Working with Blue Pie and the marketing team the focus has been on keeping it real. As Damien Reilly, Blue Pie’s CEO says:
“The band stick to their beliefs and we admire that. We are here to help them get their music to a wider audience. One thing that this band and its fans do not suffer is fools. We are keeping all the marketing at a grass roots real level with no fluff. We focus on the fans and let the music do the talking.
I am very pleased to have been able to help coach the band on the development of this new EP. They listen and have done everything we have asked. They know that when they hit the stage, the performance and the bands energy does the rest. Thats why the band is still here 18 years after they 1st played.
For us at the label we know it is just a matter of time before the rest of worlds metal lovers discover just how good these guys are. They will not slow down and fear is a word they have never heard of, and have no time for. Just go to one of the bands shows and let them show you what metal is all about”
