dawn, Defender, and (ex-)
Afflicted!!!
http://bloodsoaked.simplenet.com/cranium.htm

Creation is Crucifixion - Automata
This is the cd-rom version of this bands newest offering, 4 brand new
songs clocking in at over 16min plus noise tracks. Featuring
ex-members of influential hardcore bands Abnegation and Chapter.
Creation is Crucifixion play super technical metal comparable to the
like of Oppressor, Suffocation, The Dillinger Escape Plan, ect. One of
the most unique and talented bands in music today.
http://bloodsoaked.simplenet.com/creation.htm

Fatal Liquidation - s/t
Fatal Liquidation have brutalized the world with some of the heaviest
music on the planet, with their debut EP "Surrender Your Soul". With
punishing yet catchy riffs, powerful double bass, eerie samples, and
pulverizing vocals which depict gut wrenching tales of death and
disaster. "Surrender Your Soul" is a definite for extreme death metal
fans all over the world.
http://bloodsoaked.simplenet.com/fatal.htm

Forest of Impaled - Demonvoid
"Pure power and aggression, Demonvoid showcases the songwriting and
melodic abilites of this soon to leganday band while at the same time
blasting forth a with a new level of sonic destruciton that is truly
awesome to behold! Fans of blistering, melodic Black Metal will find
themselves hopelessly trapped in the Demonvoid." (Sounds of Death
Magazine)
http://bloodsoaked.simplenet.com/forest.htm

Tartaros - The Red Jewel
In early 1999 Charmand Grimloch (the bizarre madman that is
responsible for Tartaros) entered his own studio, SMI, for the
recording of his latest masterwork entitled "The Red Jewel". A
powerful continuation of his brilliance, "The Red Jewel" showcases
even more of Grimloch's prowess on the
Keyboards all the while layers with his trademark psychedelic horror
that accents his work.
http://bloodsoaked.simplenet.com/tartaros.htm

Various Artist - Thrashing Holocaust
Necropolis Records have finally unleashed the first volume of the
monumental "Thrashing Holocaust" Compilation CD. As you can see, the
bands included on this Compilation take their music and their
lifestyle very seriously albeit, one common bond aligns them all: A
strong emphasis on capturing the feeling and intensity of pure thrash
metal. Finally, hell has arrived! It's a Thrashing Holocaust, and now
your a part of it.
http://bloodsoaked.simplenet.com/holocaust.htm

Vassago - Knights From Hell
Now Vassago are ready to fight the world, rising like the seven-headed
beast, the "Knights From Hell" made the fastest, rawest metal album so
far. Recorded live to get a rawer feeling, as they all think TRUE
METAL should be Raw and Brutal and not deal with any romantic
bullshit! This is Black Death Metal at it's best. Featuring Sin & Pepa
from Lord Belial. Produced & Mixed by Andy La Rocque (King Diamond).
